Sōngyáng Academy information
Lonely Planet review
At the foot of Tàishì Shān sits one of China’s oldest academies, the lush and well-tended Sōngyáng Academy, a building complex which dates to AD 484 and rises up the hill on a series of terraces. In the courtyard are two cypress trees believed to be around 4500 years old – and they’re still alive!
Both bus 2 and bus 6 (¥1) from Dēngfēng run to the Sōngyáng Academy.
