A 12 inches wide cliff pathway in China has been declared among the world’s most dangerous tourist attractions.

This vertigo-inducing picture shows tourists navigating an extremely narrow and treacherous walkway along cliffs at a scenic mountain in China’s Shaanxi Province.

The precipitous Chang Kong Cliff Road on Haushan mountain was built more than 700 years ago by hermits seeking ‘immortals’ they thought were living deep in the mountains.

The walkway is only a foot wide and has been built clinging to the absolutely vertical cliff. One misstep could see you fall hundreds of meters down the stone valley.

Those brave enough to navigate the path have to wear a special safety harness.
