Mount Wuyi - CHINA - UNESCO #911
This card brings me another beautiful photography from China (as I've said yesterday, I really love water reflections). The Mount Wuyi is famous for it's amazing combination between water and mountains. According to the sender that lives near this site, it's a wonderful place, but in July and August so crowded of noisy tourists that it's not easy to enjoy the views (that's a problem almost everywhere, unfortunately). Thank you so much Lily for this awesome adiction to my collection (310 down, 671 to go). This postcard took 27 days to arrive!
Mount Wuyi is the most outstanding area for biodiversity conservation in south-east China and a refuge for a large number of ancient, relict species, many of them endemic to China. The serene beauty of the dramatic gorges of the Nine Bend River, with its numerous temples and monasteries, many now in ruins, provided the setting for the development and spread of neo-Confucianism, which has been influential in the cultures of East Asia since the 11th century.
