(1). The stalactites of the Fragrant Hill look like Chinese incense burners. Because of this, this mountain is called Fragrant Hill by the local people.
(2). The flowers of the apricot trees in this mountain make it fragrant and lots of people start to call it the Fragrant Hill.(info for your China vacations and travel)

Two main routes through the Xiangshan Mountain Park:

One route goes through the north area, with Spectacles Lake (Yanjing Lake) and the bridge, Study of Reading Heart (Jianxin Zhai) and Bright Temple (Zhao Miao). Study of Reading Heart was built in the Ming Dynasty (1368 to 1644) and is a landscaped park inside Fragrant Hills Park. Bright Temple is a large Tibetan style lamasery complex built in 1780 as the residence for the sixth Panchen Lama during his visits to Emperor Qianlong. Buildings in the complex have partially been burned down. Among the surviving treasures are a majestic glazed-tiled archway in front of the complex, a terrace and a glazed-tiled pagoda. Bells hung on the eaves of the pagoda chime in breeze.

The second route leads through the south area of the park. Main attractions along the route include Tranqulity Green Lake (Jingcui Lake), Shuangqing Villa, Fragrant Temple, and Incense Burner Peak. This route is more difficult because it leads across the highest peak, Incense Burner Peak.

Admission fees:

10 rmb for the peak season (04/01 - 11/15), 5 rmb for the slack season (11/16 - 03/31).

How to make an In-Car Incense Burner

How do you use incense sticks?

I purchased incense sticks from a brand called "auric blends". I am having major difficulties? I let the flame take over and it burned the whole stick. Of course it smells burned =( it doesn't smell like its supposed to?
I need help! Please.

also, i purchased an incense burner a long with that.

You just need to light the tip of it. Let the flame burn for a second and then carefully blow it out so that the cherry is intact and it is smoking. Then, place in the incense holder and enjoy!
