Penne 4 Your Thoughts

On top of the world in Huang Shan, China

Huang Shan 黄山

You know those Chinese brush paintings portraying jagged peaks wreathed in mist? I always thought that the painters had a powerful imagination until I discovered the source of their inspiration – Huang Shan. Literally translated as “Yellow Mountain”, this Unesco World Heritage Site is easily accessible via an overnight train from Shanghai. To really soak in the beauty of the mountains and to cover all the walking trails, visitors should spend at least 2 nights on the mountain, preferably one at the “front” of the mountain and the other at the “back” for best access to all the hiking trails. You do have to be reasonably fit to enjoy the mountain, so do spend some time training before you hit the mountain!
