Mount Wuyi, one of the 'top 10 attractions in Fujian, China' by

Mount Wuyi []

Located on the junction of Fujian and Jiangxi, Mount Wuyi is a famous scenic spot bearing red cliffs, lofty peaks, a deep and secluded valley, caves and fantastic rock peaks. Covering an area of 60 square kilometers (6,000 hectares), it is the most outstanding biodiversity conservation zone in the southeastern part of China.

Most of the hills here are made of red sandstones, rise steeply but are flat on the top. The peaks and rocks of grotesque shapes are girded by clear streams and embraced by green trees and bamboo plants. The Nine-bend River, 60 kilometers (37.28 miles) long, meanders among the hills, presenting the most charming tourist route within this scenic zone.

Mount Wuyi has a long cultural history. The site of the Wuyi Palace, built in the seventh century for emperors to conduct sacrificial activities, remains until this day. It had been an important center of China's Taoism and was listed as one of the top nine Taoist Temples in the 10th century. The mountain also boasts many other cultural relics, including stone inscriptions.

In 1999, Mount Wuyi entered the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites, both on a natural and cultural level.

Admission: 140 yuan(US$22.02)/person
