Best of Scenic China
A quick visit to any of China’s vast cities is unlikely to leave you with much of an inkling that some of the simply stunning and often unique scenery the Middle Kingdom has to offer actually exists! However, it most certainly does and is widely celebrated in the culture as many Chinese scrolls are testament to with their depictions of craggy, misty mountains and gnarled pines.
Sacred Mountains Offer Some of the Best Scenery
In fact much of China’s best scenery is found at the sacred Buddhist and Taoist peaks across the country. Solitude is not usually on offer though as the mountains are popular to visit with well developed paths and facilities allowing access to the many temples and holy places. However, this is what makes some of the country’s best landscapes so appealing as it is scenery with uniquely Chinese characteristics. Remote and uninhabited mountains can be found worldwide but beautiful scenery dotted with temples and easily accessible paths is what makes Chinese scenery so special and iconic.
However, if it is the remote and unspoiled that you are looking for in China tours there are parts of South West China’s Yunnan province, Tibet and the country’s far Western provinces of Gansu, Qinghai and Xinjiang which offer this in an abundance of desert, mountains and open steppe.
