mt hua, climb in china

Forget hiking the Appalachian Trail, the path up Mount Hua should get your heart rate up and provide all the exercise you’ll ever need

Haha...I did this last year, the first picture of the guy in the orange shirt (in your link) is one of the guys I went with. Here's some of me from the same day.

You can actually catch a cable car up the mountain and then walk to the peaks. But we walked from the bottom, which was better (buy extremely hot) because you get to climb the insanely vertical stairs and see the views more.

Here is the blog post from my English friend http://taiwandiscovery.wordpress.com/20 ... -the-world
