Qingcheng Mountain

China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
Qingcheng Mountain has been one of the popular tourist destinations of China through years. This mountain is located just to the southwest direction of Dujiangyan and is also known as Green City Mountain. The peaks and the skyline of densely forested slopes of the mountain are thought to resemble city battlements. Nestled with lofty ancient trees are 108 monasteries, temples and pavilions with the highest peak, Laoxiaoding Heaven Top, rising 1,600 meters above sea level.
At the end of the Eastern Han dynasty that lasted from 25 to 220 AD, Zhang Daolin, patriarch of Daoism, preached here, and so Qingcheng is considered to be one of the birthplaces of Daoism in China. Some of the Eastern Han structures and sites still survive after 2,000 years including Jinfu Palace, Zushi Hall and Shangqing Palace together with many cultural relics of Daoism.
Even though the temples, monasteries and pavilions meant the partial loss of its tourist profile due to urbanization, some features of its past times of splendor still remain. The Qingcheng Mountain also enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers, and is one of the most visited places in China.
