Aspirations to Huashan
I believe that there is a spiritual mountain, each one from birth to the formation of mountains dominated by spirituality. Spirituality selected the location of the mountain, spirituality created a mountain of pretty, spirituality also determine their ownership. Speaking of ownership, I am reminded of a lot of mountains, such as Mount Taishan, which inherently belong to emperors, and Huangshan, which belongs to literati born, and Everest, which belongs only to those who are born doomed explorers home. Today I want to mention is Huashan, because just coming down the Mountain, I realized that can not be simply put Huashan attribution to a particular class of persons - the Mountain ", Nishioka," determines that it belongs to him the title of emperor, that magnificent, extraordinary and Korea's scenery for the literati of the same dump. And its steep, extraordinary danger is attracting many explorers asked Laixun cliff wall. 51 holiday this year, I had the pleasure itself grouped these three people, boarded the Huashan is, indeed, a taste of some "strange insurance best in the world mountains," the beautiful scenery.
Bound train from Xi'an, Luoyang, we will feel the mountain's spirit: the train south, the endlessly rising peaks of Huashan group, the train north is the expanse of Fen-Wei River plain, and this rail line makes this strange mountains and plains are entirely different. It is this also clearly distinguished by adding to its stand, boast the world's supreme king gas. By the Huashan, Fu-majestic feeling has gone, followed by a disappointment, since he first entered Huashan Gate, can not see the paintings on the kind of publicity alone show a steep mountain scenery. Heard people say, Huashan Road length, will go 15 kilometers to reach the so-called risk-feng, Chi-Feng. Also heard people say that the first peak to reach the Mountain, which is the north peak, the earliest, more than three hours, which is just north peak only. Because there are five peaks of Hua Shan, the North Peak in the slightly lower peak (do not underestimate the slightly lower, there are more than 1.4 thousand meters do), there are three main peak, Dongfeng "sunrise" in order to view the sunrise and the famous Xiangyang, the South Peak "Winter" in order to top 2160 meters of its most famous, while the Xifeng "Lotus" depicts well-known odd dangerous, and Sanfeng Ding Zhi, like a lotus in full bloom, known as "outer sambong" ... ... these are the foot of the mountain that is, before climbing Huashan impressed me.
I have always regarded myself as one to appreciate nature, I know how carefully the dialogue with the Hill, Aura, how from the rocks, Greenfield, streams, birds in the integration into the mountains, it will take some time for tests and thorough physical and will be every corner of the mountain phase blend. Therefore, I decided to stay overnight in the mountains overnight, although I know it will mean a lot of hard work, but I also understand that the only way to give me a chance to can thoroughly read the mountain.
12:30 or so, I and my two companions to the foot of Yuquan Huashan Hospital, which is the first stop of Tang Hua Shan, as the first peak climbed the north peak to four hours, we did not delay too long in the Yuquan Hospital, direct Huashan went toward the door. The so-called Mountain Gate, Huashan Scenic Area should only be regarded as an entrance bar. In the crowded this mountain, the entrance seems to have lost its ancient symbol of quiet and narrow style, modern social civilization to break its traditional meaning and gives it a new location - wicket. Here, we have from the Mountain on the fringe of the five-ticket life insurance for the first time felt the stimulus will go to exploration in general. Gossip talk less, over the entrance, formally embarked on a hiking path. The start ramp-style mountain, step small, slope is not steep, but the surrounding rugged landscape not imaginary, so walked away, nor feel tedious, but that is OK in the mountains, lush forests, 1000 yue pleating streams for this long mountain road adds a lot of life. Along the way, also encountered a lot of tourists just down the hill, hidden in their heavy pace of a satisfactory smile, that is, the numerous pass by smile with us all the way no idle time, after five miles off , Shek Mun, Sha Luo Ping, Medicine King-dong, Mao F holes, to the Cloud Gate. After a Cloud Gate, they will feel the winding paths, and also highlights the distant mountains out. I clearly remember where they see the good in the distance was a high cloud shrouded peaks, tall and straight Qiao Li, it is the kind of "Who Sword sword, cutting out the peaks pointing to the sky" feeling, listen to people say that it is " Dongfeng wearing hats "(ie, the Peak has been mist-shrouded Higashimine) but Piaomiao the face of such lofty mountains, I passed a playmate was surprised with the eye, which was then lit with a smile, a confidence with each other because we know that we are going to Qianchi stone buildings of the pre-Rhodobryum roseum.
The so-called Rhodobryum roseum stone, that is the last time here, you can decide whether to continue your hiking trip, if you choose to continue, the mountain's insurance will have gush, including Qianchi blocks, hundred feet Gorge, ladder, tower ladder ... ... and embarked on this road, it is absolutely not allowed to go back to. If you choose to give up, you will continue along this flat mountain back. According to my observation, it seems no one in the Rhodobryum roseum stone former "Rhodobryum roseum." Because we all know that this is just climbing off the first step, the first step is to go well, after the way how to get it? And so on down the mountain, we recall that we traversed the mountain's an odd dangerous everywhere, but also a stark reminder of the last Higashimine and circumvent Huashan Road, walk down the mountain when the two choices, and we really feel it is only then Rhodobryum roseum is the real test, after test, followed, and also makes an unforgettable adventure experience of a lifetime, when the only way you can understand what call you have chosen Mountain, Huashan will choose your.
Tried before the mind Rhodobryum roseum stone in, we immediately faced the first challenge, which was also the first one gives us insight into the challenges of Huashan insurance - Qianchi buildings. It is overlooking the Huashan, Nishioka Wufeng and the black dragon ridge with an opt-in in 1990 Huashan, one of the four themes of stamps, we can see its meaning. Qianchi buildings, by definition, Qianchi step, it is direct attached cliffs of a narrow stage. It's dangerous, than the famous Mount Tai 18 more to insurance. Because it is only dangerous mountain first, so people who posted Qianchi particularly large number of buildings, two in a row, human foot head, from afar, dense, like countless ants gathered in a sprinkling of candied fruit on the ground the same. It is such a person would step on a person's feelings of the risk to lost - most of us get into the Qianchi buildings, looked down, a man pulling a good line is much better than long, people are looked up up squeeze, even if I was one false step would definitely be a crowd to push up the mountain, why is it that dangerous? Gap had the feeling of hundred feet is almost the case. Because many people, though on a calendar to the insurance, but not necessarily a bad thing, we believe that eventually there will be dangerous mountain peak are the minority of people, since we have the courage to themselves as the minority of people, there is a chance to exclusive joy of adventure , also have the opportunity to experience the infinite beauty that the dangerous mountain peak.
In this way non-stop walking with the crowd, we finally boarded at four o'clock in the afternoon, the North Peak - PTZ peak. On the north peak, the would be able to experience the mountain's spectacular, and the north peak is very narrow, and the Taoist temple at the foot jian remarkable nature's intricate art of architecture. When we looked around from the north peak, although there are higher mountains in the distant mist, but looked down the hill are still visible in the rocks and the green sea of clouds. At that time, the sky it began to rain, the sky gray cloth to make a cloud, that mountain is surprisingly hazy fog. At that time the north peak, poly filled with people waiting down the mountain, is said to have only a rope waiting in line for more than 3,000 people. Looking at the higher mountain and getting a big rain, we seem to have no choice but apart from continuing to climb, playmate of the phrase "Let's go!" Full of confidence and strength, we can put on a raincoat embarked towards the Dongfeng. Off the North Peak, were significantly fewer bells and whistles, the long Road is very difficult to see, because Golden Mountain for many people means only boarded the North Peak. Which, like those of us who decided to swim five peaks of the person who seems to be synonymous with young and vigorous and persistent. Off the North Peak, Hill also obviously a lot of risk because of light rain the road was slippery, which adds to the risk degree of the mountain. Ridge ladder side of the black dragon, was worried there is a lot to Khan. Ladder steps narrow, have soared feel fortunate that there are iron chain chain protection, where all the climbers who will firmly grasp the chains, sideways feet, gingerly climb. Of course, we are no exception, when will truly appreciate the "one step at a" feeling. However, such a ladder to climb is very exciting, the share of stimulation and heart rate have also resolved the fatigue and soreness, along the way, she does not feel tired. And you walk soryu Ridge, and then look at the foot of that ladder, you will long to sigh with relief, finally up, and mind to stay more with pride and self-confidence.
Dark days have gradually down from far and near, from the obvious darkening peaks, but also accompanied by light rain, wet fog and cold, as if urging us to accelerate the pace of nature, so we started looking for live-in place. After a black dragon back of the letter to Ridge and South Korea, do we reach the fifth Yunfeng. 10 minutes will be heard then taken to the jinsuoguan, where that is surrounded by climbing "outer Sanfeng" starting point. We decided to stay overnight one night in five Yunfeng revitalized spirit, the next day Dench Peak Range Rover. It is worth mentioning that the mountains do not have some flavor of live-is the. Where you will feel no place to spend money; between desperate fight will be more comfortable; would be unfair to all of the earth to be patient. It should be said that we are very lucky, at least in the wet, cold mountains to find a shop, sleep at night is also very fragrant, very warm. Compared to the many suffering from the outside, hard, we more fortunate. At night, the rain outside Xili bursts spread upstairs, built up into a cool night of rain, although this all covered up and moving sound of the pines, but also broke the quiet mysterious mountains, but it can in this altitude more than 1600 m sleeping a night on the mountain, that strange feeling we have enough life aftertaste.
At dawn, the rain has stopped, and we did not see the sunrise, but there was another round of harvest: a steep erosion Huashan After a night of rain, more refined the Qingli. Not to mention that streams live stream changed, and it raised the base fog clouds, trees, grass and that alone is enough to hang a raindrop rain make you feel fresh and ethereal. Then looked down from the five Yunfeng on the distance of the peaks and ridges, actually Yinyun regardless, see Cijing, before it ancients, "Yun-Shan," the beauty of the word used in conjunction. Miao Miao go, we do not have too much to enjoy, because we know that by Dongfeng, there will be a more magnificent spectacle waiting for us.
We began a little more than five to Higashimine Yunfeng backdrop safely, all the way a triumphant, almost did not stop once they reached Higashimine peak and see the "outer sambong" landmark - Gong-tower . Dongfeng Chaoyang, also known as peak, is the best place to view the sunrise. We see only the distance Higashimine hazy sea of clouds, a hint of blue will let people feel precious. If the thin clouds, and then some, even if only to reveal a little light, you will wait for them to extend the index finger, with "six pulse Sword" to stab a hole in it, so that large tracts of the sun through the hole, sprinkle in the mountains. In the Dongfeng, we encountered the first one can be called a Rhodobryum roseum place: two roads, one stone steps, and the other one is the iron railings along the cliffs Dongfeng, which is not the road, but steep Large stones, if there is no railing, I believe that no one would dare to go, but this fence is only attracted a small number of people in the past. Unsteadily over the hearts and minds across the advised us to "take the side of it, here too the risk." Happens playmate is a good adventure, and I in the face of "Cliff Rhodobryum roseum", she was still noticeable firm, "Walk the cliff" - we have grasped the iron railing.
This path were not a lot of front-line are less than 20, while the Mountain to them, of course, including our return is too rich and abundant. One of the rewards, large sea of clouds. Sometimes a gust of wind blowing, only went to the fog, green mountains and white clouds dotted the feeling will be clear, and clouds turned Feng Chung, Da-Qian weather. At that time, you really want to adopt a cloud put over our heads; or call in one breath, the clouds disperse; or whether, as an immortal in general, a pair of jump cloud, hovering hovering ... ... return of the two, the abyss. To grab the railing, looking down from the cliff at, to see just shrouded in fog, feel it is a boundless at the end of the abyss. Return of the three, adventure feeling. The air is fresh, the valley is deep, and feeling so excited, I really should bring all the flying, took a deep breath and shouted "I am king of the world".
Gone through a section of track, they feel the return to calm, Huashan highest peak - is also in sight of the South Peak. Looking south from the Dongfeng-feng, patches of pine trees make you feel easy to think of Huangshan, I have not been to Huangshan, Huangshan is, I want to like this bar! To the south peak of the road, there are several danger, such as "Yao Zi turned around", three were empty, only a thin chain with the gap 10 meters of the mountain stream is connected is said to be the most dangerous Huashan, but has long been closed. Unusually large in the sky overhead puts up strange, actually people do not know how to go. We did not delay at this time, embarked on a vertical peak.
Along the way there are songs, will not be tired, then there is no idle time on the south peak of Ben. South Peak is very top, scenery is still charming, but boarded the peak of feeling, not help people stretch of relief, suddenly mountain, ah, ah cloud, tree, ah, ah fog breath all together, only allows you to experience the quiet conquest of all satisfaction, experience their own greatness. Khan collected, gas levels, and lazy Jin also will come up, and then did not want to moving. Huashan very top of 2160.3 meters of the boundary marker stands in there, "Only in the last days, but no mountains and Qi" feeling enriched themselves, Well, then, be properly appreciate the moment.
After parting with South Peak attraction, we wish to work towards Xifeng, and this section of track is legendary, fog stone path in a stretch the sky, and a pedestrian does not, for the mountains adding to a lot of solitude, stone road, like Xuan-old from the lonely lonely in the future to stop queue. Walking on the stone stairs, the wind blowing, and his head and looking, the horizon is the meandering of the mountains, shrouded in clouds, sparse thin Cebu, had confused the mountain shadow and the sky color, erasing the boundaries of heaven and earth, but because it is windy, then again a clear boundary. In that misty fog, clouds, the wind, we head held high, Ting Zhaoxiong, hand inserted around his waist, eyes looking into the distance, toward Xifeng. Gone through the fog like a lotus flower also clear in Xifeng. Xifeng, also known as Lotus Peak, the mountain into pieces like the lotus petals as Dingli, the Qing Xiu Qi cut. I like the lotus, and therefore do not have favorite Xifeng. Another reason I love Xifeng, that is, where incense Pishanjiumu Office. Read the "Lotus Lantern" people will like incense, body odor can be tracing the origin of this myth is very fascinating, especially where I thought of my own mother, a very ordinary woman, but it is a great mother. Her name inside the "lotus", it is doomed like the lotus flower of my life reasons. (I can not forget the board due to find incense off hilltops at the time of the next mountain Tuiruan and Xin Chan, which determines the mountain after I left Tuiruan to bear the burden of multiple times, it was a heart episode.)
Down the Xifeng and it must come down, and the foot of the mountain peak is in the way to the Dongfeng has inadvertently passed, therefore, Huashan Wufeng, no, with the scholar's words are Nishioka Wufeng all our tour finished. I think this all, should be considered in the true sense when all the bar! Then looked at the time, is already more than ten, and the will loose traction out of stomach hunger, starvation and can not make the will stick to the downhill, we have to eat a meal memorable breakfast. Two people two bowls of millet gruel, and six tea eggs. Millet gruel boil very bad, there are peanuts inside, tea eggs, too, making it very够味. We sat on small stools, and slowly the taste, albeit live in poverty, but we are good enough to eat to saying endless. This situation, in the eyes rely on to secure a natural feel that is extremely simple rash, but I would think in such an atmosphere of crude to eat something more than eat chocolate, vegetable pie and the like to fight but also gratification precisely intended to of joy.
Approaching 11 o'clock, we started down the. Down the road less famous, but many of the landscape, especially the rain suddenly came to the mountains even more elegance. The mountain scenery is perhaps the most wonderful books-worn phrase inside the so-called "lingering spring rain," rain forest is a delight to the taste between unknowingly, without concentration, to search for. So that all the fresh rain forest, and it is more Chui pine, and it is more-yan of wildflowers. You deep breath, refreshing is transparent to the bottom of the foot! Light rain to make spring, waterfalls to life again, 1000 yue pleating and onto a mountain at the end; rain to make the mountains more hazy, and the rise of invisible peaks, bow can not see the valley, and only in the twilight to enjoy the life around them. Playmate at a stone bridge according to a photo, the background is the forest of a small mountain stream, streams due to erosion and erosion over the years springs, valleys, rocks within the confused and the springs will grasp the chance gurgling down, sometimes focused, sometimes scattered form a round after round of a small flow of water rain-phase makes the photo Hookah hazy, while the playmate was very Ching Chiu, nothing like the rain. Engage in a photography teacher went so far as that is backed by an artificial landscape, it is no wonder that this picture itself is a wonderful landscape do? The rain is getting up, "James inadequate clothing cherish and I hope no violation of hate", etc. wet clothes, enjoy the scenery, when most of the enthusiasm seems to have been washed, but increasingly large and no shortage of rain is a good thing, which seems has become for us to overcome fatigue and soreness, accelerating down the propellant. It is exactly because of this, we will soon be down to the North Peak. In the north peak, we again faced with a "Rhodobryum roseum." There are three down from the North Peak Road: one is the original mountain return, this road sure to be a pass; The second way is to take the rope down to the foot; third is the famous circumvent Huashan road by now. Down to the north peak, my legs shaking, heart is also buffeting, while shaking to the second road, while shaking to the third way, totally did not mind. At this point playmate's decision seems to be our decision, while this decision is - Circumvent Huashan Road.
Huashan road junctions in the Circumvent heard people say that this down to an hour, over and over again people say that it was the year the speed of the PLA. Many people listening to these words are in a sigh, we get relieved, and Who we are the People's Liberation Army does! So, an hour down the mountain has become our goal. Circumvent Huashan Road, indeed well-deserved reputation, its bias, its risk slightly better than the right way. The whole road three vertically hung like a stone staircase in the mountains, steep mountains, just like a knife cutting off half the ax Qi. We have hands clutching chains, bow under the body, walking sideways. Heavy rain on the stone stairs store of water, poured into the chain on a cold, people have suffered the pain of the dripping, but the thought is that we go to outmaneuver Huashan Road, hearts filled with the lofty challenge. Have gone through three ladder, the mountain relief of many, we are holding hands in a rhythm washed down the pace of non-stop. Are empty of tourists are in Qing Tan side of "young people, ah," while for us to give way, then forgot to forget the pain of acid at heart, there is only one faith, to go downhill as soon as possible! Lu is more gentle, and upward, and he has been able to see a ropeway. Ropeway forward winding, and sometimes appears to be mountain valley cut off, and sometimes butter, it has been engulfed clouds, but the winding paths they do not have heaven and earth. Have been able to see the end of the rope, and col is also noticeable out of the depths, it is a human with the hustle and bustle of downtown, is the legendary circumvent Huashan end of the road is critical, the mountain's foothills - Koho valley. Come, come, we have exhausted the last effort, and jumped forward to jumping down the mountain to fly, when the last step when you set foot on flat road, we have relentlessly torn edge of the rubble of the convenience of rain cover has softened umbrellas ... .... Time is 1:40, when the distance to the north peak 12:30 pushed back by 1 hour and 10 minutes.
Bus slowly left the Huashan, bound for the way to Huayin City road. I could not help but look back a bit again this Nishioka, postage stamps that have been overlooking the mountain's scenery can thoroughly cover of rain and fog to live, but the mountain's majesty even more obvious - Glen Insurance Road, Qifeng mountains, tall and straight spectacular , strange and beautiful variety. China in a magnificent rugged and is known for four years, I am fascinated in Luoyang of Shengji so I can thoroughly to be conquered. I am grateful for their efforts and adhere to thank playmate peer and understanding, thank the cooperation of nature and returns.
"The West Yuezheng Rong Zai Zhuang Ho, the Yellow River, such as silk to the horizon." I Qingyin for this quatrain, the dream again return to the Mountain.
