Mount Sanqingshan is located in the northeast of Shangrao County in Jiangxi Province, which is known as “The top peak and the best place in the world.”
The main peak is named Yujing Peak and is 1,817 meters above sea level.Mount Sanqingshan got its name because the Yujing, Yuhua and Yuxu peaks are lined just like the “Three Pure Ones” (Yuqing, Shanqing and Taiqing) sit on the mountains. Mount Sanqingshan experienced a geological movement that lasted 1.4 billion years before the rare granite peak landforms were finally formed. Odd-shaped peaks and spectacular stones, ancient trees and famous flowers, splendid springs and waterfalls, and cloud seas and mist are known as the four wonders of the mountain. Further more,Mount Sanqingshan also characterizes itself by its natural mountain viewand the Taoist manmade landscapes. Forty-eight odd-shaped peaks, 52 strange stones and more than 500 landscapes have been developed.
In August, 1988, Mount Sanqingshan was approved by the State Council to become a key national scenic spot, and it covers a total area of 229 square kilometers with its highest peak,Yujing Peak, standing at 1,817 meters above sea level.
