Weibao Mountain: The Cradle
of Nanzhao Kingdom
Weibao Mountain (Mt. Towering Treasures)
is located in the south of Weishan County about 70 km. north
of Dali. The mountain looks like a crouching lion who turns
its head back and looks at the county seat and the belt-like
Guajiang River in the mist. The giant dam of Huanglizui Reservoir
at the foot of the mountain is like the lion's dressing table,
and the placid water the mirror.
Weibao Mountain was the place where Xinuluo,
the head of Mengshe Zhao during the early Nanzhao period,
rose to power, and it was also an important Daoist mountain
in Yunnan. Undulating and magnificent hills are covered with
dense forests and there are more than 20 temples scattered
over the mountain, yet now, only the Dragon Pond Temple, the
Jade Emperor Pavilion, the Old Man Temple, the Twin-Crane
Temple, Daoyuan Palace and the Hidden Spring Cave remain.
The renowned places, namely the Dragon Pond with Spring Willows,
the Ancient Daoist Temple in Blue Haze, the Scholars'Recitation
Platform and the Spring Hidden in Cave are the best scenic
spots for tourist to linger on.
