Bridge of Immortals
When speaking of amazing feats of architecture atop strangely-shaped granite peaks, The Bridge Of Immortals immediately comes to mind.
The world’s highest bridge is situated in the Yellow Mountains, also known as Huangshan. From the bridge you will have a breathtaking view, and see how the clouds are touching mountainsides beneath you.
You can either take the ‘safe and secure’ way up or try the ‘South Heavenly Gate’…which is where you will end up if you fall. It consists of 3 shady looking planks held together by some flimsy wire, and a rusty looking chain to hold onto for dear life.
