Once I felt like we must certainly be on top of the mountain, I was loathe to discover more stairs everywhere I turned. We stepped into several caverns which were homes to Buddhist shrines, but most were too dark to accommodate my little pocket camera. Eventually, however, we made it to the absolute top of Marble Mountain. I was glad to have been able to have made the climb, but it is one adventure that I definitely will not be repeating!
