“No matter how tall the mountain is, it cannot block the sun.” – Chinese Proverb. ✨
We’ve got some mountain-related activities for you!
山 – this character you might know quite well. 🙂 Also, the negative space between the strokes makes us think of an “m.” Can you see the resemblance?
⛰️To go uphill – 上山 (shàng shān)
⛰️To go down the hill – 下山 (xià shān)
And a bonus expression for all the active folks out there:
⛰️ Mountain climbing – 爬山 (pá shān)
上 and 下 are such versatile characters and can mean a multitude of things. For example “get on” & “get off” or “start” & “finish.” If you put them together like this 上下, that will mean “go ups and downs.”
