Huangshan (Yellow Mountain - R) in Anhui province

To the Chinese, a sunrise viewed from Huangshan is something they must do once in their lifetime.
Huangshan itself is not a single peaked mountain, rather it has about 180 peaks, half of which are accessible on foot through a series of steps carved into the mountains, of which there may be more than 60,000 throughout the area. The date at which work on the steps began is unknown, but they have been said to be over 1,500 years old.
