Jiaozuo Yuntai Mountain

Jiaozuo is a city in the northwest of Henan Province in the People’s Republic of China. It’s relatively unknown to foreigners and has a population of around 3.5 million. Jiaozuo is known for its role in the Chinese coal industry and for its rich historical and natural beauty. The city hosts several large, state-owned coal companies. In addition, Jiaozuo has a significant steel and chemical industry.

Regarding its natural beauty, Jiaozuo is known for Yuntai Mountain, which is a UNESCO Global Geopark. This park is characterized by its natural landscapes, including waterfalls, rivers, lakes, and valleys. Furthermore, Jiaozuo is home to the famous Shaolin Monastery, often regarded as the birthplace of Shaolin Kung Fu and has a long history and deep cultural significance in China. The Shaolin Monastery is located on Song Mountain, another well-known tourist site in the area. Unfortunately, we only had half a day, so we could only visit Yuntai Mountain.

On rainy days, it is particularly beautiful here, as the mountain transforms into a mystical world. The fog creeps through the mountains, creating a hide-and-seek effect, which brings about a mysterious atmosphere. The stone walls of the mountain glow in various colors, and the rain makes them shine even more brightly. The rain continuously shapes the mountain, erodes rocks, and creates waterfalls. The dense green forest forms a natural frame around everything. The forest is alive, and the smell of damp earth fills the air.

After a conference on “Software Testing”, in which we dealt with technical issues, we ended up in this natural environment. Walking through this natural splendor creates a special kind of community. Together we navigate through the fog, experience the wonder of the rain, and marvel at the vast green of the forest. These shared experiences create a connection, a kind of silent communication.

We look back on a successful conclusion to a busy day. Now we are returning home, and once again, I have gotten to know a city in China that seems to be constantly changing: from an industrial city with coal and steel to a modern industrial city, surrounded by a wonderful, mystical landscape.
