... the very steep stairs are places where locals sell refreshments, fruit, snacks, cucumbers and the like. What I find distressing to watch, is how all food and drinks are carried up these steep steps by human porters. With a bamboo pole over their neck they carry weights of 70 or 80 kilo - considerably more than their own body weight.

Not for the faint hearted! The whole region is filled with flat-top pine trees hanging off sheer granite peaks surrounded in a cloudy haze. It's not as high as Emei Shan and thus not above the clouds, but the mountain range views disappear to the horizon in all ...
