Home to a famous complex of Taoist temples and monasteries associated with the god Xuan Wu. The Wudang Mountains are renowned for the practice of Taichi and Taoism as the Taoist counterpart to the Shaolin Monastery, which is affiliated with Chinese Chán Buddhism. - wikipedia

I had my preconceptions heading to Wudangshan. Mainly I was concerned with over-commercialization of the place alike something that was done to the Shaolin monastery, which has turned from stuff of childhood dreams to a souvenir supermarket. It wasn't as bad though. The most annoying thing turned out to be buying a ticket and waiting for the bus to take... More

I hiked up the western trail of Wudang Mountain with a large group of adults and children. It was extremely dangerous with many sheer drops of ten to twenty metres and very slippery and narrow paths. Many people slipped and fell. There were hundreds of steep stairs leading to the Daisy Monastery built some 600 years ago. Breathtaking views at... More

My friend and I joined a tour in HK to make a 5 day tour to visit the famous Wu Dang Mountain. I used to consider that those mountains in our homeland were more charm than those in other countries. Our tour included a 3-night-stay at hotels inside the national park. Therefore, we could have more time to tour round... More

This has to be one of the most famous mountain in China where lots of movies and TV were filmed. I started off by hiring a tour guide at the ticketing hall. Only registered licensed guides are allowed to operate here. You cannot find them anywhere else. I then went on with a 2.5 hours ascend. It was exhausting, but... More

The landscape is very beautiful and all the temples are magnificent. An interesting aspect is that they are not museums but operating temples, meaning that one has the opportunity to have a look at the religious functions. A visit is recommended. A negative aspect is that the hotels in the area tend to be substandard. The climbing of the mountain... More

I originally visited Wudang Mountain with a group of tourists for religious purposes as it is best known for its great numbers of Daoist temples. But when I got there, the view offered was not merely enjoyable for pilgrims. The scenery was beautiful, with vibrant colors of green, yellow, and brown as the time of my visit was late October....
