Gateway to Wutaishan Shanxi Province China

Scroll down to content


The most holy land of Chinese Buddhism, Mt. Wutaishan lies in Wutai County in Xinzhou Region, Shanxi Province. It is rated on both the list of the first group of national scenic spots designated by the State Council, and the list of the Top 10 scenic spots in Shanxi Province.

The Temple Gate 5kms from the town is the entrance to the national Resort Park. You pay a fee to enter the Gateway and then the National Park.
It is one of China’s 4 Sacred Areas for Buddhism. There are 120 Buddhist Temples in the Park.
Mt. Wutaishan covers an area of 2,837 square kilometers (1,095.4 square miles), and its five main peaks, positioned east, south, west, north, and in the middle, embrace one another with broad and plain terraces rather than forests on their tops. That is why it bears the name “Wutaishan” (Mountain of Five Terraces). With the average altitude over 1,000 meters (over 3,281 feet), its apex, the summit of the northern peak which is famed as being the “Roof of Northern China”, reaches 3061.1 meters (10,043 feet).
