Songshan Mountain, located 31 miles (50 km) southeast of Luoyang, is one of the five sacred Buddhist mountains in China that, as a state religion, was venerated on the order of the emperor by offering up gifts to heaven. Many architectural monuments stand on the slopes and in the vicinity of the 1440m/4725ft high Songshan. Its a quiet place to visit and you can escape the crowds as you need to walk through the woods on a pleasant path to reach the temples and pagodas.
