Although travelers could take public transportation to the ticket office, there was no internal public transportation that they should either drive or walk to the top of the hill. The steps were not so well maintained that it could be slippery during rainy days.

A nice walk up the mountain. Got to see the LaoTzu statue at the bottom and then a walk up to the top. Walk is not that difficult, your standard stone steps of China. Definitely a must see during your time in Quanzhou! :) It is 75yuan though :x Most Chinese tourist attractions are expensive though...so it is pretty standard.

Its a good place to go if you like to have a casual walk up and down the mountains. Great view from above but ones expect to have lots of attraction spots along the way, you will be disappointed. Besides two temples on the tracks, you will be expecting to see tombs of high Ranking Monks and that is about... More

It can prove quite exhausting to cover all the scenic spots in Qing Yuan Shan (清源山) (total area: 62 sq km). Just make sure you don't miss the following: - Lao Jun Yan (老君岩): The symbol of Qing Yuan Shan. It's a statue situated close to the main entrance (you'll know you're at the main entrance if you see a... More

We hired a bus to take us to Qingyuan Mountain on a weekday afternoon. Few visitors and hikers. Peaceful and cooling, with lovely panoramic view of the city. We visited a Buddhist temple where there is a partial stone sculpture of a sleeping Buddha. There is a tea house with alfresco dining, where they served freshly harvested vegetable dishes, with...

This is a place of great religious significance... commemorating Lao Zhi (老子) who is deemed the founder of the Tao religion (道教). Although a tourist attraction with the statue of Lao Zhi (老君岩), it is quite peaceful and serene. Worth a visit if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Excellent place for an evening getaway with the right company. Can drive to the top and then walk up the mountain. Beautiful scene as can see the entire city from the top underneath a huge Brass/Copper statue of the city's freedom fighter

I guess this was an okay thing to see while in Quanzhou, but not much more than just okay. If you keep on walking past the famous statue, you will eventually get up to a point where you will get some nice views of the surrounding areas,
