Sunset from Mount Qingcheng

NIKON D80, 62.0 mm, f/9.0, 1/800 sec, ISO 100 AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR CC-BY-NC-ND-4.0

Mount Qingcheng (青城山) is a sacred mountain - and so a popular tourist attraction - close to Chengdu, in China.

Instead of going to the much more crowded front mountain, we decided to go to the rear, wilder and less touristy back mountain. It was definitely worth it; this a view from close to the top, with the cable car pillar showing at the bottom left. ( No, we did not use it. )

It's not an easy climb, but all the Chinese girls were doing it in high heels - respect ladies.

Be prepared for extreme fatigue in your thighs just before reaching the top, but it was worth the pain.
