Have you ever wondered what the most dangerous hiking trail in the world could look like?

Mount Huangshan in China is a dangerous hiking trail, treacherous and exilerating.  It is uncertain as to how many have lost hold and fell to a quick death but thankfully, it has become a popular tourist attraction and is safe to traverse due to its commercialization. A tram can be taken to get adventure seekers closer to the top and safety harnesses are available for the boardwalk section shown above.

Here is a google map of Mount Huangshan location.

    And I just realized why I never saw that image – this site is wrong. They said “Huangshan” but they mean “Huashan”. Fail.

      Thanks for the comment. When I researched this trail, I found that the name was spelled several ways. Please do tell the story of the broken leg and give more detail on the name mistake. I did read for several hours, look up maps etc on this because it was so interesting! The section of the trail in the picture is a short side section that you venture along then return to the main trail.

        Hiya, There are two separate mountains. One of them is Mt. Hua (Huashan), and the other is Mt. Huang (Huangshan). The trail you mentioned above is at Huashan.

        You can wiki both of them. They are very different mountains and at very different places.

Fluff the fatwood by scraping the stick with the edge of your striker. If a hunting knife is available, use the BACK of the blade to fluff.

Step 2.

Practice getting a spark to land on the pile of fluffed fatwood by using your ferro rod and the edge of your striker.

Step 3.

Direct the sparks to the top of the pile of fluffed fatwood by using your QUICK-FIRE and the edge of the Striker. (Or use the back of a blade)
