Drum Mountain (Gu Shan), Fuzhou

3.8
#1 of 20 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.

    Fuzhou, is the most frequented gushan, often alone on my own mountain, or go and do it. Most often take the left road, relatively higher steps, people walk less, slowly, less than 1, the gazebo, now above you can see the River in Fuzhou, and gridlocked roads. Drum Hill on the night, refreshing coolness, boisterous

    Said truth, Deng gushan tour also really of is physical live, a three mouth this thought can gently pine pine top, 1800 a steps also really not easy, may is weather of reasons, feel good hard, but car mountain and walk climbing is two species completely different of experience, each steps are can feel gushan of style, in winding streets of steps road experience has travel of fun. Gushan Temple Yongquan Temple of pure grace, bye bye, carved stone which gave you insight into history and culture, normal in play time for about 2 hours, Hill chose van, 8 yuan per person.
