November 2014, after a day in Ancient City Pingyao, instead of hiring a guide, and or taxi, we took a train early morning to Jiexiu. It took about half an hour, and saved a lot of money. We paid 50 RMB to the taxi to go to Mian Shan Scenic area. After procedures with tickets and hotel accomodations, in central... More

Made a day trip from Pingyao. Hostel organised a car for Y90 a person and the driver waited for us. No student discount for non Chinese students. It felt like the kind of place that could have been unpleasantly busy in peak season, but was really nice in early November. The park runs along one side of a mountain gorge... More

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. Rather incongruously there were dinosaurs in the middle of the stream and a strange dragon at... More

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

Transport: a pain. We tried and failed to get there by public transport; got to Jiexiu ok (8 am white bus outside the train station in Pingyao 9 RMB). 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.
