Mount Li Forest Park

Last updated by david at 2014/5/3

Mount. Li, a north-side branch of the Qinling Mountains, reaches 1256 meters and over 20 km long from east to west. From a distance, the mountain is spectacular and imposing as it appears like a bold stallion about to gallop. The mountain also has been described as being so attractive and charming that there are now many folk tales attached to it.

The mountain is home to some ancient and historic buildings. Among them is the Laojun Palace and the relics of Huaqing Palace Court. It once served as the sacred place for worshipping Laozi, the founder of Taoism.

Another is Bingjian Pavilion, a place in memory the Xi'an Incident on 12, Dec,1936, General Zhang Xueliang and Yang Hucheng ordered his army to arrest their president to persuade the leader to unite the whole country to fight against the Japanese invasion.

Standing atop the Mount. Li, one can enjoy the magnificent sunsets and sunrises that will make your visit memorable.

I suggest you climb up the mountain if you can. Along the way you will get to know the history of Xi’an Incident in 1936 and get a panoramic view of Huangqing Hot Spring. There is also cable car available for going up the mountain, or you can drive.
