In the grounds of the Dabei Buddhist Temple, Tian He Retreat offers a unique China experience. The Retreat is located in the Jiuhua Mountains of Anhui Province, a half-day journey southwest of Shanghai. It is an escape from the pressures and chaos of the city, a place where you can experience a rejuvenation of body and soul. We offer organic meals made from produce from our gardens and local farms, fine tea, yoga as well as mountain walks and biking. All guestrooms have a private bathroom and bamboo forest views and share the tranquil peace of the life of the local countryside. The Tian He Retreat combines western service standards with a commitment to sustainable tourism in China.
The Retreat is situated on the secluded slopes of the 'back' of Jiuhua Mountain, one of China’s four sacred Buddhist mountains. Its secluded and quiet environs have provided the location to many temples since at least the Ming dynasty. The traditional unity of people with nature is still the way of life. Our goal is to connect you and the richness of traditional Chinese culture.
