Fairy Tale Bridge on 'Terror Trail' in China

Sometimes you have to risk a little for a worthwhile thing. On this incredibly scary-looking trail (which is certainly not for the faint-of-heart tourist), the rewards are the incredible views and a gorgeous bridge while the risk is... real. Everything could be straight out of a classic tale, leaving you breathless - both from wonder and terror. I find the juxtaposition perfect for a fairy tale.

The location: Yellow Mountain, China - a World Heritage Site since 1990.

The famous "Sea of Clouds"

If you've never seen photos of this location before yet it seems familiar it's probably because the mountain range has been a popular subject for painters for centuries. It's not hard to see why.

The article on the trail, which shows and describes what the experience is like for those brave enough to try, is HERE.
