Drum Mountain (Gu Shan), Fuzhou

(3.7/5 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.

  • 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...
