Drum Mountain (Gu Shan), Fuzhou

(3.6/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Listed as a national scenic spot, Drum Mountain (Gu Shan) features many historical sites, including a temple known as “a treasure of Buddhist sutras,” and inscriptions on cliffs left by notables of past dynasties. The long hike up the steep hill may be strenuous for some, so consider riding the cable car while enjoying scenic views of the city and its surroundings. Another 20 minutes' hike up the mountain trail and 2,000 stone steps will lead you to the temple. Over 300 inscriptions--some dating back to the 10th century--lay scattered around the complex, along with 18 distinctive rock formations, each one telling a different story associated with popular legends. The mountain also boasts caves, waterfalls, ancient rhododendron trees, and a tea plantation.

  • 非常神奇的千年铁树,枝枝缠绕。古树在涌泉寺的方丈室内,一定要有人带才能看到。涌泉寺的香火很灵,大家可以去拜拜,求个签 
  • Friendly ballad, we took the eggs to go up, but we can reach the Summit on foot, after thousands of markets! And a few hours... At the top has share the thing not big temple. A lot of noise, with the speakers that broadcast ads, traditional music! Noise of the noise! On the other hand to the temple, calm and quiet... very nice, beautiful colors and nice monks. But you have to pay the entrance...

  • 在福州下院,福州较为高的山。说起特别其实也没有太大特别之处,倒是很适合平日爬山休闲,不必当景点走,本地人倒是去的多。游览车,可以爬山然后坐下来,对身体也好。山腰有小瀑布,上山路中有休息亭子,中间也要小卖品。山上有涌泉寺,上山不收费,进景点就收费了。想去的可以试试,出来玩倒是没太大所谓。晚上在山上看福州夜景倒是不错的。
