Famous throughout China for its beauty, the 2,217-meter tall Laojun Mountain is also known as the final resting place of Laozi, the founder of Taoism. To get to the top of Laojun Mountain, travelers can take a 17-minute cable ride from She Shen Ya (the cliff on Laojun Mountain where the air bags were collected) or can walk a 10-kilometer (6 miles) trail. Shi Li Hua Bing, meaning “10-mile painted screen,” is a newly developed tourist spot in the Laojun Mountain Nature Reserve.
The nature reserve is a combination of Taoist culture and natural beauty. The scenic area is scattered with 16 Taoist temples. Six of them have been renovated for visitors.
