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”.

My Second Day on Mount Huangshan (2)

After a simple Chinese lunch at Cloud Disppelling Hotel, we started our 3km hike up to the Bright Summit (光明顶), the second highest peak in Hangshan, 1860 meters in altitude and our hotel – Baiyun Hotel tonight was just below the most famous peak in Huangshan.

Later this 3km walk turned out to be the most difficult in our two day trip in Huangshan. It took us over three hours walkng from Cloud Dispelling Hotel to Beiyun Hotel by climbing over the Bright Summit.

Most of the three hours found us clambering up and up, and some of the sections were very steep and treacherous. We were out of breath and pooped.

Very often we had to stop for a short break and then continued to hike. It was worth having the 3-hour hike, which was an eye-opener, offering us more chances to appreciate the natural wonders in Huangshan – Oddly-shaped Pines, Bizarre Rocks and The sea of Clouds.

My 3th Day on Mount Huangshan

Today, October 11, 2010 is a heavy foggy and drizzle day on the top of Mount Huangshan. We start at 8:0am from Baiyun Hotel for White Gooose Cable Car Station and descend the Mount Huangshan.

People slowly walk on the stone stair steps up and down. In the past two days, these stone steps has allowed us to have extensive views of the oddly-shaped pine trees, Weird Rocks, Sea of Clouds…

So, the stone steps has offered us the ability to hike the steep mountains and look for outstanding scenery and a rugged mountain walking adventure, combining hiking experience with a real physical challenge.

We are not disappointed by the foggy day, since in the past two fine days we have visited the major attractions on the top of Mt. Huangshan under the cear sky.

On the contrary, we are all delighted to see Mt.Huangshan in heavy fog as if we are melting in the imaginary heaven with low visibility. It is a unique experience hiking on the Huangshan Mountain in a heavy fog.

2km Walk from Beiyun Hotel to Yungu New Cable Car Station

We are now starting the foggy walking up and down to the Yungun New Cable car Station.

The porter is following us carrying 4 suitcases. A suitcase is charged at the cost of RMB 100 carrying from Beiyun Hotel to New Yungu Cable Car Station.
We have to climb over the Bright Summit again.
On the way, we meet lot of hikers in defiance of the foggy and drizzle day.
