  • Who has known the mountain of Montserrat in Catalonia and have the opportunity to visit Huangshan, you will see that our beloved mountain of Montserrat is like a grain of sand compared to this. Huge, grandiose, spectacular peaks above the clouds, all complimented (of course!) by hordes of Chinese wandering from one side to another giving voices. You can be here several days and make the various routes that there is, to which more interesting. That take a good supply of water and food because there it is very expensive.

  • The scenery, the engineering of steps on the side of mountains, the number of large hotels built on these peaks are all awe inspiring. 
  • Assemble on the cable car, a cabin for the three of us, and let us go up to 1000 metres immersed in a dense white haze. But it stopped raining. One hundred meters from the arrival we leave the bottom layer of clouds and the outlines of the mountains all around we suddenly appear with their magic. The mount HuangShan, one of the most famous and iconic of China, have been declared world heritage sites and boast three characteristics that make them unique. First are of granite, which in ice age was excavated and crushed by glaciers that flowed downstream, creating spires, pinpinnacoli and many fancy shapes. In its crevices, slow as a bonsai, grows a pine special, also called Huangshan, which leaves shape by the wind and elements in various shapes, remaining clinging to the rock from which maybe leaves horizontally defying gravity. Finally, being the rainy region, after the rain the sea of clouds, a white ocean from which they leave only the tops with amazing effects poetry. Pictures of yellow mountain were painted by Chinese artists over the centuries that have immortalized on rolls of rice paper with china ink signs and patients. Legend has it that on these mountains were home the legendary Huang Ti, the Chinese recognize the founder of their lineage, called the closure of the Yellow Emperor, who tried for a long time and found the recipe for immortality that still hovers. As usual, I did not see it. In his honor, however monti, called Yhian, in the ninth century it changed its name in Huangshan. Few are the Chinese who don't go there at least once in their lifetime, if they can, clambering for the countless routes in steps carved into the granite. And we were ready to do so. At midday the Sun is out and the magic was complete. A quick meal and then again for jumps and cliffs. At the end of the day my iPhone I said ten kilometers of Rails and over 2200 steps climbed and descended. But those who watch my while simple photos can not see and imagine the magic, the charm, the poetry of this place that certainly doesn't do nor forget or confuse. So tired, we're sleeping in the usual comfortable hotel, brand new, a thousand meters high.
