A nail-biting hike

Eurest | Being safe |  10 September 2015


Mount Hua Shan is described as one of the most terrifying hikes in the world. Some fearless people go to flabbergasting extremes and hand-shaking heights on a walk in China. Chains are bolted on to the cliff-tops, planks of wood precariously fastened to the rock face and gondola lifts take you across nail-biting heights. These are just some of the perilous obstacles faced by people brave enough to take on the challenge.  

Despite the obvious danger walkers have to put themselves through in order to complete the trek, there’s still an increasing amount of visitors. The promise of serenity and a warm cup of hard-earned tea keep people coming back in larger numbers each year.

At Eurest, no matter how hard you work for that comforting cup of tea, we’ll make it as easy as possible for you to get it.
