Mount Hengshan, Hengyang

#1 of 16 in Things to do in Hengyang
One of the Five Great Mountains of China, Mount Hengshan has remained a sacred site since the Zhou dynasty, due to its strong Taoist presence. Of the five sacred mountains, this one stands out as the least commercialized and developed, so take a lovely hike to admire ancient temples carved into the rocks along the route. Alternatively, you can ride a cable car part of the way and walk the rest. Panoramic views, and, depending on the season, a flower-covered summit await your arrival at the peak. The trail can become very busy, so it’s best to start early and finish early to avoid crowds along the route.

  • Mountain I've climbed three times, is memorable for the first time, when my classmates and I spent 5 hours to climb up, rest a while, took several hours to come down, but unfortunately we lost. Because it was rain, so seen on the mountain, it is very spectacular, feel in heaven. Overlooking the mountains, there'll be the top, list of small hills of momentum. Mountain worth climbing!

  • Chinese mountain is the most suitable place to see some ugly side of China, most of the mountain is not a mountain walk, are burning incense, and major site selling tickets are sold with bundled rich incense, superstition and ignorance is a mess. So few hiking, roads are motorways, to make a killing area car, martyrs ' Shrine is the tourist little ironic!
