This is the view from my hotel room in the early hours of the morning, cold and misty, I should be snuggling under the quilt instead of snapping shots pressed against the freezing window.
Despite the misty morning, look at what a beautiful day it is, cloud-covered peaks and clear blue waters stretching into the yonder! Definitely worth getting out of bed for!
Tiers of limestone pools, one above the other, stacked in random yet creating beauty amidst its curvy lines.
This is part of Pearl Shoal Lake, and as the waters flow through the rocky surface, rivulets of water skip along the surface creating the impression of little pearls jumping up from the water, hence the name above. Click for an enlarged photo and hopefully you will see the 'pearly' impression created by nature.
The 'pearl' rivulets eventually find their way down the Zhenzhutan Pubu (Pearl Shoal Waterfall) - whoosh, whoosh, whoosh!
In the middle of a lake, a gnarled tree grows bent in a full bow as if paying homage to the lake that is its home.
Bare rocks under gentle moving waters draws the eye, look too long and you might start getting dizzy!
And finally, the journey to these sights involve 28 fairly hair-raising turns up the mountain, a section of which is shown below - thin air and going round and round a mountain can only mean a headache coming on.....
