The Wudang Mountains in the northwest of Hubei province are subject to a reign of red colors during autumn, treating visitors to a sea of red leaves.

The Wudang Mountains are beautiful all year around. The golden seasons for visitors are spring and autumn due to the moderate temperature. For photographers, spring, autumn and winter are the best time to catch Wudang's charming scenery.

In spring, blooming flowers stretch to the horizon. In autumn, the mountains are cloaked in red leaves. In winter, heavy snow covers the mountains like a white blanket. From afar, the scenery resembles a beautiful, traditional Chinese landscape painting.

Tianzhu Peak, the main peak, which is 1,612 meters above sea level, is just like a column supporting the sky. Around Tianzhu are 72 peaks, 36 rocky cliffs, 24 streams, three pools, nine springs and 10 lakes.
