Heng Mountain

    Located some 45 kilometers (27.96 miles) north from Hengyang City, Hunan. Mount Heng is one of the five sacred Chinese mountains in China. Thanks to its favorable climate, it enjoys a reputation of being "the most outstanding among all five." The mountain stretches out over 150 kilometers (93.21 miles), with a total of 72 peaks.

    Mount Heng features dense forests, flowers, bamboo and serene gullies, all surrounded by the clouds and fog. The place looks like that it comes straight out of a fairytale. It has good scenery throughout all four seasons, with a flower market in spring, a summery sea of clouds, a sensational autumn sunrise and a white winter wonderland.

    This scenic area is also a well known and hallowed Buddhist ground. It has abundant temples including nunneries and Taoist temples. The most notable one is Nanyue Damiao, the largest temple in Wuyue. It was originally built in the Tang Dynasty (618-907), but was destroyed by fire. In the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), it was renovated imitating the design of the Forbidden City.

    The Heng mountain in Hengyang city is also known as the Longevity mountain. Each year, it attracted seas of disples and followers to demonstrate their respect and worship to this sacred mountain.
