Thousand Tortoise Mountain

Thousand Tortoise Mountain

Alvin Ing , May 2013

The Thousand Tortoise Mountain on Laojun Mountain in the Liming Scenic Area, Yunnan, China. I left my hotel in Liming at 0430 and walked from a base altitude of 2700m, and ascended 600m over 2.7km. I arrived at the Summit at 0600 in time for a spectacular sunrise. The unique surface of this rock has been literally termed "thousands of tortoises racing for swimming".
