Trek up Red Army Mountain

Zunyi is the birthplace of modern Communist China.

Here, Mao Zedong consolidated his power over the Party and the Chinese opposition to the Nationalists.

Soon after arriving in Zunyi, a retired English Professor of Zunyi Normal College took us up the mountain. It's more a hill, really, but a foundational site for modern China--similar to the site of the U.S. Declaration of Independence, perhaps.

Some amazing views...
