Review of Jiaoshan Mountain

Jiaoshan Mountain
Reviewed October 14, 2012

This is a AAAA national tourist site that receives little publicity. The ferry and entry fee to the island are 60rmb. The ferry is mostly standing only but it is a two minute trip. There is a temple, a pagoda, a hill climb, rock gardens, an old fort, a forest of stelae and numerous other nooks and crannies to explore on the island. Take a picnic basket and this makes a great day trip. Don't forget the mosquito repellent. The view on one side of the island is slightly marred by a power station across the river but otherwise there is plenty of nature to enjoy.

Jiaoshan is actually an island in the Yangtze River. A ferry will take you to the from the bank to the island. In the past there was also a cable car but it has been dismantled.

Qing emperor Qianlong (1736-1796) came to Jiaoshan and said he preferred Jiaoshan to Jinshan, the other famous hill of Zhenjiang. It is a nice place for a walk in a natural environment. Climb the hill to reach the pagoda on its top is a good exercise. In addition it is an opportunity to discover an ancient fort, equipped with cannons, to defend Zhenjiang from enemies arriving from the River. This fort was built at the time of the first opium war in 1840. These guns were used in 1842 against British gunboats but did not prevent the British from landing and the fort fell.

Jiaoshan still houses an 1800 years old Buddhist monastery, the Dinghui monastery,

Jiaoshan is also famous for its Forest of Steles. Around 400 of them can be seen there, some dating back to the Han dynasty.
