One of the 5 Taoist mountains of Mainland China. Containing 5 climbable peaks called Central, North, South, East and West (??,??,??,?????). The South peak being the highest. Known as the steepest of the 5 Taoist mountains, and also dangerous though there is a maintained trail. Dangerous as there are some activities on the mountain where you can have safety support to walk across very small plank bridges.
Definitely worth visiting!
