It has five peaks (northern, southern, eastern, western and central) of which the northern is the highest one (3058 meters/3061 according to some maps) called Beitai Ding or Yedou Feng. It is also the highest peak of North China. Wutai Shan is a nature reserve centred on the beautiful monastic village of Taihuai. All five peaks are accessable throughout the year, though there are practically no climbers from september to april. No special climbing abilities are required to ascend the peaks of Wutai Shan.
