How bad do you want a cup of tea? If you want to drink a cup of tea at the Huashan Teahouse on Mount Hua, you’re going to have to put in the effort to get there. The journey starts with a 20-minute cable car ride. Next comes a hike up steep, uneven terrain and across narrow paths where a misstep could be fatal. Despite the dangers, nearly a million people a year visit the Buddhist and Daoist temple and Huashan Teahouse that sit atop one of China’s highest peaks. ZhiHeng Yang, a supply porter on Mount Hua, shows us the way.
