Drum Mountain is located 8 kilomters from east of Fuzhou, stretching over 1,890 hectares. Its highest peak is 919 meters above sea level. According to legend, there sits at the mountaintop a huge stone flat as a drum that produces drum-beating sound whenever it rains. Hence，it is named Drum Mountain.
One of the top 10 scenic areas in Fujian, Drum Mountain boasts Dharma Eighteen Scenes, Baiyun Cave, Guling Resort, Shanxi Stream and Moxi Stream. It is believed that a trip in Fuzhou not including the Mountain will prove to be pointless.
