Qianling Hill Park Hongfu Temple

Qianling Hill Park Guiyang Guizhou
The Qianling Park is an exceptional forest park in the city of Guiyang. With its lush green forests, its artificial lake, its ancestral temples, its very wildest animals and its paths of promenade, it is regarded as the first park in the south of Guizhou. The Hongfu temple, not far from the top of the Qianling Hill, became the largest temple of Zen Buddhism in Guizhou, well worth the visit.

An Exceptional Forest Park

Located 1.5 km north of the city of Guiyang, the park takes its name from the Hill on which it is based. Huge forest park of 426 hectares, it is often known to be the first park in the south of Guizhou. And because, verdant forest, artificial lake, ancestral temples, melodious birds, monkeys and shady trails make the reputation of the Qianling Hill Park. Resting place for the locals, it attracts many people for a morning or an afternoon of relaxation. The shores of the lake and landscaped areas keep the charm of the place. Tai Chi, card games, Mahjong or simply friendly discussions then fill the shaded places of the Qianling Hill Park. Be aware of the zigzag trail that gets some adventurer seekers lost on the southern slope of Qianling Hill. It takes visitors to remote areas of the Park.

The Hongfu Temple

Built in 1672, it was initially only a temporary wooden hut. The temple flourished over the centuries and today is the most famous Buddhist site of Guizhou. A great temple of Zen Buddhism, it houses some wonders that are somewhat overshadowed by the animation caused by monkeys. And yet, passing within the precincts of the temple, one cannot miss the bell and drum towers. Inside, there is a bell about 1,500 kilograms standing there.

A Pleasant Walk

The less tiring way to discover the Qianling Park is to take the cable car to the entrance of the park and thus arrive above the Hongfu temple. The view of the park and its pavilions below are the prettiest. You then simply go down the stairs to the Hongfu temple and then continue until the rest of the park and the lake.
