Wuyi Mountain is one of China’s best known beauty spots. A green river weaves its way around the red hills. Two of the best sites are of the “Three-Three” and the “Six-Six”.

Wuyi shan Mountain

The Wuyi Palace is the oldest palace in the Wuyi Mountain. Situated at the foot of the Great King Peak, the Wuyi Palace was first built in the Tianbao years (742-755 AD) of the Tang Dynasty and expanded to include more than 300 halls in the Song Dynasty.

The Nine-Bend Stream is in the south of the Wuyi Mountain Scenic Area. The stream rises in the Sanbao in the south of Huanggang Peak and meanders eastward into Xingcun Village, forming nine bends after entering the Wuyi Mountain Scenic Area, where the stream zigzags downward. That’s why it’s named “Nice-Bend Stream”.

Today you’ll visit to A Thread of Sky, Tiger-Roaring Peak Water-Curtain Cave and Eagle Beak Peak, and then take afternoon bullet train back to Xiamen.

A Thread of Sky: Frequently shrouded in clouds and mist, it towers aloft over clusters of peaks. Ascending to its top, one feels as if traveling upon a sea of clouds high up the sky. Hence it becomes the most famous spot of Wuyishan.

The Water Curtain Cave is the biggest rock cave in the Wuyi Mountain Scenic Area. Located in the north side of Zhangtang Brook, the cave is formed due to the subsidence of the relatively soft rock strata of the horizontal rock strata as a result of flowing water erosion.

Eagle Beak Cliff, several hundred meters westward from the Heavenly Cart Frame, there can be seen a huge rock shaped like an eagle. Eagle Beak Cliff is a cliff rock of one integrated mass, being naked on the top and with the eastern edge standing out; it is sharp and crooked like a beak.
