These gravity defying Hanging monasteries cling to the side of Mountain Huashan in China and are only accessible through steep and dangerous paths. In Bhutan, the Taktshang Tiger’s Nest monastery clings to a cliff 2,300ft above the Paro Valley floor. According to legend, it takes its name from the ‘second Buddha’, Precious Guru Padmasambhava, who traveled to the site on a tiger. Some visitors have reportedly fallen to their death on the way up after apparently losing their footing. But the desire to build in such vertigo-inducing places isn’t just confined to Asia. Turkey has its own, the monastery of Sumela, perched at an altitude of 3,900ft.
