Well if it upsets you that much, report me, it's only a thread about my home country, it's not a political thread or a thread on the discovery of a new vaccine.
The mountain is believed to be a sleeping dragon by many older Chinese. If that is going to cause you to lose sleep or upset your day. So, I edited the title so not to cause you any permanent damage or undo stress.
Feel Free To Report Me and My thread, if you haven't all ready.
Have a nice day and go read a thread that you understand.

I'd still like to see a real dragon though.edit on 7-1-2013 by Night Star because: (no reason given)
Dragons have often appeared in Chinese legends. The dragon with two horns on its head is regarded as a totem. The totem was first invented by Chinese ancestors and worshipped by the Chinese people. Therefore Chinese people are also called the “descendents of the dragon”.
The dragon fossil was found in Guanling County, Anshun City, in 1996, and has been kept in a good condition. It is measured 7.6 meters long. Its head is 76 centimeters long and the neck is 54 centimeters long. The body is 2.7 meters in length and 68 centimeters in width, and the tail is 3.7 meters long.

Firstly, unfortunately I can't watch the video.
Secondly, the photos are enough for me to be awed by this place.
Thirdly, I'm gutted I didn't go there while is was living in shaanxi province.
Fourthly, annoyingly misleading thread title.
Fifthly xie xie for the photos which I might never have seen if you had named the thread properly.

OP can you clarify something for me?
In an earlier post you gave the impression that you looked out on a drop of 5,000 metres. Were you saying that, because if you were where do I book my ticket and how much is it to base jump?
5000 metres is an awfully long drop, more than half the height of Everest above sea level, and as far as I know higher than the drops on that mountain.
Tourists can walk on kilometres of paths built onto the cliff face at the top of the mountain, including sections with glass floors. An 11km road with 99 bends also reaches the top of the mountain and takes visitors to Tianmen cave, a natural hole in the mountain of a height of 131.5 metres
The distance between these starting points and the bottom of valley is 300-400 meters, with the highest 700 meters.
January is the coldest with the lowest temperature dropping to -38 C (-36 F), while it is just 20 C (68 F) on average in summer. The city can be visited at any time, especially from July to September and from December to January.
