Huangshan 黃山: Majestic and Grand

Perhaps the favourite stop on this tour for my sister and I was Huangshan. It is truly one of those places that you would not believe until you saw it for yourself – if even then. We were lucky enough to be there on a good day, though we would have been even more blessed if we could have seen the sea of clouds that occasionally covers the mountains. We are determined to return one day to stay at the hotel on top of the mountain to catch the sunrise and sunset.

During our way up the mountain, we would see these men carrying huge loads on their shoulders. According to our local tour guide, these men carry everything up the mountain. All the restaurants, stores, and hotels on the mountain got their supplies in this way. Despite the technology that exists, these men continue this way of making a living to keep the spirit of Huangshan and their way of life since they’ve been living in this area.
