Our guide will pick you up at the trains station and take you to explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site, which includes the Master’s residence, the Confucius Temple, and the Confucius Forest.

After lunch, you’ll drive to Taishan Mountain, one of the five sacred mountains and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where you’ll spend the night in a local guesthouse.

Day 2 – Taishan Mountain

After breakfast we’ll drive up part of the Taishan Mountain, from where you can either take a two-hour hike to the summit, or a leisurely cable car ride. But the hike is worth is, as you’ll be able to explore the numerous temples and pavilions along the way. After enjoying the scenery at the top you’ll hike back down a path where you’ll only meet traditional Taoist pilgrims, and the flood of yellow flowers, which contribute to this being one of China’s most beautiful mountains in China. After your hike, you’ll have a chance to rest your tired legs on the overnight train back to Beijing.
