The following photos are from Mount Tai Shan in Shandong Province of China. It is the holiest of all mountains in the country and pilgrims have been climbing up its slopes for over three thousand years. I took my pilgrimage in 2007, and climbed the mountain with thousands of Chinese people.

Mount Tai Shan is in northeastern China in Shandong province. It is 1545 meters high and occupies an area of 426 kilometers. The climb to Jade Emperor peak at the summit of the mountain takes a few hours from the bottom. Most tourist take shuttle buses two thirds of the way up the mountain, and only walk the most vertical stretch to the top. The nearest town to the main trailhead is called Tai'an, and there are plenty of hotels and restaurants there to sleep and dine in.
