Song is world-renowned as the Ancestral Court of Chan Sect, Shaolin Kungfu of China, and Zen Doctor of Shaolin, with its monks dedicated to the development and succession of Chan Buddhism, martial arts, and medical research for more than 1,500 years.
When you climb Mt. Song, you can take in a spectacular view of towering rocks and lush greenery, while enjoying the pleasant sounds of birds and flowing water. It offers many spectacles including the striking sunrise and sunset and brilliant stars at night.
