A gallery of images from Qingcheng Mountain in Sichuan province, an important centre of Taoism. The main temple is reached via a winding path through the forest to the peak. Local people are helping repair damage to the trail and the mountainside caused by the 2008 earthquake that struck the region. They can be seen scampering up the mountain with heavy loads of bricks and bollards strapped on their back. Each exhausting trip earns them a few dollars.
