For half a millennium, Xiqiao Mountain in Guangdong province has been a key hub for learning the reformist philosophy of lixue, or Neo-Confucianism. Wang Kaihao reports.

There is an old saying in China: "No matter how high the mountain is, its name will spread far and wide if there is a fairy." Xiqiao Mountain on the outskirts of Foshan, a city in southern Guangdong province, is perhaps one such example.

Rated as a national AAAAA-level tourist site, the highest ranking, and honored as one of the "four famous mountains of Guangdong", Xiqiao Mountain, an extinct volcano, stands out not just for its natural beauty but also for the special place it holds in Chinese philosophy.
