Huangshan is an iconic Chinese distination fabled to have inspired poets and artist alike. Having been before, I knew why and was thus excited to show it to 2 of my closest friends. Seeped in mist, the peaks on Mt. Huang rises above the clouds like floating castles. In moments of brief clarity and absolute silence, it is easy to forget that this place even exist in a nation that houses millions. What is surprising is that this mountain use to be relatively secluded but in the last 20 years, hotels have sprune up, cable-cars carry the elderly, wooden steps align cement walkways, and a town has sprune up at the foot filled with peddlers and businessmen.
My friends and I only had one day so we slepted at the foot of the mountain and took the earliest cable-car up the next day. 7 hours later, we finished hiking thousands of steps to 5 peaks and the fairlyland bridge. Not bad for a day's work and hungry souls :)
