Sanqing Shan (8)

When we hiked up near the summit of the mountain, the sky become darkened.

Dark and thick mist came upon us. There were two roars of thunders too.

It looked as if we have disturbed the peace of the mountains and they are showing their wrath.DSCF0967

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.

Mount Sanqing has been classified as a national park of China. It is a famous honeypot as well as a shelter for animals and plants. It contains more than 2300 species of plants and 400 species of vertebrates. The total area of Mount Sanqing is 229 km. It became a National Geopark in 2005 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008.

Herewith a picture showing the suspended boardwalk on which I hiked to the summit.
