Wuyishan, one of China's most beautiful mountain
In the appreciative comment of Wuyi Shan, Lonely Planet says as follows.
Despite its winsome name, Tian Xin Yong Le (the Ever-Happy Temple) is surrounded by drink sellers and an unromantic car park. Still, it's no surprise that the building is perpetually cheerful. The temple in Fujian Province's rugged north sits in a realm of secret valleys splashed with waterfalls and pocked with mysterious caves. Use hewn rock steps to explore, skirting tea bushes and bamboo groves to access Water Curtain Cave and Heavenly Tour Peak. Or take to the water - simple rafts topped with rattan chairs will float you down Nine Twists River, while guides point out the 4000-year-old niches carved in the cliff faces above.
