Mt. Lushan Scenic Spot

Towering beautifully and majestically above the waters of Lake Poyang, with the Changjiang River flowing by just to the north, stands Mt. Lushan, its peaks rising 1,474 meters above sea level. It is one of the most famous summer resorts in China, and was listed as one of the World Natural Heritages by the UNESCO.

Mt. Lushan is attractive for its spectacular waterfalls, sea of clouds, precipitous peaks, oddlyshaped pines, deep caverns, and traces of glaciers. It is cool in summer. The mountain is covered with silver-white snow in winter.

Five Old Men Peak
Standing 1,436 meters above sea level, the peak has the most splendid scene in Mt. Lushan. The narrow path leads to the top of the peak, where one can enjoy a panoramic view of Poyang Lake amidst the sea of clouds.

It is the best place to watch sun rise and the sea of clouds from mid-October through April. As the sun rises above the lake, the whole mountain is bathed in brilliant morning light.

Sandie Spring
Falling down from the east of the Five Old Men Peak, Sandie Spring is the largest waterfall in Mt. Lushan.

Botanic Garden
Sandwiched between Hanpo Ridge and Mt. Dayue, the Botanic Garden was founded in 1934, the oldest of its kind China. There are more than 3400 species of plants. It collects over 100, 00 samples of plants at home and abroad, and has established ties with more than 50 countries.
