LUSHAN 庐山 TRAVEL GUIDE

Lushan is another favourite mountain to visit, both in the ancient past and more recently by the British who built a hill station here and some of that colonial architecture can still be seen. It was here during 1946 the U.S. special envoy General George C. Marshall met with the Nationalist Chiang Kia-Shek to discuss the role of post-WWII China. Not to be outdone, it has since become a favoured retreat for Communist Party officials.
