The best mountain in China: 13 generations of emperors once personally held a holiday known as "Emperor of Mountain".
China has many world famous hills and mountains. Since ancient times, we have felt a sense of reverence and admiration for mountains. Poets climb mountains to express their feelings, and emperors choose mountains to pray for their country. People who miss their hometown will also climb mountains to see their hometown in distance, express their thoughts and emotions, and miss their families.
We have many mountains in China. Each province has its own famous mountains, and each mountain also has many stories and strange texts that have been passed down from generation to generation. Some of these mountains are beautiful, some are tall and majestic, and some are especially steep and full of challenges. The most famous in China must be first of five sacred mountains.
Mount Tai is a high mountain. Mount Tai has rich vegetation, various outlandish stones and picturesque tourist sites with pavilions. The stones here come in a variety of shapes and shapes, and they provide unique landscapes from afar or up close. In addition, there are many plants and animals in mountains.
Because Mount Tai is relatively high, people can only climb a developed ladder, and there are many plants and animals in undeveloped places inside that have not been discovered by people. Therefore, everyone has a desire to study mystery of Mount Tai since ancient times.
In ancient times, people believed that high mountains are places close to heaven, and gods close to heaven can pray to heaven, so Mount Tai, as famous high mountain, deservedly became first choice of emperors praying to heaven about good weather and peace in country.
Everyone knows that whenever you mention mountains, you always think of Five Sacred Mountains. The Five Sacred Mountains are five most famous peaks in China. In ancient times, people believed that Mount Tai was head of Five Sacred Mountains. . At top of Mount Tai, there is a head with large letters that says that five mountains are only ones. It is written in traditional characters, which also proves long history of Huashan.
It was also revered as noblest mountain among Five Mountains a long time ago. In addition, there are several small characters on this large stone that hold their heads high above sky, which means that you can see Jiutianyunwai directly when you raise your head. This means that height of Mount Tai can directly reach Heavenly Palace in sky.
The popularity of Mount Tai is well known in China, it is not only most famous of all known mountains, but also noblest. This is a famous mountain that people have a lot of respect for when they have water.
China has a very long history, feudal dynasties have existed for a long time, and there are many dynasties in history. It took hundreds of years from state of Qin Qin Shihuang to whole feudal dynasty of Qing Dynasty. In such a long time, more than a dozen emperors decided to go to Huashan to bow to sky.
People who have climbed other mountains of China's Five Sacred Mountains mostly go to Mount Tai to see sunrise. When you arrive in Tai'an, Shandong Province, you can take high-speed rail directly to Mount Tai. If you want to climb Mount Tai, many people prefer to climb at night. From this Tianwei village, it's easier to climb to top of mountain, which can save some energy.
Climb Mount Tai at night because there aren't many street lights on Mount Tai, so it's relatively dark. If you want to climb, it's hard to see surrounding scenery clearly. You can see lights one by one. who are other tourists. Bring a flashlight or a kiosk next to road.
When you hold a small flashlight bought in a tourist place, you will miss extra LED flashlights at home, because flashlights you buy there are very cheap, but quality is not particularly good, and light is not particularly bright. Therefore, when crawling at night, if light is not very good, you need to pay attention to safety.
Climbing Mount Tai at night, although you can't see surrounding scenery, you can hear clear sound of water droplets dripping on stone slabs, and sound of water flow is especially clear. Sounds very comfortable and seems very quiet. On way to top of mountain, most difficult and tiring section of road.
The steepest section of road is Eighteen Devil's Plates, where not only trekking poles are used, but also arms and legs. What makes people fall is not just physical exhaustion, but going to grocery store after 18 meals to replenish their physical strength.
At entrance to store, I saw a sign reminding me that there are 18 dishes, and if you go up, it will be higher and cooler, everyone should work hard.
Besides, I want to remind everyone that mineral water here is sold for 8 yuan per bottle. Don't think it's expensive, because all these materials are collected by mining workers coming from foot of mountain and carried on poles. We ordinary people get very tired just climbing to top of mountain alone, not to mention fact that they have to carry such heavy things.
We all know that Mount Tai has been refurbished countless times as a tourist attraction, with increased security measures and repairs to easier routes and stairs. I don't know how ancient emperors climbed it.
But almost all emperors in feudal history of our China were relatively worthy emperors. They all admired Mount Tai immensely and mostly practiced it personally, climbing Mount Tai to perform Zen anchoring ceremony.
