Bridge of the Immortals

So the picture that brought us to the Huangshan Mountains was of the Bridge of the Immortals. This area of the park is more secluded and we would spend hours hiking without running into anyone.

Getting closer!

We made it! This is an amazing bridge strung between two jagged granite peaks with more than 1000 meters of air beneath. It was a bit unnerving. If we looked down too long we got a bit dizzy.

From the lookout point at the Bridge of Immortals we found a rock hut built by monks that lived in the area. It is a small shrine/praying area for the former residents of the mountains.
