Known as Longwang Mountain in ancient times, Mount North Wudang in the Lyuliang Mountains, central Shanxi province, is a holy site for Taoists.
The mountain, which has a forest coverage rate of more than 70 percent, is steep and forbidding. The peak is surrounded by cliffs, with only one 1,450-step ladder available for climbers.
Mount North Wudang is famous for its strange stones, especially the 5-ton stone standing on the edge of one of its cliff, which appears to be about to topple over.
