There are few mountain tourist trails as dangerous as the below pictured route on Mt. Hua in China's Shaanxi Province. Not only does much of the trail consist of narrow footpaths and extremely steep staircases, but there are also a few sections where hikers must scale across cliffs on a rusty chain and some foot-sized holes chiseled in the rock. There's even a place where one must descend a 20 meter chain to reach the continuation of the trail!
