Beijing to Shanghai Sights

Sledgehammer Rock (Bangchui Feng)

  • Geological Site

Fodor's Review

A chairlift ride or a 35-minute hike leads from Pule Temple up through lovely hillside to this remarkable rock protrusion that spawned a local legend: if the rock should fall, so will the virility of local men. In fact, this unusual geological feature probably played a part in Emperor Kangxi choosing Chengde to establish his summer retreat.
