Drum Mountain (Gu Shan), Fuzhou

3.8
#1 of 25 in Parks in Fuzhou
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. You can plan Fuzhou trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • Beautiful place to escape from the busy and noisy in Fuzhou. If the weather is clear, there are several places you beautiful views of Fuzhou. You can choose to have to go up on foot or by cable car (return ticket 70 RMB). We have for this last elected to that walking quite a sporting challenge. From the lift station to the Quan Yin Temple (30RMB) is about a 15-minute walk away. Do not expect the same "pomp and circumstance" as temples in Thailand, it's all here a little easier, but definitely worth a visit. From the lift station there are several hiking routes. A lover of walking can certainly let off some steam here.

  • Gushan, the mountain is about a small time to walk the distance (each person speed is different), I do not recommend the mountain to sit cables car, slowly walk, take a deep breath, let their body healthier. Down the mountain, for the protection of the knee, it is possible to take the cables car, but it is not easy to see a bit unsafe, not cheap. But go away in the summer ... It's hot all the time.

  • The name of Yongquan Temple. Read the introduction of Lonely Planet, know that there are so-called chicken silk wood altar, blood classics, Thousand year of the Sambo. When an outlaw, got the teachings of the Old Master, "where the Triple gem, Dharma Monk is the triple gem." Anyway, it's worth visiting.
