These are a kind of orchid with long pistils. These light purple flowers and white flowers blossomed all around the mountains. So I could smell light fragrances while I was climbing the mountain.
If it had been a sunny day, I would have seen remote villages and farm fields. But I could see the mountains in front of me, opening their arms.
This is one of many temples located in Jia Wutai Mountain.
Zhongnan Mountain has been the paradise of eremites since 1500 years ago; nowadays they are still here, living in South Wutai, Jia Wutai, Cuihuashan, Guifeng, Louguantai……
When I approached the gate, I was astonished. The five steps leading to the gate did not have a railing, and there was a cliff with a long narrow path made of stone tablets with one side of the tablets stuck in the mountain side and the other side of the tablets was open, without any iron chain. I decided to give up and sit in the yard of temple to wait for my friends.
Thanks to my friend who returned and persuaded me to keep walking, because there was splendid scenery ahead. I breathed deeply as I walked along the horrible stone path, holding his hand and keeping my eyes on his feet. Then, I saw a sharp chine of the mountain.
I had to walk along the chine; it was called the chine of the dragon. Thanks again to my friend's hand.
Looking backwards towards the temple, most of the chine was covered by bushes in front of me. I was so glad that I could take this photo and I was still alive.
Junior Huashan Mountain deserves its reputation as a steep and beautiful mountain.
Sitting on the top of the mountain, the head of the dragon, I saw there was a house located in the opposite mountain. His owner, I wondered, must be a swordsman or a poet.
