Yuntai Mountain

I’ve got plenty of pictures, so I’ll make this the first of two blog posts about Yuntai Mountain!

Our third stop in Henan was the famous Yuntai Mountain in Jiaozuo. It was one of the first parks to recieve the UNESCO title “World Geologic Park”,  and is famous for it’s big imposing mountains and different water sceneries. There are plenty of waterfalls here, as I have noticed that the Chinese are definitely awed by waterfalls (as a Norwegian I have seen plenty of those, so I wouldn’t say I was as awed as my fellow tourists there). 🙂 There are peaks and mountains as far as you can see (still, not something new for me), and Yuntai also houses the largest waterfall in China; the Yuntai Waterfall.

This is how the first entrance looks when you get there:

When you arrive, it will take about 30 mins in one of the local busses from the first entrance to the second.

The second entrance offers quite the spectacular view:

And then the trail starts… following a plank road built along one of the many cliffs you’ll find at Yuntai.

Below is one of the many reasons why we laughed a lot; the signs doesn’t always make sense here in China as they are mostly badly translated from Chinese to English 😛

Still, some of them are understandable, as seen below.
