All those fantastically cinematic and outrageously mesmerizing theatrical portrayal of an old, magical world ruled by huge flying creatures and heroic gods and goddesses? I found it in heavenly Huang Shan.
The clouds rule here, its summit a good 24-hour climb one way…with minimal stopovers. But you must stop, please—to take it all in and then capture each impossibly awe-inspiring image in your memory.
Or miss out on those cascading rocky mountains and ever-changing cloud formations where unforgettable kung-fu movies of Chinese dynastic lore and legends come to life before your eyes. It’s not difficult to imagine for a monstrous dragon to live in one of these mountains, or for one of the goddesses to lure you into one of its precarious cliffs or to hold you forever spellbound.
