Mount Tai (Tàishān)

Mount Tai (Tàishān) Review

Reaching 5,067 feet above sea level, Mount Tai is the most venerated of the five sacred mountains of China. If you are keen to reach a ripe old age, legend has it that climbing Mount Tai means you'll live to 100. It is possible to climb the steps to the summit and back down in a day, but spending the night on the mountain is also an option. The classic photo—sunrise over the cloud-hugged peaks—is actually a rare sight because of the mist.
