Jizushan Mountain is located at Binchuan County and got the name for the three peaks in its front and the hill at its back which looks like a foot of a chicken．The mountain is covered with dense forests and bamboo groves.
Jizu Mountain is regarded as one of the five important Buddhist mountains in China. On the Jizu Mountain, there are thousands of beautiful rocks，hundreds of roaring gullies，striking grotesque peaks, and trees．
Peak Tianzhu, the main peak of the mountain, is 3,240 meters above sea level. From the peak, one can watch the sunrise in the east, beautiful clouds in the south, the vast Erhai Lake in the west and Jade Dragon Snow Mountain in the north.
Zhusheng Temple is situated about 10 kilometers from the entrance gate. It was listed in 1983 by the State Council among the important National Buddhist Temples in the Han area．It is an interesting experience to ride a horse from Zhusheng Temple to Huideng Nunnery.
Jizu Mountain is one of China’s famous Buddhist and Taoist mountains. The area isn’t touristy, and Buddhists come here to worship. And the high peaks have paths that are strenuous to climb, but you’ll find some solitude. There are accommodations at the peak itself and halfway up the mountain.
