This is the scariest route of the world. It is called the ” Kings little pathway”. This path way was crossed by the Spanish king Alphanjo 13th to reach the hydro electric power plant  located between Chorro falls and Gaitenzo falls.

Mount Huashan Trail | China
There was time when only Monks were trod-ding these trails. As the Europeans got to know of this adventurous area, slowly the place beckoned more and more spirituous people. The challenge grew up and they were on the call. Every year the adventure sport people increased  because of difficult and challenging requirements have interested them. Trekkers have to face stairs iron bolted to the mountain side, obstructions like ladders, cables, ledges and temples on top of the mountains keep luring. The ladders and other paraphernalia have corroded over the years and may give way and prove too dangerous to reach the goal. So it is a tough fight all the way but very joyous to be able complete this trail.
