China’s Loveliest Mountain: Huangshan (黄山)
Huangshan (黄山), or “Yellow Mountain,” is situated in east China’s Anhui province. It’s known for sweeping views of jutting granite peaks that emerge just above the clouds, sturdy pine trees and must-see sunrises over the North Sea. As a result of its scenic beauty, the site is a major tourist destination in China. Over 15 million tourists visited in 2007 alone.
Those who visit Huangshan have the opportunity to stand on the world’s highest bridge, known as The Bridge of Immortals. Visitors can also climb several hundred steps past mysterious caves to Lotus Peak—Huangshan’s highest summit at an altitude of 1,837 meters (6,027 feet).

The Y3 Qasa comes from a branch of Adidas, focusing on fashion and innovation. Designed by Yohji Yamamoto, the Qasa features a minimal shoe somewhat reminiscent of the Nike Roshe Run.
