Let's start off by saying that Shijiazhuang was a complete delight. Now that that is on the table here we go. It's a great day trip from Beijing and could be done in one really long day or do like we did and go up the night before stay the night in Shijiazhuang (shudder) and then find a car in... More

This quiet and spectacular gorge and temple area is served by a bus daily from the western bus station in Shijiazhuang, which leaves at 8.45 and takes under 2 hrs, and is very worthwhile. It is easy to walk up past the bridge temple and through the cliff line up to the plateau where there are some newer temples. The... More

Having visited some of the top ten famous mountains in China, Cangyan mountain is pretty little by comparison. We ascended the moutain by the cable cars that seats only two (was a little concerned about its safety) and walked down (wasn't steep) within 2hrs including a decent number of photostops. There were several things to see but I would not... More

I was very fortunate to be taken there by a good friend from Beijing. We were staying in Shijiazhuang and doing some work in Xinji, and having a weekend spare did this as a day trip. We opted to walk the whole route and there is a route you can do which starts at the car park and makes it... More

Went here on a day trip from Shijiazhuang and was really surprised at how great it was. We were actually the only tourists there most of the day and the views and the monastery and the bridges were all spectacular. We had a local dog act as our tour guide, at a picnic by the river and then climbed back... More

I had a wonderful half day here. Firstly, and unusually because there was only about 20 tourists there, seriously! The Buddhist temples are set on top of the mountain plateau and look spectacular from a distance, especially the buildings straddling the gorge half way up. You get a great view of these riding the gondola on the way up. Also... More

We visited Cangyan Shan at the begining of April 2012. We took an organised bus tour from the town in which we were teaching which took 2 and a half hours so from Shijiazhuang I would guesstimate a 2 hour coach trip. The cable car was not in operation on our visit, but to get a good appreciation of your... More

I recently visited Mt Cangyan (Cangyan Shan) in September 2006. I stayed at the Hebei Grand in Shijiazhuang but was unable to obtain an english map showing the location of Mt Cangyan. I requested staff to let me google it and they then instantly recognised the place and organised a taxi (RMB400). I left at 10.00 on a Monday. It... More
