Mount Tai (Tàishān) Review

Reaching 5,067 feet above sea level, Mount Tai is the most venerated of the five sacred mountains of China. If you are keen to reach a ripe old age, legend has it that climbing Mount Tai means you'll live to 100. It is possible to climb the steps to the summit and back down in a day, but spending the night on the mountain is also an option. The classic photo—sunrise over the cloud-hugged peaks—is actually a rare sight because of the mist.
