Tai Shan Local Customs: 2 reviews and 7 photos


I remember watching Michael Palin visit Tai Shan during his Full Circle travel series where he was in complete owe of these guys carrying all kinds of things across their backs up the mountain. It's bad enough climbing up carrying just a small day-pack but just imagine what it must be like for these guys. They must be very fit and I hope they're well paid for they're services. Just made me feel tied and inadequate just watching them!
