My Second Day on Mount Huangshan (1)

See the First Light of the Morning (Dawn)

The sunrise time for today was 6:05am. I set my morning call at 5:20am. After simple washing and putting on the winter jacket, I went down to the hotel lobby, finding many  tenants like me hurrying out to see the first light of the morning at Dawn Pavilion, the best point to view the dawn and twilight in Huangshan.

It was still dark outside. Some people climbed up to the Dawn Pavilion by using flashlights. Hiking for about 500 meters, we got to the Dawn Pavilion to the north of our Beihai Hotel. We were lucky to catch the dawn and twilight just in time, but a little disappointed that the sunrise was blocked the Beginning-to-believe Peak to our east. Maybe that’s why it is called “Dawn Pavilion” instead of “Sunrise Pavilion”.
