Wow! Great terrain, incredible views, and the road is really something to see! Thanks very much for the beautiful photos.

I'm not used to seeing so many people around on an overnighter, but I can see why people do that mountain.

Really interesting terrain, very much like the canyons in the American southwest. Where in China is this?

The Taihang Mountains (Chinese: 太行山; pinyin: Tàiháng Shān) are a Chinese mountain range running down the eastern edge of the Loess Plateau in Henan, Shanxi and Hebei provinces. The range extends over 400 km from north to south and has an average elevation of 1,500 to 2,000 meters. The principal peak is Xiao Wutaishan (2,882 metres). Cangyan Shan in Hebei forms the eastern tip of the Taihang range.
