Huashan Mountain, East Peak

Rem Sapozhnikov / April 2014
From the South Peak I went to the East Peak. Along the way I glanced to a place where the trail "Heavenly Stairs" begins. Russian tourists call it "Trail of death".

The mountain is wrapped in a blanket of silver snow.
Golden Heaven Palace (金天宫 - Jīntiāngōng).
View towards the East Peak.
Same place, but a picture is made with a zoom lens.
Stone stairs on the ridge leading to the East Peak.
Here begins the trail "Heavenly Stairs" (长空栈道 - chángkōng zhàndào).
Turned out that one bottle of water was not enough for a walk through the Huashan Mountain. I had to buy more water on the way at a price of 3.5 times higher than in the mountain foot. Water, noodles and other snacks to the feed points are delivered by such porters.
The Chess Pavilion (下棋亭 - Xiàqítíng).
It's too crowded on the East Peak.
East Peak another name is Facing Sun Peak, because this is best place to admire sunrise in Huashan.
I think that in the head of this Chinese man flashed next thoughts: "So much studied, worked, and everything may go down the drain because of a stupid kinda cool photo".
Too many people. Don't repeat my mistake, don't come here on weekends. Time to go to the North Peak and then descend from the Huashan Mountain.
