Mount Huashan is located in Huayin city, China and is an incredible 2,200m high and is one of the five great mountains of China.

The way up the mountain includes incredible vertical climbs and treacherous paths – a harness system has even been installed because of the danger.

Flight attendant Alex, 33, is used to height, but this has to be a step further – he took this incredible footage in September of last year as he climbed the colossal height.

Alex said: “I was looking for something fun and different that my classic sightseeing and classic videos that I film usually.

“It was my first time to hike such a trail – I guess there are not that many trails like this around the globe.

“It took me a couple of hours to be at the top and from there took me about 45 minutes of intense hiking on a tiny plank against the rock.

“I was excited more than scared to hike it under a beautiful weather – it was very hot in the part of China in the summer, but it was totally worth it.

“For people who plan to do this hike, I would let them know to wear some descent trainers – I wore some basic trainers and it made the hike very slippery!”
