The Laojun Mountain in China's Henan province plays host to a summer camping event which is part of a local festival each year. But the camping site is definitely not for the faint of heart. Hundreds of campers set out on a trek to reach the destination for the glory of camping overnight and witnessing the beautiful sunrise over the horizon.

At 3,300 feet high, a 6-foot-wide pathway snakes alongside the mountain.

The pathway is 6,562 feet long and covered with dozens of colourful tents.

The mountain stands about 2 miles outside of Luoyang City.

The camping event is organised to help people build a strong character and sharpen outdoor surviving skills.

Not to mention enjoy blissful views.

A small group of tourists can even trek higher than the path.

At the peak, about 7,273 feet high, is the The Golden Pavillion - the holiest site for Taoist priests.


This is truly a once in a lifetime experience.
