Mt. Qingcheng


Mt. Qingcheng is located at the Dujiangyan scenery spot, 50km northwest of Chengdu, Sichuan province. It is one of the ancient cradles of Taoism. It falls under the humid subtropical monsoon climate, with an annual average temperature of 15 centigrade and the trees here are green all year round. So it is reputed for both the brilliant Taoist cultural and paradisiacal natural scenery.
The famous sites among the numerous historic relics are the Shangqing Palace, the Jianfu Palace, and the Tianshi Cave. The Jianfu Palace is the most brilliant site. It stands against the cliff under the Zhangren Peak with an extraordinary bearing. Two halls and three compounds are well- preserved today. In the west of the Jianfu Palace, there is a "natural picture". When you standing on the rocks, the clouds and mist floating under your foot, you may fancy that you are in the fairyland.
Two kilometers towards the north is the major temple of Mt. Qingcheng- the Tianshi Cave. Many famous wood and stone tablets are in here including the Tang Xuanzong's imperial decree and Yuefei's handwriting of Zhuge Liang's famous piece Chu Shi Biao.
