Hue Shan

Our plan was to walk up the mountain at night to see sun rise at the top. Maybe due to my impatience to get going or maybe because we are so fit (maybe not) be climbed the almost endless steps and get to the East Peak by 1am (took 4 1/2 hours). So we had to wait a while for sunrise wearing shorts, t-shirt and think fleece. For once it was cold in china, perhaps due to the 2000m+ altitude and a slight wind.

At the summit of South Peak- the highest.

Jo, with view and some of the millions of padlocks and red ribbons left for good luck

The endless steps

Do you really need a sign to tell you this?


Note - no sunrise due to cloud :-(
