5 Trails for Thrill Seekers in China

If you like to live your life on the edge (quite literally), here are 5 places you have to visit in China.

1) World’s longest glass bridge – Hunan, China

This bridge opened at the Shiniuzhai National Geological Park in Hunan China. It spans 984 feet long, hangs over 590 feet and the bottom is made of completely glass! Currently it is the longest glass bridge in the world, definetly worth a visit.

2) Huashan Trail – Huayin, China

Chinese Tea is arguably one of the best in the world, but would you risk your life to visit this teashop? At the top of Mt. Huashan 2,160m up, you can find a Taoist temple that has been converted into a teahouse. This path is dubbed the most dangerous hike in the world, most of the path consists a series of chains that has been hammered into the mountain and wood planks. The last stretch of the hike is a climb directly up with foot holes that has been hammered out of the mountain. Do you dare to make the climb?

3) Cliffside steps - Hunan, China

If the Huashan Trails are too much for you, come to Zhangjiajie for the safer version. The Cliffside steps allow you to walk on the side of the floating mountains, but this time there is a handrail and considerably more walking space.

4) Xuankong Temple – Shanxi, China

This temple is located at the side of a mountain in Hunyuan County on top of a cliff. It gives an appearance that the building is hanging off the cliff, when in actuality most of the structure is built into the mountain. More than anything, this temple is the only existing temple that combines Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism.

5) Glass Walkway – Zhangjiajie, China

This walkway is 60 meters long and from it you can see thousands of feet below. Zhangjiajie is really the place to go for a trill. Not only will you find the Cliffside steps and glass walkway, they are currently constructing a glass bridge that will beat the one in Hunan to be the longest in the world!

So which one of these locations do you dare to walk through?
