Breathtaking summits

LINK TO THE ITINERARY

Today we see since weeks for the first time sun again and the tops of the mountain Huashan are released by the thick smog of the past days. The mountain massif Huashan whit up to 2.155-m-high summits, belongs to the five Daoism mountains of China. Majestically and respect giving they rise in the grey-blue sky and are an invincible barrier to the city of Huayin in the south. Because the air pollution in the valley is still substantial, we have decided to take the new cable railway on the highest mountain, to undertake there on top a round wandering to five summits and to descend then on the other side. We are excited because the Huashan-Trail belongs to the most dangerous footpaths of the world, but because of his incredible beauty, the captivating views over massive square rock summits and the cloisters, pagodas, temples, bridges and gates it is breathtaking nice.
