Mount Qian Shan, Anshan

(4.5/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Spend a whole day exploring the mountain trails that wind though the pristine forest of Mount Qian Shan, filled with both Buddhist and Taoist temples. Among rolling peaks coated with greenery stands a 70 m (230 ft) high statue of Buddha shaped by nature, claimed to be the largest one of its kind worldwide. Paved footpaths and thousands of steps climb steeply up the hillsides, passing small shrines, pagodas, and carved monuments honoring the dead. You can cover a lot of the area by renting an electric cart or riding on the cable car, but to climb all the way up to the summit you'll have to go by foot. Work out when and for how long to visit Mount Qian Shan and other Anshan attractions using our handy Anshan travel itinerary planner.

  • 秋天來的,十月中旬,鞍山市中心往東靠著千山,千山往東就都是山區了。金秋時節的千山比任何時候都漂亮,彩色的山體,紅的黃的綠的葉子。 
  • beautiful mountain views, great walk, on foot or by cable car, I advise you to go on Monday, almost no one, you are all alone 
  • Qian Shan National park is one of the kind of attractions that are not listed in the Lonely Planet, but despite it's worth a visit. The Park takes, as most other Chinese national parks, entre. Then when it is paid, then there is a free-for-all to hiking in a national park, which offers something real well (and actually really hard) hiking. In particular, the six kilometer-long hike along the mountain peaks offers both on some amazing views, and provides plenty of exercise. Remember to take the cable car up to the start of the hiking trail, since it saves a part climbing at the beginning.
