    Gao'er Shan

    by Yso Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Gao'er Shan is a largish hill north of Fushun centre. On the top is a 9 tiered pagoda supposedly built in the Liao Dynasty. Athough it has obviously been renovated since it still looks reasonably original.

    On the climb up to the Pagoda there are pavillions and temples and a rather nice wooden "cloister" with lots of calligraphy engraved stone tablets. many different styles of calligraphy can be seen which make it very interesting.

    Costs only 3 yuan to get in

    Fushun Prison

    The happy side of the fence

    Apart from the prison itself, which they won't let you in to (unless you kick the guards, but then they won't let you back out again), there is also the former prison where they kept Pu Yi, the last emperor. It is now open to the public (for 20Y) and is the closest you'll get to the inside of a chinese prison while being able to walk out again whenever you choose.

    Yong Ling Tombs

    by johnastbury Written Jun 1, 2004
    Containing Marble Inscriptions.

    These Qing dynasty tombs contain the remains of the first Qing Emperor's ancestors. The tomb was built before the Manchu entered and took over China proper. It is located in Fushun county, Xinbin Manchu Autonomous Area.
    One must travel by bus from Fushun city for two hours, and this is a pain, but interesting from the point of getting to see some countryside untouched, by Chinese standards. There are a lot of trees around, and it is quite easy to tell that there have been farmers here for only just over a hundrd years.

    the reservoir

    by Yso Written Jan 14, 2004

    If you do happen to find yourself in Fushun, make sure you head out easty to the reservoir. I'm told its the largest reservoir in China, but I don't know if that's true.

    In any case its a beautiful place togo for a walk and get away from it. You can also stay in a hotel up here
