Traveling in China: Mount Sanqing in Jiangxi Province

San Qing Shan, read from right to left

Last week I took part in my university’s compulsory study trip to Jiangxi Province. We traveled 11+ hours in a train to the north and spent just three days in “West of the River” as the name of the province is translated. The best destination our tour guides took us was the Mount Sanqing.

If you want easy climbing (in China that means climbing the stairs to the top) but amazing views, then Mount Shanqing is great for you. You can take the cable car to the top and do an easy three-hour walk on top before coming down with the same cable car. Of course the are other routes as well, if you want to see more and stretch your legs.

I’ll let photos speak for them selves, but you can find more information at Travel China Guide.

These locks with carvings were on the love road that had 299 steps. 299 means love forever and according to the sign if you walk it from start to finish, you will be together forever. But the love road wasn’t easy, it has some pretty steep steps!

    Did you take these pictures yourself? They’re awesome and the scenery is magnificent!

    (P.S. I think Jiangxi means “west of the river”.)

    Hi T!

    Yes I did took the photos myself, thank you. But in this field I’m still just a beginner, there is so much to learn!
