For thousands of years, pilgrims have been making the dangerous trek to the temples on the five spires of Mount Hua Shan. What is unique about this temple is that all the climbs are dangerous and the stairways are extremely steep. The trail on the South Mountain has wooden platforms on the side and the trekkers need to take the support of the iron chain that holds the board several thousand feet above the ground. It is said that nearly a hundred people lose their lives making the pilgrimage every year.
