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.

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。 
  • 作为福州最高的一座山,鼓山的名气可不小。初到福州的时候,就已经听说了鼓山。第一次爬山的时候,我们没有刻意的寻求刺激去走小道,而是跟着大部队沿着楼梯一步一步的往上爬。可以说爬山是一种非常累的活动,可还是那么多人去爬山,大概是因为想看到从山顶俯视山脚的景色吧,恩,也许这就是先苦后甜的一种。去年开始爬鼓山,只是今年才开始有了晚上去爬鼓山的习惯,晚上爬鼓山建议不要7 点8点的时候过去,因为人巨多。这也是我...  more »
