I live on the bottom of this holy mountain and still haven't hiked it all the way up. Legend has it, anyone who does, will live 100 years... or you will become immortal... one of the two. So, watch out.
There's not much to say about it. I brought a ton of snacks and a ton of water, I hiked 5000 feet straight up into the sky. It was really cool to be able to ride a bike to the trailhead from my house. When I got back down, I just walked back home... very very slowly.
The long way up.
The river was all dry.
Everyone who goes through this gate is immortal.
Steps steps steps
All day steps
"North pointing rock" naturally just sits there like that.
The frost was really magical.
You can see the ocean, 250km away.
I took this photo in the beginning, not sure what I was getting myself into...
Magical frost at the summit
Archway made by rocks that fell down perfectly upon each other.
I'm coming down now!
Some of my favourite Chinese fruit snacks.
OMG soooooo sweaty...I sweated through three shirts and two pants, but I needed all the layers FOR SURE.
Everyone's exhausted at the top.
