In the South-Eastern part of Shandong Peninsula, is one of the most famous attractions of China, which is a unique national Park called Laoshan. The center of this place is considered a sacred mountain of the same name, which for several centuries was venerated by the representatives of Taoism and is still considered a place of special energy.

In the Northern part of the Park, visitors can see the picturesque district of Battusai with many cascading waterfalls, streams, ponds, ancient trees and arched bridges. The beauty of these places impresses tourists from all over the world. Especially at a shared natural landscape stands out waterfall Pool Dragon flowing down along the stone wall, creating an interesting sound effect.

Also quite a popular attraction of the Park is the cave of Buddha Naluoyan created in natural conditions for centuries.

On top of Laoshan are healing mineral springs, the water of which is able to cure many diseases.
