1 – MOUNT HUASHAN HEAVENLY STAIRS, CHINA
If you feel like living a real adventure, then Mount Huashan Heavenly Stairs in China could be an ideal place for you. After checking photos of this place online, you would definitely contact your travel booking agent and book a trip to China.
Don’t let the word ‘heaven’ deceive you, because this walk is more hell-like. The heavenly stairs go high up into the Taoist mountainside, and they are actually craved into this sacred mountain.
You will find a single railing supporting the side stone steps, which helps trekkers as they ascend.
And just when you think it’s all over, you’ll find the most dangerous trail on earth waiting for you, which literally consists of wooden planks attached to the side of the mountain with a chain. So travels booking to china doesn’t seem like a bad idea after all.
2 – HAIKU STAIRS, OAHU, HAWAII
Other stairs that you’d love to check online travel booking websites for are the Haiku Stairs in Oahu, Hawaii. However, unfortunately, ‘officially’ you won’t be able to climb them since they are so dangerous that officials had to ban them.
Constructed in 1942, these 3,922 stairs were established in order to install communication wires by the U.S Navy. Soon, people start organizing hiking trips over there to check out their incredible views.
But the stairs were closed due to safety reasons in the 80s and officials put a guard at the bottom stairs to stop climbers who ignored the ban back at the time.
