Mount Lishan

Mountain Lishan


  is on the north side of Mount Qinling and at its highest peak reaches 1256m above the sea level. The shape of the mountain is said to resemble a horse, hence the name which translates as "Black Horse Mountain".

The mountain first became a popular retreat during the Tang Dynasty when the emperors enjoyed climbing (or more likely being carried in their sedan !) up here and taking in the wonderful view, the Hot Springs and the various statues and pavilions en route.

On the east of the hill is also the spot where the Emperor Xuanzong and his concubine Lady Yang made solemn promises to love one another forever!
