Mount Lu (simplified Chinese: 庐山traditional Chinese: 廬山pinyin: Lúshān, Gan: Lu-san) is a mountain in the People's Republic of China, situated south of the city of Jiujiang in Jiangxi Province, near Lake Poyang. Its highest point is the Dahanyang Peak (1,474m above sea level). The mountain is a prominent tourist attraction, especially domestically.

  • The Lushan Botanical Gardens features tens of thousands of plant species.
  • West is the Flower Path which provided inspiration to Bai Juyi, a famous poet who lived during the Tang Dynasty.
  • Between the Yangtze River and Lake Poyang lie the Greater and Lesser Tianchi Lakes, the Jingxiu Valley, and Lulin Lake. On the north bank of the latter is the Lushan Museum, which features pottery and bronzes dating from various periods of ancient China, as well as calligraphy from the Tang Dynasty and paintings from the Ming and Qing dynasties.
  • At the centre (between three peaks), and at an altitude of over 1 kilometer above sea level, is the town of Guling, which is linked by a mountain highway to neighboring spots in the region.
