Taihang Mountains, stretching over 1,000 kilometers long, look most spectacular along the main line of Yangquan, Jinzhong, Changzhi and Jincheng cities.

The mountain range enters Shanxi province at the Niangzi Pass. It winds through Jinzhong, Changzhi and Jincheng as towering and steep mountains. The height averages 1,500 meters above the sea level, and it stands higher than 2,000 meters in some sections. The most famous parts of the mountain ranges are Mount Taihang, Mount Taiyue and Mount Wangwu.

The grand canyon, Mount Lingkong, Mount Lishan, Wang Mang Mountain Range, and Manghe nature reserve are rare natural scenic areas of Taihang Mountains. Taihang Mountains, bordering Shanxi, Hebei and Henan provinces, are high and steep, featuring spectacular precipices and deep valleys. With a long history, Mount Taihang retains rich cultural relics. It keeps the largest number of ancient temples in the province.
