Jianglangshan or Mount Jianglang (Chinese: 江郎山; pinyin: Jiāngláng Shān) is a mountain in Jiangshan, Zhejiang, China. Three peaks from north to south make its recognizable "river-shaped" arrangement, as follows: Lang Feng, Ya Feng and Ling Feng. Lang Feng has elevation of 816.8 m (2,680 ft).[1]

The mountain exhibits Danxia landform, and was inscribed onto the World Heritage List in August 2010 as part of China Danxia.[2]

In September 2013, Mount Jianglang was the scene for a stunt by Jeb Corliss where he flew between two of the peaks in a wing suit, starting the jump from a helicopter.[3]
