This is the core scenic area of the famous Taoist mountain-Kongtong Mountain. It is directly accessible by cableway or eco-car. Of course, it can also be reached on foot for two hours. There are many Taoist temples left from the Ming and Qing Dynasties. There are many tourists and believers, and the incense is flourishing.
This time I went to Gansu on a business trip. I wanted to climb the mountain on Saturday and Sunday. I compared some famous mountains around. The most convenient one is Kongtong Mountain. Kongtong District itself is the urban area of Pingliang, coming from the center of Kongtong District There is a bus directly there, so one day is quite enough, the imperial city, go up, about an hour.
The road to the imperial city is the most crowded and the most scenic. If you walk down from the middle station, it will take about three hours to go back and forth. Along the way, you will pass the ladder, the emperor’s questioning place, and various views. On the viewing platform, various ancient Chinese buildings are scattered among them.
The most important thing on Dongtai is the temple complex. Here you can see a relatively complete reservoir landscape, but none of the temples are currently open, so you can only go to the observation deck on Dongtai to take a look. You cannot enter the temple. Still a bit regretful.
The most interesting thing is the road to the imperial city. You can see a lot of allusions along the way. If you have time, I suggest you go to the Pingliang City Museum below. The geology and history of Kongtong Mountain will be more profound. understanding.
