Teahouse On Top Of The World

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

Yikes! Would you dare a climb up this mountain to enjoy a traditional cuppa of Chinese tea? I wouldn't come even close because I am terrified of heights but tons of people swear by this place. The tiny tea-house is located on top of Huashan Mountain in China and wait for this: it’s the steepest and one of the most dangerous hiking trails in the world where in parts you have to climb by pressing your body to the cliff’s wall. Crazy! I read somewhere that the view from the top mixed with a relaxing cuppa makes it all worth it. Truthfully, I'm not sure. What do you think? Would you dare? xo

P.S: Also, bivouacking on the edge of a mountain.
P.P.S: Manatee watching - yes, please!

That is crazy indeed, diana. I would be so scared to go there. I remember reading in a british newspaper about it a while ago and thinking that it would be something incredible to experience. Grace.

that is so wild! i think it would take a lot to get me up there but it would be so worth it. i would also think coming down would be more difficult.
it's a good thing they don't serve vodka at the top, LOL!

Looks gorgeous! It would be cool to say been there done that - but not cool enough to actually get me to climb it. Fear of heights wins again!

Now, I love tea, but can I just say HELL NO??? It looks amazing and adventurous, but I'd probably wet my pants and cry like a baby the whole time.

I love a great cup of tea, but I couldn't even attempt this hike.. how scary!! I'm actually super excited because we just found an authentic Chinese tea house super close to our place! You would love it :)

Well I've certainly spent time in China (in some) of the countries truly beautiful tea regions. Never placed as precariously as this though!
