Places in China — Beautiful Sceneries and Exceptional Cultural Attractions

There are many attractive Chinese places that are worth visiting, from extraordinary feats with great historical and cultural values to stunningly beautiful natural scenic areas with fascinating legends.

Five Great Mountains


In the Chinese creation myth, Pan Gu’s head and limbs incarnated into the Five Great Mountains after he departed.  


They are divine, magnificent, and spectacular, and they were believed as the path to heaven or the residence of different deities. 

Therefore, in those great mountains, emperors held grand ceremonies to worship heaven and pray for blessing, and Taoists and Buddhists built temples to practice.


In addition, mountains seem eternal, compare to human history; hence, they also have accumulated lots of folktales and legends that passed on from generation to generation for thousands of years. 

Therefore, besides amazing natural scenes, every mountain’s origin, and historical and cultural values are interesting as well.
