📍Mount Tai'an, Shandong - China 🇨🇳 @qingdaodiscovery .. that 'I'm on top of the world feeling'
The UNESCO protected Mount Taishan, probably the most beautiful and sacred mountain in China, and one you may have not heard so much about.
It forms one of The Five Great Mountains of China, but not just that, it is considered to be the most sacred of all of these, and plays an important role in Chinese history and folklore. It is said that if you reach the peak you will live to a 100 years old!
For 3000 years, emperors have climbed Mount Taishan to be blessed by the gods, along with writers, poets and artists to witness its beauty.
Its a place packed with history, and untold stories - in 219BC the Qin Emperor informed the gods of his success in unifying all of China from atop Mount Taishan.
Confucius himself scaled the peak, in which he remarked “The World is Small” from the peak, to give you an impression of the view. If Confucius himself was impressed, we guarantee you will be!
Dotted along the paths to the top are numerous temples, shrines, inscriptions and monuments dedicated to past travelers and emperors who have scaled its peak.
