China: Shocking sight of tourists climbing a super high, vertical mountain.TranYen

Tourists will spend 4 hours climbing 8,000 steps along a steep cliff to reach the famous temple on the top of Fanjingshan Mountain, China. This place is beautiful but not for those with a fear of heights.

In 2019, when National Geographic published its list of “World’s Greatest Trips” with 28 selected locations, Fanjingshan Mountain in southwestern China’s Guizhou Province was the only tourist destination in China to make the list.

Mount Fanjingshan is the highest mountain in the Wuling Mountains in southwestern China, with its highest peak at 2,572 metres above sea level. A sacred Buddhist site, Mount Fanjingshan is home to numerous temples and is one of the five sacred Buddhist mountains in China.

Hundreds of millions of years ago, Fanjingshan Mountain slowly rose from the ocean floor due to the force of the earth. Stunning landscapes such as steep cliffs, deep valleys and waterfalls formed 1 to 1.4 billion years ago have been perfectly preserved here.

Fanjingshan Mountain is home to more than 2,000 species of plants and hundreds of endangered animals. Fanjingshan is a “treasure trove” of wild plants and animals and has been dubbed China’s “gene database.”

Fanjingshan Mountain attracts tourists.

Fanjingshan Mountain was officially added to the UNESCO natural heritage list on July 2, 2018, becoming China’s 53rd UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Visitors can choose to climb the 8,000 steps up the steep cliff or take a cable car to the top. The hike takes about four hours and you can stop at small grocery stores along the way that provide snacks and water. While the hike can be exhausting, it will give you a sense of being close to nature.
