Yesterday I finished a four-day trek to Emei Shan, one of the four sacred mountains in China. It was a grueling climb – 50 km one way. That means I walked, climbed and descended more than a 100 km. And the fact that the path up the mountain consists of neatly hewn stone steps does not make it easier. I must have climbed and descended at least a million steps. No exaggeration. Leiyin Monastery, written on this board, is located around three to four km above base.
