Last month, I went hunting in Nanjing Niushou Mountain with my friends Morton Van and Armand Carroll. We are both lovers of the outdoors and adventure and wanted to experience the excitement and fun of tracking and capturing prey in the dark. To be able to see our target clearly in complete darkness, we chose the WildGuarder Owler1 night vision binoculars, a Chinese brand with great value for money. With a 20x optical zoom and 4x digital zoom, this night vision binocular allows us to observe clear images at distances of up to 500 meters. It also has the function of taking photos and videos, which can save our night hunting experience. In addition to hunting, we also enjoyed the beautiful scenery and profound culture of Niushou Mountain in Nanjing by the way, which made our trip more colorful. Here, I’ll share our Nanjing Niushou Mountain night hunting trip in detail!

Niushou Mountain in Nanjing is a low hill with beautiful scenery and profound culture. It belongs to the south branch of the west section of Ningzhen Hills, and the main peak is 242.9 meters above sea level, named because the north and south peaks of the mountain resemble the horns of a cow. Niushou Mountain has not only beautiful natural scenery, but also many historical sites and Buddhist shrines, making it the destination of our night hunting trip.

We first came to the Hongjue Temple Pagoda on the south slope of the eastern peak of Niushou Mountain, which is a brick and wood structure pagoda built in the Tang Dynasty, about 40 meters high, with seven brick layers and eight sides, one pot door on each side, two small windows, carved wooden eaves, elegant and simple style. This tower has experienced the fires and storms of the Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties, but is still well preserved and is the oldest surviving brick tower in Nanjing. We climbed to the top of the pagoda and overlooked the surrounding landscape and fields, feeling the weight of history and the tranquility of nature.

A short walk west from Hongjue Temple Pagoda, we arrived at the Buddha’s Palace, an underground palace building dedicated to the relics of Shakyamuni Buddha, 220 meters long, 160 meters wide, 89.3 meters high overall, with a single building area of about 136,000 square meters. This Buddha’s Palace was built using an abandoned mine pit, with a huge dome and a lotus throne in the above-ground part and an underground part with an underground palace more than 60 meters deep. We entered the underground palace and descended along a spiral passage, guided by lights and music, to feel the mystery and majesty. In the deepest part of the underground palace, we saw a pale-yellow transparent relic of the Buddha’s parietal bone, about 1.5 cm in diameter and weighing about 0.15 grams, emitting a soft glow in a crystal lamp. The relic was found in an iron letter unearthed at the site of the Great Newspaper Grace Temple in 2008, and was identified and verified by various parties as the true bone of the Buddha’s summit. This is the only relic of the Buddha’s dome in China, and it is known as a “thousand-year relic”. We worshiped in front of the relic and prayed for Buddha’s blessing.

Leaving the Buddha’s Peak Palace, next to it is the Buddha’s Peak Pagoda, a newly built Tang Dynasty style building, 88 meters high, with an area of 4,677 square meters and nine levels and four sides. This pagoda and Hongjue Temple Pagoda form a view of the twin peaks and twin towers of Niushou Mountain. Inside the pagoda there is an elevator that goes straight to the eighth floor, where a bronze cast Buddha-topped vajra bell is placed, with the full text of the Vajra Sutra written by Venerable Longxiang engraved on the bell. On the ninth floor, the Hall of Rulai is dedicated to a seated Buddha, Vishnu Chandra. We visited various Buddhist cultural exhibits inside the pagoda, heard the sound of bells and Sanskrit, and felt the wisdom and compassion of the Buddha’s teachings.

Walking south from the Buddha’s Peak Pagoda and down the mountain road, we came to the Zheng He Cultural Park at the southern foot of Niushou Mountain, which is the burial mound of Zheng He, the three precious eunuchs of the Ming Dynasty. Zheng He was a great navigator and diplomat who made seven voyages to more than 30 countries and regions, opening up the Maritime Silk Road and promoting cultural exchanges between China and abroad. ZhengHe died during his seventh voyage and was buried in Niushou Mountain. His tomb is horseshoe-shaped and made of green stone, with the tomb cover carved with cloud brocade and lotus patterns and engraved with Arabic script. The back wall of the tomb is inlaid with a stone tablet with the words “Tomb of Zheng He” inscribed in negative script. We laid flowers in front of Zheng He’s tomb and remembered the great achievements of this national hero.

We were impressed by the natural scenery and cultural history of Niushou Mountain, and we were excited to have a night hunt here. Next, let me tell you about our night hunting process and feelings!

After we finished our night hunting, we started our celebration. We enjoyed the last night of our Nanjing Niushou Mountain trip by sampling the local food, accommodations and entertainment.

We first went to a vegetarian restaurant near Niushou Mountain, which offered fresh and natural dishes that fit our healthy philosophy. We ordered several special dishes such as vegetarian chicken, vegetarian fish, vegetarian meat and vegetarian hotpot, which were delicious and nutritious. We chatted while eating and shared our experience and harvest of night hunting, and the atmosphere was pleasant.

We stayed in a comfortable standard room, each with its own bathroom and air conditioning. We washed off our tiredness of the day, lay on the soft bed and enjoyed the quiet night.

A KTV near the west gate of Niushou Mountain, which has various styles of boxes and songs with advanced equipment and excellent sound effects. We chose a big box, ordered some drinks and snacks, and started our singing tour. We sang some classic songs, such as “Cowboy is Busy”, “Nanjing Nanjing” and “Jiangnan”, and felt the local customs and culture of Nanjing. We also sang some cheerful songs, such as “Little Apple”, “The Fairest National Style” and “Gangnam Style”, releasing our passion and energy. We sang happily and warmly.
