Mount Taishan

on May 27, 2014


Scan - Version 3This spectacular card comes from Bee in China and show Mount Taishan, which I am ashamed to admit I had not even heard of – which is why postcrossing is so great! The mountain was first inhabited during the Neolithic times and for the last 3000 years has been worshipped as a sacred spot, with countless local myths, legends and histories occurring there. In case you were wondering, there are about 6000 steps (carved from granite) if you fancy walking to the top! Amazing! And totally beautiful!
