The Teahouse from Heck

Travel No Comments

My friend sent me this and I thought, wow, I would love to visit this tea house. But to get there, I have to take a mountain trail in China; specifically, Hua Shan mountain near Xi’an, ShanXi Province.

Update: It turns out that this trail is the popular Mount Hua Pilgrimage. Supposedly, the Chinese government has made the pilgrimage much safer by adding wider and less dangerous paths.

First, we’ll need to take a tram to the start of the trail. teahouse1.jpg
Now take the plank path. teahouse2.jpg
Make sure you have a solid grip on the chain. teahouse3.jpg
Look ahead now and then. teahouse4.jpg
Careful when passing people coming back down. teahouse5.jpg
A few steps to help you now and then. teahouse6.jpg
Dig your foot into that hole. teahouse7.jpg
Almost there… just a couple of steps left. teahouse8.jpg
Finally, made it. Sit, relax, have some tea, and contemplate the trip back. teahouse9.jpg

I believe this post is the original. There is also a video of the plank path.
