This is the second time I have visited Hua Shan mountain located near the city of Xi'an. Luckily this time it wasn't windy so I was able to traverse the amazing plank walk.

PS. Many apologies for swearing in video

Before reaching the planks it is necessary to walk along a narrow ledge and then climb down a near vertical chain ladder on the cliff side. For safety reasons a harness must be worn which has attached to it 2 clips. One or both clips are connected to a series of thick metal cables that run all the way down the cliff side, along the plank walk and beyond.

So all in all the so called "Most Dangerous Hike in the World" is actually quite a safe hike. As long as you don't do anything stupid that is :-)
