Beijing to Shanghai Sights

Thousand Buddha Mountain (Qiānfóshān)

Updated 05/28/2013

Fodor's Review

On the southern outskirts of the city is Thousand Buddha Mountain, which gets its name from the multitude of Buddha images chiseled into the cliffs since the early Sui Dynasty. It is still the focus of religious festivals, although many of the original statues have been lost to history, replaced by modern reconstructions. Getting to the top of the hill requires a 30-minute walk or a cable car ride (Y25 round-trip). Either way you'll be rewarded with a good view of Ji'nan—air

quality permitting. For kids, there's an excellent slide to whiz back down to the bottom.
