China Diary Part 5: Two days on the Yellow Mountain
There are few occasions where I might say, the weather is too beautiful. Climbing in Huangshan, the Yellow Mountain, we had sunshine and blue skies, missing what is locally called the “sea of clouds” around the iconic jagged peaks, which gives the illusion that the rocks are floating in the heavens.
Stone steps are carved throughout the mountains, allowing the thousands of visitors access to the peaks. Move over, “Thousand Steps” in the Dandenong Ranges – we have been hobbling for days as a result of our descent of the Huangshan ranges. Check out the epic steep climbs visible in many of the photos below.
