Mt. Jiuhua

Jiuhua Mount together with Wutai Mount in Shanxi Province, Putuo Mount in Zhejiang Province and E-mei Mountain in Sichuan Province is member of the mountains that are known for the Buddhist culture.

Jiuhua Mountain consists of nine peaks, of which make a circle just like a lotus. Precious animals like giant salamander and rarely seen plants like Zamioculcas zamiifolia are one of the treasures here. Clear streams originating from Jiuhua Mountain are running down to different directions, forming a pleasant scene around. The curtain-like waterfalls are flying down from the cliffs, providing another kind of splendid landscape for you.

Throughout the ages, such celebrities as poets, painters and calligraphers have been attracted by the marvelous sceneries. Libai (701-762), a famous poet in Tang Dynasty, once came to visit the mountain. The verse slipped out when he was intoxicated with the scene of lotus blooms-like peaks of Mt. Jiuhua, 'From the azure skies above descends a jade-like flow, and nine fascinating lotuses rise out of the hills below'. Later, poet Liu Yuxi (772-784) in Tang Dynasty, litterateur Wang Anshi (1021-1086) in North Song Dynasty and many other scholars, politicians and monks also made the journey to the mountain.

The picturesque natural landscapes together with the wonderful human landscapes won a name as the Most Wonderful Mountain in Southeastern China for Jiuhua Mountain. Sunrise, sunset, seas of clouds, soft rime and Buddha’s Light are too beautiful to forget.
