HORRIBLE STAIRWAY IN THE WORLD

World is full of with so many countries. So its natural to find something there what is unbelievable. But when you see that from your own eyes, then you have to believe. So here something what my eyes seen in recent time.

 

1.  Huashan Stairway (China): – There are many holy mountains scattered throughout China, most of which are not described with the word ‘dangerous’ or climbed through the night. Then there’s Hua Shan. The most dangerous hike in the world, Mt. Huashan, China – That is part of historical stairs in China. The hike with vertical stairs formation was built hundreds of years ago for the purpose of practice and martial arts training by the Shaolin (Kung-Fu masters) and participants.Image

 

2.  Tiger and Turtle (Germany):- On the 13th of November, the city of Duisburg, Germany was happy to welcome its newest sculpture and attraction – one of the biggest in the country – Tiger and Turtle. This is called Magic Mountain and is positioned upon a hilltop in Duisburg, Germany. ImageThe curved flight of stairs inscribes like a signature on the landscape and recruits the nimbus of the classical roller coaster. Having a closer look, the public is disappointed in a disarming way. The visitor climbs on foot via differently steep steps the roller-coaster-sculpture.

 

3.  Lello Bookshop, Porto, (Portugal):- Lello Bookshop is considered one of the most beautiful in the world and definitely one of the must see places in Porto. The Lello Bookshop is famous for its winding staircase and vibrant pink color. ImageIt was built in 1906 by an engineering professor, Xavier Estevez.  Packed with old and new books, it provides a wonderful experience for book lovers and architecture aficionados alike.

 

4.  Teensy island, San Juan de Gaztelugatxe (Spain):- Gaztelugatxe, one of the most unique places in Spain, is a little island situated in the Bay of Biscay just at the Spanish coast in Basque Country. It is connected to the mainland by a man-made bridge. ImageThis tiny island dedicated to John the Baptist has a stunning, weaving stairway by the sea. Once you make it to the top, tradition says you should ring the church bell three times.

 

5.  Haiku Stairs (Hawaii):- Haiku Stairs, also known as the Haiku Ladder, Pali Ladder, and Stairway to Heaven. It’s easy to see why the Haiku Stairs on the island of O’ahu is also known as the ‘Stairway to Heaven’. It’s currently technically illegal to climb them, due to liability concerns.Image But the rule is reportedly not strictly enforced and many travelers have snapped photos from top.
