I climbed up Tai Shan in the summer of 2007, along with thousands of Chinese pilgrims. The route to the summit of Jade Emperor Peak is lined with temples, little path side booths selling snacks and refreshments, and Chinese people wanting to take pictures with me.

Jade Emperor Peak on Mount Tai is the holiest of Taoist pilgrimage destinations in China. For over three thousand years Taoist pilgrims have journeyed up to this peak. Now thousands of Chinese visit Jade Emperor Peak daily, making Tai Shan the most climbed mountain in the world. There are 7,200 stairs that lead to the eastern summit, and there are many ancient temples to visit on this route. Mount Tai is a world heritage site and is the holiest of Taoism's Five Sacred Mountains.
