Here I was thinking Kalalau Trail in Kauai, Hi.

"(China's) Huashan Trail is not about mountain-climbing but hiking. As such, you don’t get to use special equipment that could save your life – it’s just you, the mountain and if you think ahead, a pair of gloves."






Huashan Trail

I could not walk on such a narrow ledge. I'd be screaming hysterically!

The people who accept the mountain’s hiking challenge are usually young daredevils using this opportunity to show-off their “mad skills”; unfortunately many of them have fatal accidents. Although many speak of around 100 deadly accidents on the Huashan Trail every year, “thanks” to Chinese censorship there are no official records of any such incidents.
Holy crap! Although I don't believe the 100 deadly accidents a year stat---those pictures are pretty crazy. You gotta love the Chinese and their liability-free over-the-top culture when it comes to this sort of thing.

I'd definitely make that hike though if I ever was in that part of China.
