Mount Hua is the birthplace of Chinese civilization and one of the five famous mountains in China, with an altitude of 2154.9 meters. It is known as “the most dangerous mountain in the world”. It is a cultural mountain and a holy place of the mainstream Quanzhen school of Taoism.

The walking plank is located on the east side of the South Peak and is built on the 10,000-foot wall with stone nails and wooden rafters. Up and down the stack are cliff walls, by more than 30 centimeters wide planks and rocks built, below is the abyss of ten thousand feet, only by a steel rope as a grip.

The stone ladder is cut into the east peak wall, more than 10 meters high, vertical to the ground at an angle of 90 degrees, the upper part of the protruding outward, like an inverted cliff. Three hanging ropes are placed on the ladder, so visitors can’t climb with the ropes, and their bodies can’t be close to the cliff, so they swing with the ropes.

The Harrier Flip is the way to the East Peak under the chess pavilion, cut into the upside-down wall. When you look down, you can only see the iron rope vertically in the air, with no path in sight. Tourists have to hold their bodies against the wall, hands clutching the iron rope, and use their toes to explore the stone nest, alternating and down.
