I don't know where it is, but I couldn't get groceries up there either :)
You sure there's no hidden lift there? :P But yeah...that would be a cost-effective way to get fit!!
I'll bet there's an elevator built inside that mountain. Sheesh!We have 21 steps at our house (between the 1st & 2nd floors) and it's a workout for me everyday.
Where is this place? It looks incredibly amazing like a zippered egg.
Hi Lily, that looks amazing! it obviously is a tourist attraction... but if those are actually stairs, wow! i would need a rest per minute to make it to the top!
Yeah, I wouldn't drag my fat ass up those stairs, either. I'd sit at the bottom and eat straight out of the bags.
I am thinking its China and I would never ever venture up those steps. Whatever's up there better be good.
I would be calling take out every night. I wonder whatwould happen if you had a medical emergency. I guess you would have to get a helicopter up there. The view would want to be good.
You know what, I seriously think there is a nice sloping motorable road on the other side. Or an elevator in the middle. How do you think people delivered washing machines, and refrigerators and freezers there. Unless of course, its not a home. But say, something like a bank. In which case I hope the managers have to climb up those weird steps every single day. Come to think of it, wouldnt it be a great punishment for your bank, after you win your case ? :-)
lol! I've never seen something like that.
Groceries? Heck I doubt you could get anyone to deliver a pizza to that place.
My goodness! I would love to see who does live there. Don't think you would have to worry about robbers or burglers or anyone coming to see you!
OhMYGosh, me neither, perhaps I need to stay a summer there and get the rest of this wait off. Cuz I sure am tired of NOT eating the fun food.
Love it! But not very child-friendly -I'd be scared of falling off.
Well, that's surely one way to get away from it all!! I would definitely become a recluse if I lived there! And a thin one at that!!
Looks like a picture challenge. I thought maybe a reader might have identified it. I'll search around but I'm not sure what to search on - big egg looking zipper thing with a building on top?Maybe this is where Humpty Dumpty is from??
oh the wonders of internet searching - picture searching especially.It's El Peñol, ColombiaHere's more pics and some descriptionhttp://www.onourownpath.com/colombia/we-climbed-a-big-rock-el-penol-colombia/190/postthat was fun - what do I win bragging rights?
Must be an elevator somewhere. Either that or they will need benches along the walk for people to rest. Maybe mountain climbing?
Hi dear Lilly, I have missed you and had to at least pop in and say "HI". I've been so busy, signing book contract in a couple of weeks and moving forward with THAT project finally. I'll announce it on my blog when it's a done deal. It's been a long long journey and there is much more to go but it sure is good to finally see this happening. I have missed being here and was just looking through some of your posts. I had to laugh over this one. See I would LOVE living here, because no one would bother me. I would have a lot of peace and quiet. People are going to think twice before climbing all those steps. I wouldn't mind climbing them every day. It would ensure I stay fit and healthy. I would just throw my pack on my back, put all my groceries in it and start trekking up and down and down and up, round and round. LOL!!! :)) Every day would be an adventure. I wonder if there is water up there? Like a well. That would be the hardest part to lug water for drinking bathing and laundry. Maybe the roof has rainwater tanks on it. Sending you love and hugs my dear beautiful friend. Robin
I´ve seen some weird houses on the net, but this is new to me. Funny, what people think of doing!
wow, since lisleman found it, I searched it's name on flickr, and found heaps more photos! What an amazing place! http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=El%20Pe%C3%B1ol&w=all
There's a tree house in Disneyland or California theme park that had what seemed like a million stairs. I thought I would die after we were finally done. My legs were actually wobbling. Then again there is a metal staircase in Yellowstone National Park that leads down to the Lower Falls on Uncle Tom's trail and there are over 300 steps. That was quite a journey. Unfortunately they had some loose rocks fall this year and it took out a chunk of the staircase and it is now closed until they repair it.Good job Lisleman.
So glad lisleman gave us the scoop! What an interesting rock :) With a snack bar on top! Other than that not much of an explanation, just a leaves it to our imagination.
I'm hoping the escalator is around the back!Pearl
Woo Hoo Lisleman - I will mention you on my blog. Always knew you were the clever kind.
Holy cow is that the only way up?? Kind of cool looking though!
That AWESOME. would be putting in an ELEVATOR thats for damn sure. :) That would be so much fun though.
Geez, there's no way my hobbit legs would get up those! I'd be camping at the bottom.
Hi Lilly, I think its either a house or temple....but climbing those steps no joke.If living there, buy a long rope, use as a sling with a basket one end....should solve the eating problems, ha ha.Have a nice day, Lee.
That has to be a meditation point or a temple of some sort. My knees would die pretty quickly. If it were me, after awhile I'd build some sort of tram.
That? Is my midsection.
Great post! To me, I think the more interesting question is WHY? I guess the builder had worries about security, eh? :)
Think I'll stick to my usual three- times-a-week down at the gym.
You are going to think I am crazy, but that looks like a whale, the mouth and teeth and an eye, oh well, have a nice weekend.
Goodness me! That is highly (!) unusual!
So glad I stumbled on your lovely lovely blog today, it's always nice to find other blogger out and about on the net!I must tell you that I like like like your nice blog!Agneta & Sweden
Just glad I'm not the postman or the window cleaner
That is what husbands and kids are for! And you can make them take out the trash also! :o)
You wouldn't get a lot of trick or treaters either!
Good Lord I am not sure that I would ever get up there in the first place, let alone EVERYDAY. I think I would just stay home. I like the idea of ordering in or making the husband and kid do it. Trash would be easy, roll it down.
Missing you dear Lilly!
Where are you Lilly?
Lilly have you gone to live in the Mountain House and turned into a recluse ? WE ALL miss you !
I couldn't even get up there! With or without groceries:)
Oh goodness, I'd hate to be the pizza delivery boy.
Lilly, I miss you!
Makes me tired just looking at it!
that's kingkongs back rest! ;)hope you visit back! linked you!
That is one helluva climb :)
ha ha i love it....that is how i should loose weight buy a house on a large hill or mountain, thanks for the tip!
I'd demand a elevator.
