Photo of the week: Thousands of Golden Locks at mount Huashan

This Golden Locks are locked to the iron chain at mountain Huashan, by visitors who pray for the health and safety of their families.

There are thousands of them along the trails leading to the peak of the mountains.

Situated just 120 kilometers East of Xi’an City, in Shaanxi province, Huashan (华山) is one of China’s five sacred mountains and one of the country’s most popular tourist attractions. It’s appreciated for the beautiful natural scenery and the ancient Taoist temples, but Huashan is most famous for the dangerous hiking trail to the summit.

  4. Me and a few friends hiked there last year. Scary but such an amazing experience. I definitely want to go back.

    • Hi Mike,

      Yes this is indeed an amazing place. One of a kind.
      The only pity was that you cannot explore other areas besides the
      paved trails and stairs.
      But we still enjoyed our stay there very much.
