Tea Time... Chinese Style!

http://www.justaskshirley.com/photos/china/wow.htm

That tea better suck your dick, I don’t see how else that journey would be worth it. I wonder how many people have died traversing this route.

I am pretty sure that is actually a monetary or some other religious site on the top of the rock, not a tea house.

I probably would wear a parachute just in case going up that path. But that is one trek for sure. Be a cool place to live.

Grocery shopping would be a bitch. I’m also guessing that you’d be unable to get landlines of any sort, so no stable electricity, plumbing, or cable. Probably have to make do with rain catchers for water, and if you want internet and electricity you need to use solar panels and satellites. I didn’t see any solar panels, though.

In short, cool place to vacation, terrible place to live.

Always gotta be that one guy to ruin it! LOL. No but I wonder what does down the house to the right. Cause really how did they get all the materials to build the house all the way up there? Lets say this is built before anything helicopter.

Another site for info.

Can’t see my other post to edit it and include this link

One man’s story of conquering the climb.

EDIT: Whoops, I didn’t realize that you posted that link already. I can’t figure out how to delete posts.

Yeah, that seems to be my job some days. I’m guessing that back in the day they had this little innovation known as imperial edict, or slave labor. Be surprised at what that sort of thing can accomplish. If not, then hats off to them, that’s a fucking crazy thing to build.
