Lushan Mountain

Lushan is one of China’s famous mountains and spiritual centers. . The mountain consists of 99 peaks, the tallest being Dahanyang, rising to the height of 1474 meters above sea level. With this fantastic blend of mountains, sky, water and cragged cliffs it is one of China’s best summer resorts. Lushan’s views of the plains and the Yangtze are breathtaking. It is full of lovely trees, hills, pavilions, and old Tang pagodas and temples. As a result of tremendous rubbing and grinding of glaciers, its grotesque peaks and cragged cliffs look all the more precipitous. Caves, floral paths, waterfalls, cliffs and gardens all present lyrical wonders. It includes 16 natural wonders, more than 200 scenic spots including rock formations, ponds, springs and waterfalls, pavilions and temples, and 171 peaks standing on rolling mountain ranges.


There are imposing and magnificent peaks, unique waterfalls, and historical sites as well as a changing sea of clouds. The scenic attractions include the Five Elderly Men Peaks (where a waterfall cascades from rock to rock in a total drop of 300 meters), Three-Stage Spring (the most outstanding water attraction), Hanpo Pass (an ideal place to view the sunrise), Lulin Lake, Great Tianchi Lake (a good place to view a sunset and enjoy the Yangtze River), Flower Path (where the noted poet of the Tang Dynasty, Bai Juyi, wrote poems expressing his admiration of the peach blossoms), Ruqin Lake, Jingxiu Valley, Immortal’s Cavern (a stone statue of the immortal stands inside the cave and a spring trickles all the year round), Lesser Tianchi Lake (a good place to enjoy the beauty of the Poyang Lake), Donglin Temple (the birthplace of the Pure Land Sect of Buddhism), and the White Deer Cave Academy (one of the earliest institutes of higher learning in China). Guling Town, the center of the scenic area, is a unique town on the mountain. At an altitude of 1167 meters, it is surrounded on three sides by mountains. To its north is Scissors Pass. A mountain highway leads to the various scenic spots from the town. The resort town of Lushan was established in the late 1800s by and for European and American travelers, and is distinguished by the colonial architecture of its buildings. After 1949, it became famous as a favored meeting place for the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China. It hosted the Eighth Plenum of the Eighth Central Committee, also known as the Lushan Plenum, taking place from July 23 to August 2, 1959. It also hosted the Second Plenum of the Ninth Central Committee in August 1970.
The “Cloud Sea” at Lushan is impressive. Su Dongpo, a well-known poet of the Song Dynasty, honored the “Cloud Sea” of Lushan for its ever-changing mist in one of his poems. He pointed out, “The failure to get the real looks of the mountain only results in the fact that you are right in the midst of it”. By surprising contrast Lushan ranks as one of the top spots for watching a sunrise. Buddhist and Taoist temples, along with landmarks of Confucianism, where the most eminent masters taught, blend effortlessly into a strikingly beautiful landscape that has inspired countless artists who developed the aesthetic approach to nature found in Chinese culture. Lushan’s beauty has been admired for centuries. About 1200 years ago, Li Bai, a master poet of Tang dynasty, portrayed it in verse, paying homage to the magnificent scenery he saw and enjoyed. He used this area and its spenders as inspiration for many of his over 900 poems. However, the beauty of Lushan is beyond all praise. You never know the real feature of the mountain before you stand on its top. You will find imposing peaks, magnificent waterfalls, weird caves, beautiful lakes, sheer recipices, and ever-changing clouds. Writings about the mountain are plenty as poets and writers of various times have been inspired to extol the mountain’s charm. In 1996, Lushan was placed on the World Cultural Heritage list. Due to the sharp difference in temperature between day and night, it is best to take a few extra clothes, even in mid-summer when the average temperature in the mountains is 22 degrees Centigrade. A raincoat for the ever-changing humid climate is essential.
