DanXia – Part 2@ Sunrise on Elder Peak

Watching sunrise at DanXia is the very choice of most tourists. The best spot to see sunrise is the Elder Peak. Elder Peak is another high mountain in Mountain DanXia area. And for it’s height and direction, people can enjoy the most beautiful sunrise there. But in the other hand, to climb Elder Peak at the very early morning is also a big challenge for them.

DSC04302The original plan is to get up at 4 o’clock and spend an hour for climbing then arrived the Sunrise Seeing Pavilion to watching the sunrise. But thanks to Galacy’s graceful dance movement, we have to take plan B to go to there… 😐 So if you wanna go to climb Elder Peak, don’t be as drumble as Galacy. Anyway, we arrived the top of Elder peak much more earlier, and saw many tourist already waiting here. Watching a sunrise is such like playing a gamble, you never know that the sunrise would as perfect as a pan-fry egg. And maybe we need more luck this time, the sun hided behind the cloud shamefacedly as a maiden. The “sunrise watchers” didn’t want to give up after they spent an hour climbing(and we two didn’t want to waste our telpher tickets 👿 ), most of people waited and waited for almost another hour there.

And finally 😀 :

From here, we can see not only the sunrise, but also the beautiful scenery of Danxia landform area.

We went down from the top of the peak and found many other scenic spots.

A thread Sky?

After a very long long walk, we finally found the “female stone”, opposite of the male stone at Yangyuan Peak, but in a smaller size. Still have on comment about it…..

A very funny refrigerator~

The old geo Park gate:

Finally and then, our journey ended and we hardly can’t brought the train tickets to go back to Canton 😯 Anyway, it was a very good experience for us~
