Mount Qingcheng (Chinese: 青城山; pinyin: Qīngchéng Shān) is a mountain in Dujiangyan, Sichuan, China. It is amongst the most important centres of Taoism (Daoism) in China. In Taoism mythology, it was the site of the Yellow Emperor's studies with Ning Fengzhi. As a centre of the Daoist religion it became host to many temples. The mountain has 36 peaks and is a popular day trip destination from nearby Chengdu. It suffered extensive damage and loss of life as a result of the 2008 earthquake but much reconstruction has already been completed.
