Charming attractions for every traveller

Mount Tai

About an hour's bus ride away from Qufu, Mount Tai stands as one of China's five great mountains. It is associated with sunrise, birth, renewal, and has been a place of worship and significant ceremonies for at least 3,000 years.

It epitomizes splendid Chinese culture and was listed in the World Natural and Cultural Heritage List of UNESCO in 1987.

Nishan Mountain

The Nishan Mountain is 30 kilometres southeast of Qufu Prefecture, flanked by the calm Yihe River and lush green forest.

A number of Confucius sites are located on the mountain, largely due to the belief that the philosopher himself was born in the Fuzi Cave on the Nishan Mountain.

The mountain also includes eight scenic spots: Nishan Confucius Temple, Wulao Peak, Zhiyuan Stream, Kunling Cave, Guanchuan Pavilion, Zhonghe Ravine and Baiyun Cave.
