We've already heard about adventure tourism, which typically involves a mountain bike ride, white water raft action, or another adrenaline based sport. However, danger tourism takes your adventure to the next level.

The following set of pictures shows 'the world's most dangerous tourist route'. The sketchy mountain side path leads you up the Huashan Mountain near Xi'an, China. China Highlights describes the road, "Huashan Mountian is located some 240 kilometers away from Xi'an, approximately a two and half hours drive. It is one of the five sacred mountains in China. Huashan Mountain is well-known for its sheer cliffs and plunging ravines. It is the most dangerous mountain in China for climbers."
