Just an hour or two outside of the city of Shangrao the city falls away and the mountain rise up. We took an enclosed gondola-- a rather high tech one that I imagine would be right at home in Switzerland-- far up into the peaks where the clouds are. An elaborate system of paved walking trails clings to the cliffs on the mountain sides, going on for miles and miles. Pictures can only hardly do it justice. It was really striking. Like living inside a Chinese water color painting!
