Jiangxi - Lushan

    In December 1996, Lushan National Park was included in the list of World Natural Heritage by UNESCO.

    Lushan is situated in the southern part of Jiujiang city in Jiangxi Province. Solitary and imposing, it towers over the southern bank of the Yangtze River, leaving behind its shadows upon the Boyang Lake.
    Nature has excelled herself in such a spectacular lone mountain. As a result of tremendous rubbing and grinding of glaciers, its grotesque peaks and cragged cliffs look all the more precipitous.
    The enveloping clouds and mists make it very hard to define the true shapes of the billowing peaks and ridges. The rapid streams cascade down and form numerous deep pools and hanging waterfalls. The lush mountain alongside with a crystal clear glimmering lake is picturesque. Mysterious and enchanting sceneries nestle in the secluded valleys and deep ravines. To describe the infinite variety of fantastic shapes of Lushan Mountain, Sudongpo (a famous Chinese ancient poet) wrote in his poetic masterpiece:" I can't tell the true shape of Lushan, because I myself am in the mountain!"
Wangjianting (Pavilion of Watching the River):
    It perches atop a perilous cliff soaring up from Jiandao Ravine and offers an ideal place to watch the Yangtze River. Far beyond the mouth of the Ravine, the Yangtze River resembles a silvery dragon coming out of nowhere and rolling on wave upon wave. On the River, white sails scatter about like little dots clearly discernible. A few steps from the Pavilion, there's a rock overhanging the fathomless ravine. It's breathtaking to stand there and gaze down.
Dragon Head Cliff:
    Besides a craggy cliff, it springs up some thousand feet out of the ground, rearing in the sky like a dragon head. From top down, it's inlaid with protruding grotesque stones and overgrown with upside down pines. Standing at the top, one can enjoy a bird's eye view of the Tiechuan Peak and hear the surfing of wind in the pine forest mingled with roaring of the waterfalls in the Stone Gate Ravine.
Three Tier Spring:
    Originating in Dayue Mountain, the spring angles around the backside of Wulaofen (Peak of Five Old Men) and pours into Jiudiego (Nine Tier Gully), crashing twice upon huge rocks, and then converges into a torrent, and drops once again, splashing and throwing about millions of water beads. Driven by the gully wind, the tiny drops dance in the misty air, sparkling in the sunlight, and falling like countless dazzling pearls.
Donglin Monastery:
    Built in the 9th year of Taiyuan reign in Eastern Jin Dynasty (384 AD), it was one of the oldest monasteries in Lushan, and also the birthplace of Buddhist Pure Land Sect (Lian Sect).
