Mt. Huashan in Huayin, China, has a death-defying cliff-side mountain hike for only the bravest or most foolish hikers alive.

The paths carry a reputation for as many as 100 fatal falls a year.

Some of the more dangerous parts of the trails have names like Thousand-Foot Precipice, Hundred-Foot Crevice, and Black Dragon Ridge.

Monks, nuns, and pilgrims carved a network of stairs and trails leading to the mountain’s peaks.

The mountain’s highest southern peak reaches 2,160 m (7,087 ft).
