It is no wonder that UNESCO has added Mount Taishan to its World Heritage Site list, as the destination has been a source of inspiration for Chinese scholars and artists throughout the ages. The beautiful scenery was the backdrop to an imperial cult for nigh on 2,000 years and has played an important role in the country's history.

The mountain can be found in the Shandong Province and stretches some 1,533 metres into the air. It used to be a tradition that as soon as an emperor ascended to the throne, he must climb Mount Taishan and pray to their ancestors, with 72 figures from various dynasties carrying out the ritual.

Climbing to the top offers visitors the opportunity to inspect the myriad temples, tablets and inscriptions that have been left by the devoted along the way. Notable things to look out for include the Red Gate Palace, the Azure Cloud Temple and the Buddhist Diamond Sutra.
