Sun? During sunrise? On Huangshan?
Why yes! I would love that.
We were partly fortunate enough to view the sunrise though not in its full glory as it weaved itself between fog, mist and clouds during the morning. However, trudging across to Lion Peak, we caught a glimpse of an open area where there were a lot less clouds and out peeped the sun!
For those who don’t know the rarity of seeing the sun on Huangshan - as an indication, Steven, one of the hostel owners in Tunxi’s Ying Qing Youth Hostel had previously worked as a tour guide and claimed that of the 70 times he had ascended the mountain, he had only seen the sunrise 5 times. Some people go an entire lifetime without seeing the sunrise atop Huangshan, but when you do.. Dear lord pray for your eyes because it is a sight to behold!
In the meantime, this view will do.
I’ll be back!
