Perilous Pilgrimage (China)

The Deadly Mt Huashan Hiking Trail - Formerly the five mountains were dotted with temples but now only a few remain. The mountain routes are still trekked by devoted pilgrims and wandering monks intent of visiting the sacred shrines. In order to reach certain temples and the caves of the sages great courage is needed. Pilgrims must scale cliffs with only a linked chain for support and to fall is certain death.
(When I showed these to a hiker friend she translated the Chinese words on one of the photos:
If chain brockie, no lockie, oh fockie, you droppie!)

Oh great!

Sil may have opened the door to a new rush on the Chinese Pilgrimage, along the same lines as the German radio personality who wrote a book on his Camino and rekindled German interest in the Camino.

Nice going Sil...
