Qian Shan 705 m
Platzhalter

The Qian Shan is situated southeast of Anshan city in the Liaoning Province.

The Terrace of Immortals, the main peak of the mountain, is 705 metres above sea level. The Qian Shan (meaning "a thousand peaks" in Chinese) got its name from the nearly 1,000 peaks. Some of them look like crouching lions and tigers, some like sleeping elephants and coiled dragons. During the Sui- and Tang-Dynasties the mountain was the location for temples and later became a center for Buddhist and Taoist temples. The forest-clad mountain abounds with scenic spots and historical sites. It is a tourist attraction in east Liaoning Province, well known for the "towering peaks, steep rocks and ancient temples".
