I have always wanted to visit wudangshan (武当山) but is put off by the inaccessibility as it is not so straightforward to reach which also explained why it is still being kept as it is. When I came to know there is a new highway open late last year from Xian, we got our wonderful guide; Bryan to coordinate the... More

It's a wonderful place, with such a history, incredible! But, as they made in Shaolin, everything is corrupted, and they only look for the money (like in all China). Even, some of the monks are fake, they are government workers, that come and go. But it's a place tee once in your life. The ticket is for a full year,... More

I was visiting China with a group seeing the sights and practising Tai Chi. Visiting Wudang is a must for Tai Chi and Martial Arts enthusiasts. It is a stunningly beautiful area with many Taoist temples. It was from here that Tai Chi is said to have originated but who knows. Access to the different areas is only by the... More

This was a bit of a challenge to get to, but worth the trip (4 hour bus ride from Yichang and 2 hours by trian to XiangYang). I did it in two days and saw 7 of the historic locations. I think my entire out of pocket for guide, entrance, lodging and meals was around $100. I have more than... More

One of the most famous Chinese mountains in Chinese history. Great scenery and wonderful relics about Taoism and martial arts.

When travelling around China, Wudangshan should not be missed. This was one of the most memorable experiences from our trip around China. It is nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of the large, busy Chinese cities and visit this remote, peaceful, and spiritual mountain. Absolutely stunning views with tons of ancient temples to explore along the way... More

Where Taoism flourished from the 7th to the 17th century reaching its peak during the Ming Dynasty in the Wudang mountains. You cannot help to be gripped by the magic, beauty and atmosphere of these sites with evocative names such as the ‘Purple Cloud Palace’, the ‘South Cliff Temple’, or the ‘Golden Hall on Tianzhu Peak’. The latter, placed there... More

After watching a China Production Ancient Costume drama series, gave birth to my interest to visit this place. Manage to do it Sept 2012. Arrived at the foot of the mountain mid morning. Welcome by some nice flower patches and a grand archway. Through it, there are shops selling various kind of souvenirs, the most popular kind are Swords and... More

It is something that I remember often, it is something "MEMORABLE". It is something that could change someone's life. It is something that I am not able to describe in words because is more for soul than for brain. If you are around or if you have the great opportunity to be close the Wudang Mountain, DO NOT MISS. Otherwise,... More

Also we where to late on the golden summit so the monastery was closed. Did sea beautiful temples along the way... More
