Baoji is located in the western part of the Guanzhong Plain in Shaanxi Province. Baoji and Xi'an are located, respectively, on the western and eastern end of the Qingling Ridge. Baoji has a complex terrain, with many rivers such as the Weihe River and Jialing River. Baoji has a long history and is the birthplace of the Qin State of Zhou Dynasty. A large number of Western Zhou bronzes have been unearthed here. There are historical monuments such as the Famen Temple and Jiang Ziya Fishing Terrace. The area has beautiful natural sceneries, including Taibai Mountain National Forest Park, Guanshan Ranch, Tangyu Hot Springs and other fascinating scenic spots.
Famen Temple is located in Fufeng County, Baoji City. Originally constructed during the late Eastern Han dynasty, it was an imperial temple during the Tang dynasty (618-907) because it housed the holiest of Buddhist items, a finger bone of the Gautama Buddha (Sakyamuni), thereby becoming a holy place revered across the country. Today's Famen Temple comprises two parts: the cluster of old Tang-style architecture (the Famen temple complex and True Relic Pagoda) and the newly built cultural scenic area. The precious true relic of the finger bone of the Gautama Buddha is enshrined in the Namaste Dagoba on the east side of the cultural scenic area.
The Taibai Mountain National Forest Park is located at the northern foot of Taibai Mountain, the main peak of the Qin Mountains. The park's Taibai Mountain is the main peak of the Qin range and extends to a height of over 3,700 meters. Beautiful scenery fills the park, and there is a year-round accumulation of snow at the top of the mountain, even at the height of summer. Today, Taibai Mountain Forest Park is beloved of hiking enthusiasts. These visitors enjoy Taibaishan by climbing and crossing the mountain, whether in light or heavy gear. Routes to the summit include the north slope and the south slope, with visitors either hiking or taking a tram. Guests climbing the mountain must stick to developed mountain climbing routes and may not venture off the main paths.
The Guanshan Grasslands are located in Long County near Baoji City. The area is known for its beautiful alpine landscape with pristine forests, meadows, rivers, mountains, and valleys. The famous Han dynasty military leaders Wei Qing and Huo Qubing passed through here on their way to launch a campaign against the Xiongnu nomadic tribes.
Located at the mountain hot springs at the foot of Taibai Mountain, the hot springs health areas include an outdoor hot springs area, an indoor spa treatment area, a steam area, and a relaxation area. The outdoor hot springs are built against the mountain and include a dynamic hot springs area, a private hot springs area, and a children's play area, with dozens of different kinds of hot spring pools to choose from. Indoors, you can enjoy activities like lying in a “bubble bed,” taking a relaxing soak, or having a foot acupuncture bath.
