This Is What Walking Up 6,600 Steps Does To You


Hikers attempting to reach the peak of China’s Mount Tai may find themselves facing an uphill battle of a different kind — a battle against wobbly legs and unsteady feet. A video has captured the comedic spectacle of adventurers struggling to maintain their balance as they ascended the ancient steps of the mountain, leaving many crawling, crying, comforted by fellow hikers, and even carried to safety on stretchers. Mount Tai, located in Shandong Province, is renowned for its awe-inspiring beauty and historical significance. Climbing its 6,600 stone steps takes anywhere from 4 to 6 hours, testing the physical limits of even the best climbers.
