The most holy land of Chinese Buddhism, Mount Wutai is rated on both the list of the first group of national scenic spots designated by the State Council, and the list of the Top 10 scenic spots in Shanxi Province. It is as famous as Mt. Emei in Sichuan Province, Mount Putuo in Zhejiang Province, and Mount Jiuhua in Anhui Province, all of which are renowned as the four sacred Buddhist Mountains. Its five main peaks, positioned east, south, west, north, and in the middle, embrace one another with broad and plain terraces rather than forests on their tops. That is why it bears the name “Wutai Shan” (Mountain of Five Terraces). The summit of the northern peak which is famed as being the “Roof of Northern China”, reaches 3061.1 meters (10,043 feet). Besides the religious aspect, the beauty of rising and falling ridges of mountains, exotic rocks, crisscrossed gullies, crystalline waters and towering green forests also gives the mountain its reputation as a colorful and notable scenic resort.
Last week Hongdefa team took a trip to Mount Wutai , and found that there were lots of travelers gathering when we arrived. It turned out July and August is the best time to travel Wutai Mountain, where the air is exceptionally cool, moody mountains make the dojo of the No.1 of the four famous Buddhist mountains into a fresh destination for “heat shelters + meditation + wishing + mountaineering + trekking”.

Our wishing place is precisely the well-known Wuye Temple on Mount Wutai. Wuye Temple is rather small, but there are indeed many pilgrims in Wuye Temple, which really made me shock.The place with smoke is the door of Wuye Temple, and the White Pagoda Temple is just next to the Wuye Temple.
Wuye Temple is located inside the Wanfo Pavilion. There is a Dragon King wearing a golden robe and sitting in the hall of Wuye Temple is the famous Wuye.
People will burning incense early in early morning in the temple without eating breakfast, tell their wishes to Wuye. Normally the wishes no more than 3 wishes and you should votive if the wishes come true.
Votive ways:hanging plaque, sent robes, supply the theater(this is the most solemn manner as seeing theater is one of favorite habit of Wuye,if your wishes come true)
Tips: Wuye will fall asleep at afternoon,so visiting his temple in morning if you want to tell your wishes to him.
