Putuo Mountain (Putuoshan), Zhoushan

(4.2/5 based on 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.

  • For avid Buddhists out there who want to go temple hopping and attempt zen-like state. Here is the place for you. There are a lot of temples and views to see and hike and I definitely recommend either...  more »
  • 与家人一起去的,感觉整个普陀山的经济都是靠游客支撑的,大大小小的庙宇庄严气派,穿插着许多佛教故事和传说,环境非常好,特别是晚上出去散步的时候真的能感受到佛门之地的清净。唯一的缺点就是缺乏整治,假冒的和尚和各种各样强迫给钱的乞讨特别多,岛上的各种各样的收费也是非常过分。 
  • A must visit place for Buddhist. Even if you are not a Buddhist, the serenity and amazing sights will capture you.
