This will be the final post on my visit to Huashan late last year. I’ve taken an embarrassingly long time to write and put up photos about it, so I’m finally done. I’ve still got my Luoyang and Shaolin Temple writeups to do, so those will come later. All these photos were taken on the second day I was on Huashan, and the sky really was that blue and clear.
The view from North Peak, the lowest of Huashan’s five peaks.
I never knew bare rock could look so good – neighboring mountains from South Peak.
On Cangling Ling (Green Dragon Ridge). See all the laborers along the left? One of them is carrying a door!
The cable car was in operation bright and early at 8.15 in the morning.
“Mountain” of lucky locks. The red ribbons have messages about good fortune about different things like love or work.
A look outside soon after sunrise, taken from my hotel.
On the not-so-scenic Central Peak, which lies below and between South and East Peak.
Three paths, three varying degrees of difficulty. I chose the middle one.
A hermit cave, dating back over 800 years ago.
Strays or employees’ pets, I’m not sure how these cats were here, but it was a cute sight.
Walking down from Central Peak to South Peak, where the buildings are in the distance.
