The world is so full of wonderful and beautiful places that most of us will never get to visit. Thank goodness for web sites like Listverse that make it possible for us to at least take a virtual trip to them!
Sanqingshan has been considered a sacred place. Used by Taoists for meditation, and believed to lead to immortality it’s easy to see why. Sanqingshan is shrouded in mists for 200 days of the year. The mist gives an otherworldly quality to the mountain, along with thousands of streams that pour into pools, granite formations that resemble silhouettes of humans and animals, and strangely shaped pine trees. The pools and vegetation create unique environments that lure many exotic and rare birds and animals to make their home there. Sanqingshan is home to about 2,500 plant species. This is one of the only places to find the plants that are used in making traditional Chinese medicines.
It really is breathtaking, isn't it? I can only imagine the sounds coming through the mists early in the morning!
Coffee on the patio this morning! How about some fresh sliced apples and cheese wedges on the side?
