The world’s most dangerous Chinese temple-Mount Fanjing, or as it is called in Chinese, Fanjing Shan is located in southwest China. Mount Fanging, more than 8200 feet high, was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2018. Apart from being a natural wonder, the area also has a number of Buddhist temples.
Mount Fanjing is considered a holy place in Buddhism and its name means “Pure Land of Brahma”. Its highest point is known as the Red Cloud Gold Summit, which is located at the top of two temples and has a narrow stone bridge between them. Going to Fangjing Mountain is not easy. The daily bus ride to the mountain, about 12 miles from Tonghran, takes about 90 minutes. Limited accommodation is available in the area.
However, its relatively isolated location means that it is home to a variety of flora and fauna, including the rare Guizhou Golden Monkey and the Chinese giant salamander. There are over 2000 species of plants and trees in this area, many of which are unique to this place. However, this isolation can be a blessing to the modern traveler. Although Fanjing Mountain is a popular tourist destination, most tourists do not see it.
The top of the mountain can be reached on foot and many pilgrims and visitors do so. Climbing is difficult for those with a faint mind. There are parking lots along the way as well as some refreshing cabins.
According to legend, there are 8888 steps to the top. So if you can take it to the maximum, the views are spectacular. Otherwise you can reach a nearby open space by a cable car called the Mushroom Hill. Mount Fanging is a beautiful, quiet and unique ecosystem that can bring a refreshing and spiritual change to those who lead busy lives in big cities.
