After 1400 million years of geology movement, it forms a matchless granitic geomorphologic landscape. Its sheer peaks, ancient trees and flowers, cascading waterfalls, sea of clouds and mist are known as the four unique scenic features.
After a lengthy winter, spring wakes all nature in Mt. Sangqingshan, all flowers bloom. Between late April and early June, it’s the prime time of admiring flowers. However, as it’s quiet wet at this time of year, tourists must pay attention to local weather forecast.

Summer in Mt. Sanqingshan is between late June and mid－August. As it belongs to highland climate, the temperature differs a lot from the top to the foot, between days and nights. Generally speaking, temperature during the day is about 20 to 27, while during the night, it is 16 to 21. As the air is so fresh and cool, it becomes a famous summer resort.

After the restlessness of spring and summer, the breeze is sweeping gently, the autumn sky is clear and the air is crisp. For me, this is the best season for sightseeing. Autumn here is between late August and mid-Oct. At this period, it’s relatively dry. You won’t be caught by the unexpected rain when ranging the mountain. It will definitely be a pleasant experience when coming here during the Mid-autumn Festival. The moon appears so full and bright; the sky above the mountain is so dark. Whilst gazing at the beautiful moon in the silent mountain, one couldn’t help having his imagination flies.
