Mt Huaguoshan, Lianyungang

#1 of 8 in Things to do in Lianyungang
Mountain Historic Site
A World Heritage Site with over 400 scenic spots, Mt Huaguoshan blends ancient Chinese myths with spectacular, pristine nature. With seas of clouds, strangely shaped rocks, ravines, and numerous peaks, this legendary home to the mythical Yellow Emperor also offers hot springs and waterfalls at its foot. Enjoy hikes with unparalleled views and check out traditional villages with alpine architecture, monkey temples, and pagodas perched on impossible ledges. You'll be greeted by oddly shaped pine trees and meet the mountain's most famous boulder--the 12 m (39 ft) tall Flying Rock, leaning over a cliff. At the end of the hike, have a cup of maofeng tea, a local specialty. Put Mt Huaguoshan into our Lianyungang trip generator and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • We went with a tour group on a rather cloudy day. Still, it was lovely! We took a tour bus to the top and took a short hike to the top. No views to be seen because of the clouds, but we were welcomed ...  more »
