    ... for religious artefacts and souvenirs. It was a very spiritual place surrounded by mountains. In fact Wutai Shan means "Five Terrace Mountain" and is names after the five highest peaks, all with flat tops, which surround the village and is one of the holiest sights in China. The temples are 'working' temples and all have resident clergy and many of the visitors were pilgrims who were thumbing rosaries and prostrating themselves as they climbed the temples staircases.

    The Hanging Temple - beautiful to look at, horrible to visit. I've definitely just had the lowest point of my trip! The number of people and cars waiting to go to the Hanging Temple was unbelievable. I have just stood in a queue for 21/2 hours and then slowly snaked my way around in single file being crushed, pushed, poked and photographed.

    There is nothing like being awoken by the Frosty the Snowman song (might I remind you it's August) and opera. The Frosty song is the song played by the garbage truck as it passes by on the road and opera was played by the street sweeper as it went by.

    ... hill that you weren't in surrounded by the honking horns of the city. It also provided us with some spectacular views of the surrounding area and all the temples. We decided to walk down the 1000 stairs back to the town. Along the way, we stopped at Shangshancai Temple. This was built somewhat into the rock with many prayer flags on the hill adjacent to the temple. After walking back through the markets where every stall sells ...

    Long Lines at the Hanging Monastery

    ... metres. Hanging to the cliff by using rocks, hidden supports and wooden structures, the temple worships Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism. It then took us a few hours to drive to Wutai Shan. The last part of the drive was through winding roads up the mountains. At points there were cows grazing beside the road and all over the mountains. Many of the mountains though were completely forest covered with coniferous trees. This is different from some ...
