Kunyu National Forest and Taixu Temple
Located in Muping District of Yantai with soaring ridges and peaks, and aged trees shooting in the sky. Home to a variety of trees including cherry, apple and apricot, as well as streams and waterfalls, it is a regional tourist destination complete with hiking trails, picnic areas, and souvenir shops. The highest peak, Taibo, stands at 923 m high; and the biggest waterfall, Nine Dragons Pond Waterfall, looks silky from a distance. One cave in the forest is said to be where the Quanzhen School of Taoism was born. Taixu Palace, the home temple of Qianzhen, was built in 1191.
