Mount Taishan: With its main peak rising 1,545 meters above sea level, in central Shandong Province, has, since ancient times, been a mountain held in high esteem by the Chinese people. It is known as the ˇ°First of the Five Sacred Mountainsˇ±, all situated on the Central Plains of the country. It ranks third among the five mountains in terms of height. Its reputation comes mostly from its cultural position. According to historical records, Mount Taishan became a sacred place haunted by emperors to offer sacrifices and meditate in the Zhou Dynasty over 1,000 years before the Christian era. A total of 72 emperors were recorded as visiting it. Men of letters also came to acquire inspiration, to compose poems, write essays, paint and take pictures. Hence, a great many cultural relics were left on the mountain.
Day 04 Departure from Jinan (Breakfast + Lunch)
Visit the Daming Lake, Shandong Provincial Museum and Baotu Spring. Transfer to the airport and see you off.

Daming Lake: Located in the northeast of the central part of Jinan City. Daming Lake covers an area of 46 hectares in an 86-hectare garden. Formerly known as "Lotus Seed Lake" and "West Lake", the lake got its current name in the Jin Dynasty and it was not until the Ming Dynasty, when the city wall was restored, that the lake took the form we see today. The lake, with a history of over 1400 years, is fed by waters from many springs, including the Pearl Spring, the Washing Ying Spring and the Prince's Residence Pool, converge in Daming Lake, and the water here neither rises substantially during rainy days, nor dries in drought. Willow trees planted along the shore and 40 hectares of lotus flowers provide additional color, while it is considered a treat to watch the autumn moonlit reflection of the Thousand Buddha Mountain in the lake's lapping waters.
