Qingdao Photos: Laoshan

December 8, 2010 in Photos by Steven

The Laoshan (崂山) mountains east of Qingdao (aka Mt. Lao) are famous throughout China for spring water and Daoism. Fantastic rock formations, magnificent pools, picturesque ocean views, and an ancient historical atmosphere make Laoshan a great place for hiking, camping, and sightseeing. Good news for those living in Qingdao: Laoshan is a short ride away by bus, car, or bike.

It’s no wonder why the early Daoists chose this place to set up temples such as Taiqinggong and Shangqinggong (home of Praying Mantis Kung Fu).

Please note that Laoshan district contains the Laoshan mountain range and is also a growing part of the city of Qingdao that is home to the Qingdao International Convention Center, Qingdao Museum, Old Stone Man (aka Shi Lao Ren/石老人), and the Qingdao Grand Theatre. For more info, see the Laoshan disambiguation page on Wikipedia. Check out a set of photos taken in and around the mountains of Laoshan.
