Summary:

Located at the junction of Fujian and Jiangxi Provinces, in the northeast of Fujian, Wuyi Mountain is one of the nicest spots in this area and one of the most pleasant mountains in all of China. Despite its inland situation, this is an extremely popular area and it can get very busy here. It is a good idea to visit out of season whenever possible.

Early in the Spring and Autumn Period some 2,500 years ago, the Ming (Fujian) people first settled here. Han Chinese have gradually settled here in large numbers over the years and the area is now home to a mixture of nationalities and ethnic groups.

The scenery here is surprisingly spectacular, falling between two major areas: the Jiuqu River and the Thirty Six Peaks that rise up at the top of the mountains. This is archetypal Chinese scenery-picture postcard stuff (green and lush vegetation, red cliff faces and small, preserved villages) that generations of painters, poets and artists have visited for years in an eternal search for inspiration. The air here is wonderfully clean and fresh, particularly pleasant in early evening, when a hazy mist shrouds the mountain summit.

The unique climate in the region is ideal for the growth of numerous variety of plants, which, in turn, provide a second-to-none habitat for different species of rare animals.

Wuyishan

Get around

The local tourist agency can provide a guide and driver for a fee. You will get to see much more. Otherwise you can try the local buses if you are up for adventure.

Use Bus number 6 (2-3rmb): It'll get you everywhere. From the station to the hotel, to the north and South entrances of the Wuyishan reserve. From the station you have to walk into the main street that you look into when you are in front of the station, untill you hit a T-crossing. There you can just flag down any bus 6 on the opposite side of the road, because you need to go the sotuh (the left) on the T-crossing. Don't get a taxi, because they are 30rmb and don't use the meter.

To use the bus service within the wuyishan park you have to pay 85rmb, which not necessary because you can walk to all the main sights and use the local busservice (bus 6) for only 2-3rmb to bring you to each entrance.

See

*  Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe) - This magical and enchanted valley produces the best tea in Wu Yi Shan and is a tranquil and beautiful place. This is an absolute must.

Do

Ride a raft down the Nine Bend Stream (九曲溪). The "rafts" are long tied bamboo rafts with about six seats. Life jackets are provided, although the water is very calm and this does not require any rafting experience or effort on the part of the riders. Two drivers use long poles to steer the craft down the water. The landscape is sensational, with sheer cliffs and tall mountains. A "cruise" down all nine bends takes two to three hours and is highly recommended.

Go to the Lotus Peak entrance. There is no one there! The park officials will say it is not possible, because there are no official busses from the reserve that go there, but you can simply walk take a taxi or motor. Aside from avoiding the masses at the other main sights, you get an amazing view or rural China.

Buy

The area is famous for tea. On one occasion, tea from Wu Yi Mountain fetched over $1000 US a gram at an auction in Shanghai!

If you play the game of Go (wei qi in Chinese), look in the shops downtown for wooden bowls to hold the go stones. These are under 50 RMB ($8) a set and look more-or-less identical to bowls sold in the West for several hundred US dollars. Be careful, however, to get bowls that are large enough. Some of the ones sold here will not hold a full set of stones.

Eat

Try the tea eggs. These are eggs hardboiled in tea, a nice cheap snack found anywhere in China. At Wu Yi Mountain, they are particularly good.

DON'T eat the pheasant! It's charged by the pound and is extremely expensive! Restaurants in Wu Yi Shan are terribly expensive and the choice is limited. Some restaurants serve bear, which you will see proudly displayed with hair still attached, in front of the restaurants.

Go into town around 20h00 when the local foodstands make amazing Fujian dishes for just a few Rmb.
