Tourists set up camp on 1,700m high cliff edge

Would you dare to set up camp here for the weekend?

More than 100 backpackers slept in their tents while perched on a 1,700-metre cliff face after they camped along a plank road that hugs Laojun Mountain in Henan province in July.

The spine-tingling campsite, however, rewarded them with breathtaking views of the sea of clouds that fills up the valley below like an expanse of water.

According to China Daily, Qu Wei, 28, a tour guide at Laojunshan scenic spot, said the tourists enjoyed doing yoga, playing the seven-string Chinese zither and taking videos with the background of the sea of clouds.

She said: "It was very thrilling to do yoga at an altitude of 2,000 metres.

"The scenic spot is covered with Wi-Fi, which enables tourists to share their experience on social networking sites or apps."

One of the organisers of the trip, Xu Lei, told the Metro: "We started to climb on Friday evening and made camp at the hanging plank road, about 1,700 meters high.

"That area is on the back of the mountain with little wind and does not open to ordinary tourists. It is a relatively comfortable place for backpackers."

Hmm, we think we'll take his word for that. There was also apparently a railing that kept tourists from rolling off the cliff as they slept.

*I am Still not convinced*.
