Putuo Mountain (Putuoshan), Zhoushan

(600+ reviews on the web)
Marvel at the 33 m (108 ft) gilded statue of Guanyin Goddess of Mercy and Compassion at Putuo Mountain (Putuoshan), one of the four sacred mountains in Chinese Buddhism. Part of the Zhoushan archipelago, this spectacular island-mountain is arguably the most beautiful of the 400 islands--peaks of a submerged mountain range. Take the ferry from Zhoushan to explore the mountain's three major temples, plus a cable car offering spectacular scenery. Walk along two long sandy beaches, or take a stroll in the woods and observe a 1,000-year-old camphor tree amid magnificent hornbeams. A popular tourist place and pilgrimage spot, the island also has modern facilities.

  • 大年初一出发,从北京开车到宁波,初四来到普陀山。因为正赶春节周边都来倒佛门圣地普陀山来为新的一年祈福烧香。当天上岛的时候是在上午,已有6万多人次的登岛,所以可想而知那个场面,但应该还不是最多的,初一的上岛人数好像要有10万人次左右。环境倒是挺好的,因为时间紧只能去看了两三个比较著名的景点,可以留点遗憾给下次的旅行。  more »
