As other reviewers have written - it's very hard to find information online about MianShan, but it is a very worthwhile trip to visit! We booked a hotel which I believed was at the entrance to the mountain scenic area with intention to arrive late afternoon to have the full day at the attraction the next morning. On arriving at...

I went on a major Chinese holiday, so it was PACKED, but it was really beautiful with buildings clinging to the mountain side. The walk up to the cave behind the waterfall was very crowded and not another westerner in sight, but worth it.

It's an amazing place with ancient temples built on to the side of huge cliffs on wooden stilts & cantilevers. Picturesque Canyon with a rivulet and Iron steps fixed to the side of the cliff & chain bridges leading to the top at around 1.6kM trek. Not for the faint hearted. Wonderful cascading small waterfalls and waterways with typical Chinese... More

We were then hounded constantly by taxi drivers who told us there was no bus and no one else would give us a straight answer with a taxi driver stood next... More

Was hard to find information on this mountain tourist area on the net because of name variations and was only visited by us when we decided to share the hotels car with a couple of kiwis(New Zealanders) but it was a highlight of our trip. We visited an underground castle in the morning but now wish we had skipped it... More

Despite the pouring rain, this was a fun day walking up many flights of stairs to colorful rebuilt temples. My favorite was going up the slot canyon waterfalls by step-pylons in the rock walls.

Took bullet train to Taiyuan and local train to the... More
