As a unique mountain, Mount Lushan can be best described with the poem:“The true face of Lushan is lost to my sight, for it is right in this mountain that I reside.” However, a closer look at its history shows the extraordinary relationship it has had with the progress of Chinese civilization. It is safe to say that Lushan is one of the birthplaces of Chinese civilization.[Photo by Jia Yue for]

Situated in the northern part of Jiangxi province, Mount Lushan is one of China’s most renowned mountains. Lushan National Park, which was inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1996, is a prominent tourist attraction that lures millions of tourists each year.
