Ancient Wudang Mountains in Handan, Hebei Province

April 18, 2014 - FOLKLORE TOUR - Post by: WfpaEdit

The Ancient Wudang Mountains, 70km away from Handan City, Hebei Province, has a history longer than the famous Wudang Mountains in Shiyan, Hubei Province. Established as a center of Taoism from the early Tang Dynasty (AD 618-907), the Ancient Wudang Mountains is home to a large-scale ancient building complex. The surviving buildings exemplify the architectural and artistic achievements of China’s secular and religious buildings of the last three imperial dynasties, Yuan, Ming and Qing lasting from 1271 to 1912.

The Ancient Wudang Mountains is famous for its perfect combination of natural and cultural scenery. It is beautiful all year round. In spring, the area is filled with flowers; in summer, the mist wraps up the mountain; in autumn, the smell of sweet-scented osmanthus fills the air; in winter, heavy snow covers the mountain like a white blanket.

The ticket price is 50 yuan and the opening hours are 7:30-18:30. Performances are held regularly throughout the day, including folk songs, folk dances, bamboo dance, stunts and Wudang Kungfu.
