Huashan Teahouse Hike … Not Your Average Stroll in the Park

A friend emailed me these pictures of the hiking route up to the Huashan Teahouse in China. It’s your typical viral-entertainment email … but the pics tell a pretty cool story and I like hiking and other mountain sports so check this out …

1. First, you’ve got to get to where you’re going. Pretty cool, and yes, I’m one of those people that jumps up and down on trams …

2. Next, walk the plank. Luckily there are some chains anchored to the wall for you to hang on to … so it’s not scary at all …

3. Er, no special equipment needed. Just jeans and a t-shirt. Oh, and a hat to keep the sun off your noggin (wouldn’t want to get heat stroke and do anything crazy) …

4. Keep going …

6. Stop for a second and enjoy the view … and the climbing technolgy that’s almost as old as the hills …

7. Of course there are a few steep parts …

8. Ah, the home stretch …

So the obvious question is …

How good is the tea?
