It really looks like RP roots are better than the yin of the scene. Su Huafei, Dan Xiufang. Lin Qing wall, is a purple house., feathers to fly. Nanyue Hengshou Tour is a harvest of misty mountains and valleys, more suitable for Buddhists to climb the top of the cable car compare the price of seafood, the price of smog is 128 (the cable car back and forth + round trip transfer) the usual price 78 (Gondola round-trip + one-way downhill drive) So in the entire mountaineering hike in Hengshan, how to save physical strength to get the best position? You need to look at the map at the foot of the mountain, mark the key location, and then climb the whole. preferred photo point: mountain foot temple red wall who said that must go into the temple to shoot, the red wall outside the temple has a taste, to the side of the station, a different visitor feel came out . Secondary photo point: Fanyin Ancient Road During the climbing process, you will see a variety of hiking trails, bend the trails to capture the back, or call the back friends to capture the back, very artistic conception. Key photo points: Zhu Rongfengding topping is a difficult and long process. Many people will rush to the big stone of "Nanyue Hengshan", which is too grounded. Losing the characteristics, you can take a slant and take a picture at the big stone of "Zhu Rongfeng". There are not many people.
