    Wow! I clicked on the link. Amazing. Just the thought of them making it! And why would they go through so much work to do it? It must have had a meaning once. More than what's at the end now.

    Well, they wrote it was a taoist temple before becoming a tea house. So I suppose in the past it was a kind of pilgrimage...

    The pilgrims must have been pretty disappointed to go all that way, only to find a teahouse where the temple used to be.

    It's not the destination, it's the journey.

    This should be at the BOTTOM of anyone's bucket list, if you get my drift. ;)

    Also, I wonder how many people die each year trying to climb up there. :nailbiting:

    And I wonder how the tea house gets its supplies in tea and water - any tea plantations up there? A spring on top of the mountain? How do they heat the water - I suppose there won't be any electricity? If they do it the old fashioned way , i.e. a kettle on a fire, they also have to transport some kind of fuel up there...
    And the idea of transporting any kind of stuff up there makes it even scarier!

    I'd do it only if they serve beer at the top!
