黄山 – Yellow Mountain

We are away for a few days, and we decided to visit Huang Shan – or Yellow Mountain. We went up the cable car, walked around for a bit and then came back down again. We then got a bus to the “hot springs”, where we then walked up loads of steps to another cable car. We got on, went up, enjoyed the view and then went back down again as it was quite busy. View was very nice:

UNESCO on the subject:
Huangshan, known as ‘the loveliest mountain of China’, has been acclaimed in art and literature for much of Chinese history. Today it holds the same fascination for those who come on a pilgrimage to the mountain, which is renowned for its magnificent scenery made up of many granite peaks and strangely shaped rocks emerging out of a sea of clouds. It presents a beautiful spectacle, with ridges, gorges, forests, lakes and waterfalls. Many of the lakes having clear blue, turquoise or green waters, while in autumn many of the leaves turn a range of rich colours. The site supports a high diversity of plant and animal species, including some that are threatened. A number of trees are celebrated on account of their age, grotesque shape or precipitously perched position, including 1,000-year-old specimens of Huangshan pine, ginkgo and alpine juniper.
