At the north-east of Nanjing there is a Purple Mountain (紫金山 - Zǐjīn shān), which, along with its slopes, makes a big and beautiful woodland park. Apart from being a spot of wonderful nature in the city, at the slope of the Purple Mountain there are a lot of interesting places, such as the burial vault of the first Emperor of the Ming dynasty, the first and the biggest observatory in China, the Mausoleum of Sun Yat-sen, the Linggu pagoda.

You can ascend to the mountain top on the cable railway, the length of the route is 2.2 km, and the time of complete ascend is 25 minutes. Approximately in the middle of the way there is an intermediate stop at the observatory.
