SYMBOL OF THE CHINESE SPIRIT
Esteemed as prior to other four ancient renowned mountains, Mount Tai was called "Daizong" in the ancient times.
The mountain was formed 2,500 million years ago with the
earth's primeval orogenic movement. Located in the central part
of Shandong Province, and in the east of North China Plain,
Mount Tai Range stretches eastwards for more than 200 kilometres along south bank of the Yellow River. The main peak of
the mountain in Tai'an which is 1545 metres above sea level is
located 65 kilometres south of Jinan, the capital of Shandong.
Facing the East sea as well as the Yellow River, it cuts a conspicuous figure in China with its magnificence, loftiness, long
history, numerous cultural relics and natural beauty. It is the first place in China to be listed as the world's cultural and natural heritage site by UNESCO.
