No pain, no view

Pain

Of course you had a climb up to get to the view.

Looking up at the temple from the shuttle drop off point.

Yishan is an interesting place. It is not as famous or tall as Taishan, but it was important in the traditional worship and the emperors did come here for some rites. It is known as “little Taishan”. Fortunately the climb was not as intimidating either.

We were really fortunate because we caught a re-enactment of one of the imperial rites at Dongzhen at the base of the mountain when we came back down.

It was interesting to see how the things we see were used.
