The bed is very hard in the dorms. About 2 inches of padding. The hike to the Bright Summit in the morning takes about 45 minutes. From the eastern cable car (Cloud Valley) it is a 2 hour hike. Decent restaruant but again ve4ry expensive for china.

Today I finally went to the Huangshan Mountains (Shan=Mountain in Chinese). I departed from the hostel together with some other Chinese tourists and two French tourists. We took the first bus from the hostel to Tangkou, from there we had to take another bus in order to go to the cablecare which would take us up.

Anhui had loadsa bamboo, a mystical mountain and a couple of ancient villages to explore. It was great but very wet.
Our first day there ...
It's not too early a start to the day which is great and as I get ready for the tour I find out that that I won't be the only non Chinese person on it which is different. I meet a guy called Gilles from Amsterdam and a lady called Aofie from Ireland. We're all very excited especially the other two as they've been stuck in the town for 2 days waiting for the weather to clear so that they could hike ...
... to an English breakfast, mmm first time in what seems like months, just what I needed on a wet and rainy day. I spend an hour in the reception area eating and chatting to the other people before I finish packing and head out to the bus that will take me to the main long distance bus station. The English guy, who I find out is called Tom, kindly lends me his umbrella and walks me to the bus stop, which is funny as he starts telling me stories about his Korean ...
