Mount Jiuhua, One of the Four Sacred Buddhist Mountains in China

Mount Jiuhua, located at Qingyang County, Chizhou City of Anhui Province, is one of the four sacred Buddhist mountains in China, together with Mount Wutai in Shanxi, Mount Putuo in Zhejiang and Mount Emei in Sichuan. Mount Jiuhua is dedicated to Ksitigarbha (Chinese Pinyin: Dizang), a bodhisattva and protector of beings in hell realms according to Mahayana Buddhist tradition. This holy land is listed as “National AAAAA Tourist Attraction” and reputed as “Buddhist Heaven for Lotus Flowers”.

Traveling to Mount Jiuhua can not only immerse in the breathtaking natural beauty, but also have deep understanding about Chinese Buddhism and Mount Jiuhua’s profound culture.

Historical & Cultural Mountain. Mount Jiuhua originally called Mount Jiuzi in Liang and Chen Dynasties in Song Dynasties. A legend says that the famous poet Li Bai in Tang Dynasty came to Mount Jiuhua several times, when he saw the shape of 99 peaks like a blossom lotus and wrote down the poem “Magic is divided into two branches, sacred mountain generates nine glories” (妙有分二气,灵山开九华). Hence, Mount Jiuzi changed into Mount Jiuhua which has been using till today. After Li Bai, there were numerous scholars, poets and litterateurs came and left great works. Even, the emperor Kangxi in Qing Dynasty inscribed “Holy Land of Mount Jiuhua” (九华圣境). Travelers can enjoy the stories from ancient academies and other historical sites.

Buddhist Holy Land with over 1600 Years. “A mountain is not famous for its height but for its holiness”. In 401 AD in Eastern Jin Dynasty, the monk “Beidu” from old India came to Mount Jiuhua to build temples and preach Buddhism. In 719 AD, Kim Qiaoque, a Silla (today’s South Korea) prince came to Jiuhua Mountain and cultivated himself for 75 years. He died at 99 years old and his corporeal body stayed intact. Because he was very similar in appearance to Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, the monks here believed Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva was reincarnated in him. Hence, Mount Jiuhua became the place to hold rites for Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva.

Breathtaking Natural Scenery with 99 peaks. Jiuhua Mountain is reputed as “the First Mountain in Southeast China” with magnificent peaks, murdering streams, bizarre rocks, beautiful waterfalls, seclude caves, etc. Among the 99 peaks, nine famous ones are outstanding, including Tiantai Peak, Tianwang Peak, Shiwang Peak, Lianhua Peak, Duxiu Peak, Luohan Peak, Wulao Peak, Fuhu Peak and Furong Peak.

Getting from Yunnan to Jiuhua Mountain (Period: May 2017)
1. What is the best way to get from yunnan to jiuhua mountain?
2. Are there any trekking available at jiuhua mountain?
2017-01-31 02:02
Dear Eugenia Tan,

Warm greetings from Chengdu, China!

Since Yunnan is far from Jiuhua Mountain, about 1930 kilometers away. The best way to get from Yunnan to Jiuhua Mountain is by air. You can fly directly from Kunming (the Capital of Yunnan) to Chizhou Jiuhuashan Airport and then drive about 30 kilometers to Mount Jiuhua.

If you want to do some trekking, you can hike up from Huacheng Temple to Longevity Palace, also hike up to Tiantai Peak instead of taking Tiantai cable car. These belong to the light hiking which are also classic way to pay pilgrimage. If you need some heavy trekking, please feel free to tell us and we’ll design the one for you.

Have a nice day!!!
