If you have ever seen a classical Chinese painting, it is likely that you have seen a depiction of Mount Huangshan. Made famous by the many poets and painters who favored it above all other mountains, Huangshan is a mystical experience even today.
Visitors to Huangshan can choose between a backbreaking climb up thousands of stairs or a quick cable car to the summit. In total, Huangshan has nearly 60,000 steps carved into the side of the mountain. Some of these steps are more than 1,500 years old.
