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.

  • Hengshan I have climbed three times, memorable is the first time, then I and my classmates spent 5 hours to climb up, rest a while, and spent a few hours to walk down, but unfortunately we lost. Because the world of light rain, so on the Hengshan saw the fairy gas, it is very spectacular, feeling in the heaven. Overlooking the mountains, a kind of bullying is extremely, a glance at the small momentum of the mountains. Hengshan is worth a climb!

  • The place is beautiful but not bought ticket contains the electric car then I sat down to Nantaiji when I finished watching Nantaiji it was very early I looked for a car to go back to the mill. They said they didn't have a car to call me. Let's go, it's 3 o ' clock in the afternoon. It's not polite to take the money and look it without service. You're lucky I feel that the country There's always no recipe, so come on. I'm glad I'm coming back, or you're going to get me into a state of discomfort. It's been a long time.

  • China's Hengshan is the most suitable to see some of China's ugly side of the place, most people go to this mountain is not hiking, are mainly Buddhist incense, the major sites to sell tickets are bundled with rich incense to sell, really superstitious and ignorant mess. So rare to see hiking, repair the road is the car road, earn the car of the scenic spot, lie shrine is very few tourists, really ironic!
