    Three-Generation Tree

    Three-generation Tree

    There are a few very interesting ancient trees in the park. The three-generation tree is the most amazing one. The root lying on the ground is from the first generation and its 1500 years old! Then the tree died and 250 years later the second generation tree started growing on it. However, the second generation tree died again. It took 300 years before the third generation came alive. What you see today is the third generation tree growing on top of the first generation. To its right is the second generation.

    After sunrise

    This is the fully grown up sun that we saw. At this point, people start leaving and try to catch the train down the mountain. Since we chose to hike up here, we are not in a hurry to go back down with the crowd.

    Sunrise at Chushan

    Sunrise

    Everyone is holding their breath for this moment when the sun peeks from the summit on the other side. Initially you see a tiny bright spot come out of the mountain top. It then grows rapidly and become brighter and brighter. In a matter of seconds the sun becomes so strong that you cannot watch it with naked eyes.

    before the sunrise

    We went to see the sunrise on Long Tou. During the winter time, the sun rises at about 7.00 am. The area was surrounded by the mountains and it was a bit misty when we arrived at 6.45 am.
