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. You can plan Fuzhou trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • 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.

  • A small number of scenic spots that can enjoy the serenity of the mountains, this is an ancient temple in the mountain, the number of visitors are less, when you will see the monks, is also recommended by the scene.
