On the northern slope of Gaolan Mountain in Lanzhou stands an over-two-thousand-year scenic spot, Five Spring Mountain Park, renowned for its five reputed springs and ancient Buddhist architectures. It reaches 1,600 meters above sea level and covers 267,000 square meters, housing more than 10 building complexes of Ming and Qing Dynasties, plus hilly landform and lush plants.
Five Spring Mountain Park is well-known for the five springs named Ganlu, Juyue, Mozi, Hui and Meng. It is said that the five springs came out because the general Huo Quming of Han Dynasty used his whip to flick to the ground when stationing his troops here. On the peaks of the mountain spreads a lot of spectacular ancient temples, pagodas, palaces, etc.
