    i am sure most of us have seen parts of these pics from the internet. however, this is a comprehensive collection of pics and descriptions.
    just looking at the pics and reading the account "a foolish journey" gave me chills................how many here would take that hike?:eek:oooh:

    You wouldn`t catch me on that trail, it doesn`t look like a good huntin` spot.

    That there would be a trip of a life time.
    I would love to go see china some day. There culture is very interesting to me.
    When and if I get the chance I will try to go on that hike and see the great wall as well as do some fishing over there.

    I'd do it if I had the time and $$$. I think it's beautiful. I'm not too sure about the wood plank parts, but I'd get over it.

    my thoughts. i dont like heights. i got a funny panic feeling looking at the pics.

    now my main reason. i have many things and HAD many things made in china. and most dont last long. so no i aint trustin my life to those planks and rusted chains.

    seen all i need to see of that narrow peak from those pics. and if i ever get to china, maybe if i live to be a million i can afford it, ill know exactly were not to go.
