Located on the southern bank of the Yangtze River south of Jiujiang city in northern Jiangxi province, the whole scenic area of Lushan Mountain covers an area of 302 square kilometers, with the 1,474-meter Hanyang Peak as its highest summit. Featuring magnificent peaks, strange stone formations, unique waterfalls, flourishing trees, and many historical sites, the mountain is labeled as one of the most famous sites in the country and was included in the UNESCO world heritage list in 1996.
