Welcome to Wutai Shan

A powerful sense of the divine holds sway in Wǔtái Shān and the port-walled monasteries – the principal sources of spiritual power – find further amplification in the sublime mountain scenery.

The forested slopes overlooking the town eventually give way to alpine meadows where you’ll find more temples and great hiking possibilities. Wǔtái Shān is also famed for its mysterious rainbows, which can appear without rain and are said to contain shimmering mirages of Buddhist beings, creatures and temple halls.
