Brief of East Tianmu Mountain
Located in Lin’an city, northwest of Zhejiang province, East Tianmu Mountain is 25km away from the downtown Lin’an and 68km away from Hangzhou city. With an elevation of 1478m, Tianmu Mountain consists of two major summits – the East and West Tianmu Mountain with 10km distance in between.
A spring on the top of each summit resembles an eye watching the sky. The East Tianmu Mountain has been well developed and divided into three scenic sections: East Waterfall Grand Canyon, West Waterfall Forest and Zhao Ming Temple.
The East Waterfall Grand Canyon is the most typical ecological canyon in Tianmu Mountain range with a full length of 1.2km. Covered with prosperous plants, the interior of the canyon is very cool and quiet. The East Cliff Waterfall, as high as 86m, is one of the spectacles of the whole canyon.
The West Waterfall Forest consists of the West Cliff Waterfall and the Wan Song Lin. The overall drop of the West Cliff Waterfall reaches more than 360m. Wan Song Lin is actually a wide original forest rooted in rocks, presenting a grand Chinese ink painting with waterfalls, ancient trails and grotesque pines.
With more than 1500 year long history, the Zhao Ming Temple dates back to the Liang Dynasty(502 AD－557AD)and now is still prosperous.
