If you’re up for hiking, be sure to visit #taishan (aka Mount Tai) in #shandong province. Located roughly halfway between Beijing and Shanghai on the high speed train, a climb to the peak of Taishan makes for the perfect day trip. Once you make it to the top, there are tons of restaurants and shops to rest at. If you don’t feel like walking all the way back down to the bottom, there’s a cable car to take you there. But heads up: it will close if the weather is bad. We learned that the hard way - and climbing down the mountain in the pouring rain was an experience to say the least!
Taishan or Mount Tai is one of the sacred Taoist mountain. If you climb it, they say that you will live until 100 years old :) But i took cable car because it was too cold to climb for me, as we visited in winter. When we reached the top, it started to snow, making it really beautiful like in fairytale. At the top, there are some temples you can go, and look around for the view. I would recommend you to avoid winter though because it is always foggy and you cannot see a lot during this time #HalloTrip
Taishan is the first of the "Five Sacred Mountains" in China. It has the reputation of "the first mountain in the world", also known as Dongyue. It is one of the most beautiful and shocking top ten famous mountains in China.
Since ancient times, the Chinese have worshipped Mount Tai, and there is a saying that "Tai Shan An, all the seas are safe." Since the Qin Shihuang Emperor Fengshan Taishan, the emperors of the dynasties have been chanting and offering sacrifices in Mount Tai, and built temples on the Mount Tai.
Taishan is located in the central part of Tai'an City, Shandong Province, China. The main peak of Jade Emperor Peak is 1,545 meters above sea level.

Taishan scenery is famous for its magnificentness. Overlapping mountainous terrain, heavy body shape, the setting of the pine boulder, the change of cloud smoke makes it both beautiful and magnificent in the majestic. The most famous is the "four wonders of Mount Tai".
The four seasons of the mountain are distinct. The top three seasons are like spring, winter is like jade, that is, winter is foggy and crystal clear as jade, which is one of the important landscapes. The sand is large in spring. Taishan has a long winter, with an icing period of 150 days and a minimum temperature of -27.5 °C at the top, forming a smog and rain wonder. During the summer and autumn, the clouds and rains change, the peaks are like mountains, and Lin Maoquan flies.
Sunrise can be seen in many places, but the sunrise of Mount Tai is very colorful because of the peaks and peaks. Peoples life will have many moments that will make people unforgettable. The sunrise of Mount Tai is absolutely It will be one of the unforgettable moments.
From praying, there is a sunrise to the early morning to wait for the black, waiting for the moment when the cliff is on the top of the mountain and waiting for the sun to rise, all of which are deeply imprinted in my mind.
Being able to be selected for the World Natural Heritage or World Cultural Heritage is not easy. In addition to the hardware conditions that must be possessed by the heritage site, the road to the application is extremely long. Xiamen Gulangyu, which has just been included in the World Cultural Heritage, has started its application for the World Heritage since 2008 and it took almost 10 years. China has been applying for World Heritage projects since 1986.
The first batch of World Heritage projects in China was announced in 1987. The six world heritages include the best cultural heritages such as the Great Wall, the Forbidden City and the Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor. Taishan is the only natural and cultural double. Heritage, and this is also the world's first dual heritage of culture and nature.
Taishan is not only beautiful, but has been attached to many political attributes since ancient times. It has been honored as the head of the Five Sacred Mountains, the first mountain in the world, etc. The emperors of the past have attached great importance to Mount Tai. Since Qin Shihuang, 13 emperors have boarded the Taishan Fengzen Festival. Among them, Emperor Wu of the Han Dynasty visited Taishan 10 times and sealed the Zen 6 times.
When climbing, there are many stalls where you can buy snacks and snacks. Pancake rolls are representative of local specialties, both on the mountain and under the mountain. If you want to save effort, you can take the car from the foot of the mountain to Zhongtianmen, then take the cable car to Nantianmen, which is the top of the mountain.
Walking for hiking is more fun. There are countless stone carvings on the mountain along the way. It is one of the most precious treasures of Mount Tai.
There should always be a sunset and sunrise in life, and the place I chose to watch the sunrise for the first time was Mount Tai. Taishan in winter is a low season, and there are fewer people who choose to climb at night. I dont know why I made this decision boldly because I am especially afraid of black ghosts. At two in the morning, a circle of friends was issued in front of the red door to prove that the mountain began to climb, and then the various night owls in the circle of friends commented that there are unknown creatures behind! All kinds of scare me. The moon above my head is my bright light. The stars are a little bit. When the wind blows through the leaves, I can't reach my fingers. There are no other tourists around, so I can't help but shudder. After more than five hours of inner battle, I finally won the victory. At 7:20, I woke up to the sunrise of the day. It was very happy at that moment. For me, sunrise represents hope, and I cant use words to express my first time. The excitement of watching the sunrise on the mountain.
