Mount Tai

You may ask there are so many many mountains in China like Yellow Mountain, Mount Hua, and Mount Lu to visit, why you recommend Mount Tai? Yes, I have got my reasons.

Regarded as first of the Five Sacred Mountains in China, it was declared to be UNESCO World Natural & Cultural Heritage Site in 1987. Therefore, apart from natural mountain views, Mount Tai presents more cultural sites, like Jade Emperor Peak, the highest point, where you can have a panoramic view of whole Tai’an city and visit the ancient emperors worshiping spots.
