Highlights: Located 100 kilometers from the ancient city of Luoyang, Daimei Mountain has become a must-see among tourists to Henan Province for its unique terrain and breathtaking landscapes. Legend has it that the mountainous area, part of the Wangwu Mountain-Daimei Mountain World Geopark, is where Queen Daimei of the Shang Dynasty (C.1600–1046BC) achieved immortality through Taoist practice.
