Lónghǔ Shān (龙虎山) is billed as a natural Taoist wonderland, welcoming visitors of all ages to find 'The Way'. While the family-centred entertainment – gentle raft rides, climbing shows, miniature train and 4D cinema – make passable fun, the real draw is the park's location by a winding river, where clusters of red sandstone peaks overlook grazing water buffalo and solitary herons. It's an easily packaged taste of the lush Jiāngxī countryside.
During the Song dynasty (960–1279) Lónghǔ Shān became the centre of the emergent Zhèngyī sect, which claimed to represent the teachings of religious Taoism’s founder, Zhang Daoling (34–156). Together with the Quánzhēn sect, Zhèngyī Taoism was one of the most prominent schools of Taoism in late imperial China, and there were more than 100 temples and monasteries here before the Cultural Revolution swept into town.
