Stairway to heaven

This famous mountain range features plenty of steep granite peaks and temples nestled in the landlocked Chinese province of Anhui. And thanks to the Tang Dynasty, stone pathways and bridges were initially built around the 8th century to help visitors access a variety of its breathtaking views of precariously positioned pine trees and unique cliffs. Countless traditional poems and ink paintings have been created in appreciation of this location, which was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1990.
