Nice place for hiking and get familiar with Chinese calligraphy :)

Great mountain with superb view. Reachable by bus right from big city centre. Worth to visit, especially if u like walk up the hill for a long time :)

In my 30 years of Travel and 15 years of Being Buddhist i have NEVER been so Horrified and Insulted by the lack of Disrespect of an already classed RUDE culture , My friend and I where going to see the sight as well as pay respects to her mother who had just passed, and walking around thru the magnificent...

We took a car up and were surprised about the amount of people walking on the road up and down the hill, very dangerous. Note that walking will take you a good 4-5 hours and it is not worth it. When we reached the top there was a platform from which you could see the city, that's all. On the... More

The temple and scenery at Gu Shan Mtn make it well worth the trip! We were lucky, the weather was perfect the day we were there, so the scenery was reall nice! The temple was very impressive! We were lucky, we had a person from Fuzhou with us, and they were able to give us a lot of information about... More

As a local Fuzhou guy, I love hiking Gushan growing up. Now on every vacation back home, I always hike Gushan two to three times a week to keep me in shape. I can give advices for those who want to hike the mountain for fun or exercise. There are three trails up to the same destination--west, center and east... More

Want to get out of the buzzling city? Easy reach by public bus? Have some help to get up hill? Well, Gushan mountain is a choice. And the cable car makes it easy! Once u ascend you get an impressive view on the conglomerate called Fuzhou, it's high ways and apartment towers. The downside? Again: too many folks and they... More

This is definitely a beautiful and awe inspiring place to visit. So much to see from ancient times. I was surprised to see how many people were actually walking the trail to the top. There are over 2100 steps with 10 resting stations along the pay. Yes it is very step and I was surprised at how many people were... More

it was our first stop right after my Aunt and Uncle got us from the Train Station! The place is so peaceful, very peaceful despite a few visitors during that weekday. The air was fresh and clean, the plants as alive as ever, the calm and peace that the place emits just stays with you even after days! Hope I... More

close distance to city with a few direct bus lines into the city. Easy hike with amazing city views. If you hike higher and pay an entrance fee, you see a temple with caligraph.

Ok you can get a number of different buses inc. 7 and 73 and it only cost 1 rmb. Then if you want the easy option hop on one of the grey minivans for 7 rmb subject to a full load of 6 people, and they will drive you up to the temple. The temple is worth the effort, as... More
