China’s Spectacular Cliff Paths

Huangshan (literal meaning Yellow Mountain) is a mountain range in southern Anhui province in eastern China. The area is well known for its scenery, sunsets, peculiarly-shaped granite peaks and pine trees. Huangshan is a frequent subject of traditional Chinese paintings and literature.
There are more than 30 touring paths in total in Huangshan mountains, which are 50 km (31mi) in total length and 1-2 meters (3-6ft) wide generally.

“Fairytale bridge” is part of the trail network. From the bridge you will have a breathtaking view of the mountainside that lays beneath.

  1. What a great idea, being able to appreciate such magnificent scenery from the relative safety of those paths.
    I would love to have seen them being constructed, getting the materials there must have been a logistical nightmare.
