About Qingyuan Mountain

Qingyuan Mountain is the only 5A scenic spot in Quanzhou, which is a local landmark. The mountain is only 500 meters above sea level and is a perfect spot for a casual hike. With thousands of years of history, a major highlight is Laojun Rock. Located at the foothill, it is a detailed carved sculpture of Laozi. Literally taste the culture of Southern Fujian by stopping and taking tea breaks during your hike. Brewing tea on the mountain while observing the view is highly recommended.

    This is a great place to visit with children. we started at the entrance near the Shaolin temple and took a bus to the top of the mountain. It cost 70 yuan each but the kids were free. we hiked to Sky lake, bravery rock, qingyuan caves, Nantai village and viewing area, stupa master, yuanyuan cave, and finally Laozi. There are bathrooms and palaces to eat along the way but I reccomend bringing snacks and lots if water. The views are spectacular. If you can find a clear day to go you will take some magnificent photos. We probably walked aroubd 6km total. Word of warning. If you start from the South gate near Laozi it is a very long hike up many steps to get to the top. If you are not in good shape you can take thr bus.

    Qingyuan Mountain is the most worthwhile mountain to climb in Quanzhou. On a sunny day, it feels great to climb it and overlook the city. Qingyuan Mountain itself also has many points of view, especially Buddhist and Taoist temples and pavilions, which are large and small. Most of these religious monuments are built close to the mountain body, and huge rocks can be seen everywhere. There are also some scenic spots on Qingyuan Mountain, such as Master Hongyi's Shrine Tower, tangled ancient trees, and sleeping Buddhas carved on Mount Yishan. You can also send a postcard to relatives and friends at the post office near the half-mountain reservoir. The whole mountain is not very high, but the section from Mituoyan to Nantaiyan will be steep and have many steps. If you don't want to experience this physical work, you can take another road. I am a person who likes mountain climbing and self-abuse very much, so I spent a total of 7 hours basically walking the whole Qingyuan Mountain, but in fact, the main attractions of Qingyuan Mountain are mostly concentrated in the northern part of the scenic area, so it is enough to visit it for about 5 hours. In addition, there is a leisure villa behind Nantai Rock on the mountain, which provides food and beverage at a relatively expensive price. But you can also find some local aunts selling stewed eggs and dried beans. They are cheap and delicious.

    Ticket 70, when I first bought the ticket, I thought the price was too high. I thought that I could get to the top of a mountain of 400 meters, which was not worth the price. Wait until you climb down to realize that your idea is too simple, not a mountain, but a mountain! Attention, please, pot friends who want to climb the mountain! __________ Normally not a very physical person, starting from Laojunyan, winding all the way around took more than three hours to reach the mountainside, well, I am too weak. A pot of fried vinegar meat was destroyed in a small shop on the hillside to replenish the energy (looks like the shop opened by father and daughter, very simple person) and to climb up the Tianhu Lake. I have to admit that a vast expanse of water suddenly appeared on the mountain. It was really beautiful and shocking visually, and I felt that it was worthwhile to spend so much time and energy. According to the local people, there are more beautiful scenery up Tianhu Lake. I have no strength to challenge it. There are two choices when you go down the mountain. One is to return to the original road, the other is to walk down the mountain road by yourself (I heard it took someone more than two hours to get to the bottom of the mountain). If you can't walk, you can call a motorcycle. When you come up, you can see many people waiting for work. According to them, they all live in the mountains. The price is not expensive. The driver will take you to a convenient place. This experience made me dare not run to the mountains again this year. Next time I have the chance to challenge and strive for the top!

    Lao Tzu is the first place in the world. The park is very big and it's a whole mountain. We only visit a very small area. I only saw the statue of Lao Tzu and went to the place where Master Hongyi buried his bones. Along the way, I have listened to several guides'explanations, which have profound cultural connotations and a long history. In February, there are not only young flowers in early spring but also red maple slices. It is also a good place for outing. Tickets allow you to drive in or enter several mountain gates a day. At the entrance of the park, I simply consulted the scenic spot, but was warmly received by the porter. I introduced in detail the places we must see in the park and gave suggestions for our family to play. For example, old people who are not good at traveling can rest where they see the statue of Lao Tzu, young people must go to scenic spots and so on. On the way to the park, I also gave a thick introduction to the scenic spot. The strangers could also have such a strong sense in the original world. Thick friendship! Thank you, old man!

    Tiangong worked beautifully and climbed Qingyuan Mountain. He enjoyed the beautiful scenery of Cyprinus carpio City. The mountain was not high, but it was steep and hard to climb. There is a lake on the top of the hill. The most famous statue of Lao Tzu in Qingyuan Mountain is the statue of Lao Tzu under the mountain, which is lifelike and has a history of thousands of years. Climbing to the top of the mountain can overlook the whole picture of Quanzhou City. There are several small restaurants on the hill. The price is not expensive and the taste is good. It's tragic to go down the hill. There is no car along the highway from the lake on the top of the hill. It took two hours to get down the hill.

    The scenic spot is still quite big! Lao Tzu's stone statues also experienced storms! There is still God! At the entrance of the scenic spot! It is the symbol of Qingyuan Mountain and even Quanzhou! On the side stood a stone tablet: Lao Tzu was the first in the world. The sign on the mountain was not very clear. Scenic area tickets include the scenic area transportation fee! If you are not physically fit, you can ride up the hill! Go downhill all the way again! Save a lot of energy!

    The original price is 70, Ctrip 65, half price for the elderly over 60. It's near West Lake Park and Quanzhou Museum. The climb overlooks Quanzhou with beautiful scenery, lush plants, shaded trees, longan trees, lotus mist trees and pomelo trees. There are many beautiful butterflies flying around. The second half of the scenic spot is around Laozi's Tao, the first half is the Buddha of Master Hongyi, and the top is Tianhu Lake. All the way to the toilet is very convenient, but it's dirty. Along the way, there are also small shops, tea shops and restaurants, which are more expensive.
