Did not do enough homework to realize how challenge and somewhat dangerous this hiking is. It is an ultimate hiking especially with strong wind. Tian Du Feng is due to close for five years after Dec. 1. Took us almost 2 hours to complete the...More

The climb is hard but the hardest is that each climb is on steep dangerous rocks. For the brave heart, there is many climbs on edge. Strong wind

You can see it from Yu-Ping-Lou. Second highest peak of Huangshan. High stepped cliffs. Roads get slippery in rain.
