    1. I'm going mountain climbing or I'm going to climb a/the mountain.
    2. I would use "a pagoda" or church/a church/the church.
    3. OK
    4. OK
    5. 1st and 3rd OK. Normally we (Us) say "wedding reception" because "wedding party" can mean the people involved in the wedding.
    6. OK
    7. OK
