There was a saying that people longed to see the true face of Lushan. We saw it. But it begs the question of whether it’s better to see Lushan in a veil or to see it in its bare face.
We hit one of those 175 days when the mountain is not covered in mist or clouds.
But I have to say that we were lucky we didn’t hit any collapsed bridges, crashed road accidents nor encounter any collapsed buildings. We only hit a collapsed highway which our tour operator bypassed by looping around Zhejiang, the neighbouring province, when we had to see San Qing Shan in Jiangxi, the province we were visiting.
Enjoy this bare face of Lushan in the Jiangxi province.
