Sanqing Shan (6)

For the benefit of those who are unfamiliar with Sanqing Shan ( Mountain), here is an introduction   from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Mount Sanqing三清山) is a renowned Taoist sacred mountain located 25 miles (40 km) north of Yushan County in JianXi Province, China with outstanding scenery. Sanqing means the “Three Pure Ones” in Chinese as Mount Sanqing is made up of three main summits: Yujing, Yushui, and Yuhua, representing the Taoist trinity.

A Chinese phrase “三峰峻拔、如三清列坐其巅” (“Three steep peaks, like the Three Pure Ones sit the summits”) explains why it was named San Qing. Amongst the three hills, the Yujing hill (1817 meters above sea level) is the highest.DSCF0907
