WUYI Mountain, in South-East China's Fujian province, on the border with Jiangxi, is in fact a series of red sandstone hills covering about 30 square miles. It is one of China's best known beauty spots.
Green River weaves its way around the red hills. Two of the best sites are of the "Three-Three" and the "Six-Six". The former is the river, which bends nine times as it meanders around the foot of the mountain, and the latter refers to the 36 peaks rising steeply from the river. For more than 1,000 years, poets have flocked there to write praises of its natural beauty.
