Shibaoshan (Stone Treasure Mountain)


 
石宝山   If you are looking for a place where you can hike in the hills and see relatively few other tourists, this is a good place to visit. From the parking lot to the temple in the hills the walk is a pleasant 500 meters (1/3 of a mile). You can keep hiking beyond the temple into the hills if you have time.

Located 7 miles (12km) north of Shaxi, this nature reserve and religious site was one of the first to be officially protected by China in 1982. There are numerous temples and grottoes as well as some fantastic views and walks amongst the old forests. Shibaoshan covers a big mountain area with its main points of interest some times distant kilometers away. Going up to the temple there are some families of monkeys that are wild and its best not to get too close.
