Confucius said: “The benevolent delight in mountains, the wise in waters.” Shandong is where the 5,000-kilometer Yellow River joins the sea, migratory birds come to nest in wetlands and lakes, and the seastruck tourists come to holiday on the Jiaodong Peninsula cities and surrounding islands. Mountain ranges span the entire province, whose name translates to “Mountain East”. We’ll teach you how not to get lost on the “bandit mountain” of Liangshan, the best seasons and times to scale Mount Qimeng, and how to get to the sacred sunrise-watching spot, Taishan.
