What is the thing you see in the picture called? On which mountain is it located?
It's called via ferrata and is located on Mount Hua/Hua Shan.
Partly correct, I'm not going to reveal which part though. Have another try, answer will be disclosed within 2.5 hours.
Via ferrata is wrong. It's name is "Thousand feet".
Well, I initially posted this looking for Plank Path as the answer, which is the most common name for this path. A bit more research told me that it is also known as the Thousand-feet Precipice, according to which your answer is kind of incomplete, because the word precipice describes the path, BUT, I also saw that this picture.is saved on Wikimedia as Thousand Feet. Since the answers are based solely on research done by you, all will be the correct answer, congrats Joana.
The Plank path, also known as the thousand Feet Precipice, is deemed as the most dangerous mountain walks in the world. It is made solely of planks, which make a thin path, with chains to hold on to. It also has parts to climb. It has nothing to save you if you fall down.
Thousands of tourists from all over the world make this thrilling journey, just to end up at a tea shop, at the peak. Of course, the great view also accompanies them.
Just for your information, a Via Ferrata is an iron path.
Challenge goes over to you!
Via ferrata is also an expression for a protected climbing route. That's how I found the mountain.
Thank you! I'll continue soon.
Well, this is most unprotected.
Waiting for your next.
Here it is:
Where is the location of this building, when was it founded, and what will you find there?
This is the National Library of Belarus, in Minsk, Belarus. It was founded on 15th September 1922. It has the third largest collection of books in Russian and the largest collection of materials printed in Belarus.
If I am right, and if its okay with you, i will post the next challenge, but the answer will be posted 13-14 hours from now, as i have to go to bed soon, if you do not guess the location...
This is the right answer. We'll wait for your next challenge.
