Mt. Taishan is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the five Taoist sacred mountains in China. It’s standing in the north of Tai’an City in the south of Shandong Province and the main peak rises 1,545 meters above sea level. The mountain boasts both natural scenery and significant cultural sites. In the feudal society, it was frequented by emperors for enthronement, making sacrifices and other important ceremonies.

The traditional climbing route begins at the Red Gate (Hongmen). En route, you will find numberless stone inscriptions, tablets, memorial objects and ancient temples. It’s a very energy-demanding route taking at least 5 hours to reach the top. If you prefer a comfortable trip, take the west route where transfer bus and cable car are available.

At the foot of the mountain is the Dai Temple in the style of an imperial palace. 1.5 hours away from Tai’an is Confucius’ hometown Qufu where tourists have chance to know about every aspect of this great thinker and his family. The Memorial Temple of Confucius, Kong Family Mansion and Cemetery of Confucius are not to be missed. To the north of Tai’an is the provincial capital Jinan, known as the spring city. Baotu Spring Park is the best-known tourist site.
