Weekly Photo Challenge: Beginning

Zijinshan Ropeway

Purple Mountain, Nanjing, Jiangsu, China

This is the view from the Zijinshan Ropeway on the way to the top of Purple Mountain in Nanjing, Jiangsu, China. The end of the ride is not the first building in the distance, but is actually near the antennas at the top of the mountain in the distance. The trip takes thirty minutes from bottom to top and offers incredible views of the countryside and the city skyline. On this day there was quite a bit of haze throughout the valley and the city, but we could make out buildings and rolling hills. Small temples and pagodas dotted the hills while skyscrapers loomed on the horizon. The ride felt safe and was an incredibly comfortable way to reach the top of Purple Mountain.
