#1 of 202 in Nature in Zhejiang
Island Mountain
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.

Where to stay in Zhoushan

Perched beneath the foothills of several soaring mountains, the town of Minakami-machi provides a picturesque stepping stone from which to explore the dramatic surrounding scenery. Buzzing with ski activity in season (December to March), the town draws Tokyo residents looking to escape the crush of city life. That said, Minakami-machi remains relatively undiscovered among the international tourist set, despite its three surrounding mountain peaks. In the warmer months, Minakami-machi vacations still offer a wealth of options: from canoeing in the national park, to the dozens of onsens, you can get out into nature at your own pace.
