Seeing the Mt. Huangshan
If someone offered to pay all my expenses for a long holiday, I would feel very surprised and very excited. It would be difficult to decide where I wanted to go. I think I decided to the Huangshan by bus with our colleagues. It is said the Mountains of Huangshan is a resort. It’s best known for its pines, rocks, clouds, and springs.
If I went to the Huangshan, I would stay there for about three days. I am sure it would be very interesting to visit the Mt. Huangshan which is so very different from my town. Before I went, I would write to my classmate of college who live there. I would suggest that if it were possible, she should spend two day with me visiting the Huangshan. I would really like to find out how the local people live in the Huangshan today.
If I went to the Huangshan, I expect I would start by visiting the Tiangdu peak. I have heard that scenic spot is a very exciting place. I imagine that there are lots of tourist attractions, the rocks are spectacular and the clouds are very varied.
After I had visited the Tiangdu scenic spot, I would climb the lotus peak. There are three things I would like to do there. First, I hope I could stay on the mountain for a night because I would like to watch the sunrise. Next, I would like to visit its pines and rocks. I imagine legendary pines grown on rocks. It’s quite special different from other mountains. It would stretch their arms to warmly welcome their guests coming from all over the world. Oddly-shaped rocks are piled on top of one another, look likes Monkey，squirrel... Finally, I would like to see the sea of clouds that it is one of the four wonders. I heard that when you stand above the sea of clouds, it feels like you’re flying in the sky. It is wonderful look at all the fog and clouds. Of course, I would like to see the cliff-side waterfalls in the valley by the way.
Xi XiaKe, the famous geographer in the Ming Dynasty highly praised the Huangshan as the best mountain in china， “No more mountains are needed to be visited as long as you have mounted the Huangshan”.
For the rest of my holiday, I would like to swim in the hot springs, or lie on the beach and get a suntan. I also go for long walks with my friends in the evening.
If someone offered me this money, I would be amazed. All I have to do is dream...
