Other natural and cultural places of interest include Sihan Tianshi Mansion, Baihe Lake, Guigu Cave, Xianglu Peak, Sanyang Dongfu, Xiangshan Academy (one of the four major academies during the Southern Song Dynasty), the site of the revolutionary base in Northeast Jiangxu and Shangqing Ancient Town.

Mountain

Located in the outskirts of Yingtan City, the Mount Longhu Scenic Area is the birthplace of Taoism, where the Taoist founder Zhang Daoling practiced and attained “the Way” (discovered the “Tao”). Mount Longhu is similar to Wuyi Mountain in appearance; both are classic examples of the danxia topography, a landform of red rock cliffs unique to China. Mount Longhu has been designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It is an awesome feeling to look up from your perch on a traditional bamboo boat on the Luxi River and see the dramatic mountain scenery on both sides. You will be captivated by the sight of the hanging coffins of the ancient Yue people and their demonstration of placing them.
