Mount Wutai (五台山 Wu Tai Shan) is a Sacred Buddhist mountain in Shanxi Province in China.
Wu Tai Shan means Five Plateau Mountain, and the highest of these stands at 3,058 meters. As one of the four sacred Buddhist mountains in China, it is a popular pilgrimage destination for Buddhists, who regard it as the domain of the Bodhisattva Manjusri - an emanation of wisdom. In addition, with its vast assemblage of stunning scenery, historical and cultural relics and classical architecture, Wutaishan National Park is also a popular destination for tourists with an interest in China's rural cultural heritage. The town of Taihuai is nestled in the mountains at the center of the park and offers a wide selection of accommodation options.
