Fengling cascades, strange rocks, everywhere is the scene, change scenery step by step. The ancients have a poem praised: "Tai Grandma has no vulgar stones, all of them are God-made, as everyone knows, everything is in the chest."

The total area of the scenic spot is 92 square kilometers, which is divided into five scenic spots: Taimu Mountain, Jiulixi Waterfall, Qingchuan Seaside, Sangyuan Cuihu Lake and Fuyao Islands, and two independent scenic spots, Lengcheng Castle and Ruiyun Temple. Have mountains and rivers.

Many natural landscapes, such as stone wonders, caves, streams and waterfalls, as well as rich cultural landscapes such as ancient temples and steles. According to the investigation of geological department, Taimu rock is coarse-grained granite, which belongs to the late Yanshanian period. It is the product of Mesozoic Cretaceous in geological history, which is about 90 million to 100 million years ago.

Because of the change of the crust and the rise of the ocean, the vertical joints of the three groups of east, west, north, South and near horizontal developed, forming a crisscross of cliffs, peaks and caves. After millions of years of wind and rain erosion, water erosion, it slowly formed today's abrupt strange peaks and rocks.

Taimu Mountain was very prosperous in the Tang and Song Dynasties. There were 36 monasteries in the South and north of the mountain. Among them, Guoxing, Ruiyun, Lingfeng, Bajiao, Tianwang and other monasteries were the largest.

Guoxing Temple was built in the four years of Tang and Qianfu (877). There are 360 stone pillars on the site. There are Lengga Pagoda and Shichi in front of the temple. This shows the scale of the temple at that time.

Yuhu Temple is Zhuxi Caotang, a Confucian scholar of Song Dynasty, and Xuanqidong is Zhuxi's hermitage. In the mountains, there are dozens of famous stone inscriptions such as "the first mountain in the world", "the great view of mountains and seas" and "the Buddhist land of Tao Xian".

When visitors enter Mount Taimu, it is like entering a large exhibition hall of contemporary world sculpture artists. There are thousands of giant sculptures, each with ingenuity, some Xiaoren, some portraits.

Such as "Eighteen Arhats Rock", "Immortal Sawboard", "Couple Peak", "Golden Cat and Mouse", "Jade Monkey Mirror", "Nine carp Chao Tian", "Two Buddhas Talk Sutras", "Turtle Climbing Wall", "Wei Tuo Ketian Gate"... 360 scenes are really "Tai Grandma has no vulgar stones, each is like a god-worker".

Especially the scenery of "nine carps chaotic to heaven" and "two Buddhas talking about sutras" is particularly unique. The stone of "nine carps chaotic to heaven" resembles nine carps leaping into space. The stone of "monk preaching sutras" is like a monk in a robe sitting on the Sutra altar holding a written version of the Sutra to the East China Sea.

This group of landscapes stretches for more than 1000 meters. They are magnificent and magnificent. If after a thunderstorm, the mountains and rivers are washed, the water is shining, and the sea is smooth as a mirror, holding out a group of deep and vertical peaks, one bright and one dark, with a strong contrast.

The winding coastline behind the peaks, the scattered islands, the rolling hills and the varied rhythmic terraces enhance the strength and vertical sense of the cliffs, forming a huge watermarking wood carved "mountain and sea view" map, which is both bold and meticulous. "Husband and wife peak" looks different from different angles! Because the peaks stand on top of each other, the rocks stand upright, the mountains rise and the valleys return, there are such wonders as "Echo Valley", "Three Sounds Response" and "Seven Sounds Response", which add infinite interest to visitors.

Because of the special geography, Tai Grandma not only has strange stones, but also has many deep and tortuous caves. There are more than one hundred holes of various kinds surveyed by relevant departments.

It takes 28 days to walk through so many holes, some of which take a whole day as soon as they enter and exit. These holes have their own characteristics, extending to the low places and directly to the sea, which is called "Tonghai Cave". Some of them expand upwards to reach the top of "Nine carps facing the sky", which is called "Tongtian Cave". Two rocks stand steeply, with attached stones, which are called "Seven Stars". Caves; wall-cutting and lane-clipping, see the sky as a line, say "a line of days"; annual dripping, say "dripping hole"; ruffled rocks stacked, the top of the cave is high and low, visitors need to bow their backs, say "three folds"; there are caves, magical unfathomable said "immortal cave"... there are caves in which the sun is visible, the cave can see the sea, caves. In the cave, there are Longtan. The small one can only accommodate a few people to have a rest. The big one can accommodate thousands of people. It can build buildings, terraces, pavilions and pavilions. Every summer hollow Valley Lansheng, dark fragrance floating, sometimes no, it is fascinating. For example, General's 18th Cave is a group of more than ten caves, which can be up, down, left and right. In the cave, we can see the sea and watch the sun. There are strange stones like camels and bamboo shoots. There are various forms, some of them are spiral downward rotation, some of them are upright, and the stone path is remote. There are not only "one line of sky", but also "three lines of sky", many dark springs, and Qing Dynasty. When sunlight enters the water, it reflects on the wall of the cave, just like the flowing clouds dancing, and the wonderful light and color bring visitors into the illusory world. Because of the movement of air flow, some caves are cold and windy, others are warm and warm. It's amazing to stand in one place and stretch out both hands. The feeling of cold and warm is different. In some places, the vines of ancient times struggled for sunshine, rain and dew, survived and stubbornly circled and tortuous, extending along the cave wall, weaving a vigorous "hymn". This "General's Eighteen Holes" takes two hours to get in and out. Visitors should walk in various movements, squatting, climbing, creeping and side. Some people refer to these movements as "Tai Grandma Fitness Exercise", with different postures, laughing and laughing all the way.

"Cloud across the wall thousands of dangers" is the true portrayal of Taimu Qifeng. Grandma Tai has 45 peaks, such as Fuding Peak, Crescent Peak, Bijia Peak, Xianyao Peak and Lianhua Peak, all of which are between 500 and 900 meters. Especially when crossing Niubeishi on Tianmenling Mountain and overpass on Shangtuojiuling Mountain, it is even more dangerous. Some people have to climb, but some people have to explore and win in this adventure. After the dangerous peak, the extreme sight of thousands of miles, the weather is thousands, there is a sense of infinite scenery. Fuding Peak is famous for its shape, and Fuding County's name comes from it. On a sunny day, we climb to the top of the mountain. We can see the vast and boundless sea in the east. We can see all the islands and islands. Crescent Peak is also known as the Sun Peak. It can watch the sun in the morning and the moon at dusk. It is a good place to watch the rising of the moon. "Looking at Fusang Shadow in clothes, watching Tianmen in the sun is not enough clouds." Looking at the sun on Mount Taimu, we can see a spectacle of the red sun rising from the sea with great momentum. This is rare in other scenic spots. Chen Zhongqin's Taimu Mountain diary: "Taste the top of Mount Taishan's Daily View Taihua, see different things, but far away from the sky and the open sea, this is the first place." Watching the moon at night, the mountains are hazy and rocky, and there is another kind of interest.

People who visit Tai Grandma often say that Tai Grandma lacks water scenery, but in fact, Tai Grandma Mountain, the mountain lining the sea, Haituo Mountain, known as the "sea fairy capital", not only looks at the mountains, but also at the sea, reflecting each other, is magnificent. Taimu Mountain has many narrow valleys and caves, with little water on the ground. After a heavy rain, about two hours, surface water flows into the cave, merging into various dark springs and waterfalls, rippling water, tinkling dripping water, such as pipa, zither flick, visitors can listen to spring sounds silently in the cave, enjoy water fun and enjoy endless fun. There are many dark springs in the mountain streams. Because of the echo effect in the cave, tourists can hear different kinds of water sounds in different locations and angles. Some rustle, some rustle and singing are wonderful. It can wash away all the worries in your chest. There are Dongzhuang Waterfall, Xizhuang Waterfall, Jiulixi Waterscape on both sides of Grandma Tai. Longtan Lake has been built at the rear Longtan Cave of Guoxing Temple. Nine carps are facing the sky and eighteen Luohan Rocks are reflected in the water. The scenery of the lake and the mountain is for people to enjoy. There are some mineral water coming out of granite crevices or springs, which is pleasant and refreshing. Therefore, Taimu is not water-free. The water in the cave is more wonderful than the water on the ground. Tai Grandma is foggy in the sea, 360 days a year, foggy season up to more than 100 days, the ancients praised Tai Grandma Mountain: "Variable clouds and fogs make wonders." There are clouds and mists in the mountains, so there are inspiration. Taimu Mountain has strange rocks, dangerous peaks, different caves, dark water, and sometimes light clouds and mists, which makes Taimu's peaks more mysterious. Sometimes the blue gauze Cape makes them more beautiful. Sometimes it is deep in the clouds and mists, and it is ready to breathe out. Sometimes the heavy fog fills the sky, and only the bell sounds deep in the white clouds make people like Wonderland in spring and summer. At the turn of the year or at the beginning of the sunny day after the rain, the mountains and landscapes are all in one place, forming a vast sea of clouds, stretching the horizon directly. At present, the peaks appear among the waves, disappear from time to time, float from time to time, sink from time to time, just like tramping waves. Especially in spring and winter, when the sea fog comes, it is more like the surging waves, the surging waves, and for a time the whole mountain is hidden in the clouds and mists. In autumn, the air is high and refreshing. In the morning and dusk, a few mists cover the top of the mountain, or a few wisps of hills circle around the peaks. The sunshine passes through the mist, bright and harmonious. It is very beautiful.


The Ningde area where Taimu Mountain is located belongs to the mid-subtropical oceanic monsoon climate with warm, humid and distinct seasons. It has many climatic characteristics, such as mountain climate, basin and valley climate. During the same period of spring and summer, the sunshine and temperature are mutually beneficial, the light energy is abundant, the heat is abundant, the rain is abundant, the four seasons are distinct, and the annual average temperature is between 14-19 degrees Celsius. April to December is the best time to travel every year.

If you want to see the red leaves of Taimu Mountain, the best time is in late November: there are two natural maple trees with an area of 250 mu in the ferry at the end of Yangjiaxi River in Xiapu County, southwest of the scenic spot. There are more than 100 mu of silvergrass beach in Linbian River. At the end of autumn and the beginning of winter, the maple forest is red and the silvergrass is snow-white, which is not interesting. The ancient banyan forest between the two Maple forests is even more interlaced, each showing its own posture.
