On the second day in Dehua, we were offered a trip up to their beautiful waterfall on the mountain top. I was very excited about it as I like to see nature stuff. So I didn't hesitate to join. Some tired members didn't want to go will stay in the hotel.
Our coach drive is a god. He drove up the rocky and treacherous mountain road all the way up the mountain. There was no barrier between the mountain road and the cliff. A few times, the coach rocked so much that I thought we were going to flip over. Or sometimes we will be so so so close to the edge that I thought we will drop down...
Ponyo was so frightened with the ride that she sometimes clutched my arm tight.
Phew, fortunately, we reached our destination safely.
This is Shi Niu Shan, Stone Ox Mountain.
We decided to walk up the mountain instead of taking the golf car because we wanted 1) exercise and 2) see the sceneries.... The walk didn't disappoint us!
Sitting on the stone in this little creek, I washed my feet. The water was super super cold...
I was told that the water is super cold because it is actually melted ice from the top of the mountain.
Then we came across this tyre bridge.. :) It was fun! Ponyo the timid one opted to cross using the stepping stones instead..
We walked for like 30 minutes before reaching the mountain top but as we all found out, it was the dry season so the waterfall has dried up to a trickle.
Fa Zhu Shen Li... is the name of this area. We had fun here washing feet again... :)
This is ponyo new hairstyle. Gone is the mushroom head.
When we left the nature park, the sun was already setting... We were very worried because the god-like driver is going to drive our coach down the treacherous mountain again! I was quite worried because lighting is not good in this rural. Fortunately, our very skillful driver sent us safely back to our hotel.
