Never ever miss this scenic mountain when you visit Shijiazhuang

You might not believe it: you could get to Mt. Cangyan scenic area only two hours away from the city long-distance bus station and an hour and half away by car. It’s where the... read more

We hired a 13 seater van for rmb 800 to/fro from town. Comfortable journey although the roads to the mountain were icy, the driver did a good job of driving slow & safely. Because it was winter and so cold we were the only visitors there, it was heaven sent as it was quiet, we took our time taking photos... More

You might not believe it: you could get to Mt. Cangyan scenic area only two hours away from the city long-distance bus station and an hour and half away by car. It’s where the movie “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” was shot. The beauty all lies in the mountain itself: the clusters of temples hovering in the mist, the cascade, and... More

Out of seven months spent in China, Cangyan Shan is still a highlight (as was Shijaizhaung city (museum, ancient bridge, old walled city, Yujia stone village). The surprising thing is that it is so close to Beijing. I visited in Spring, when the cable car was closed. It's a short easy hike up under the two bridges of the temple.... More

1) How to get there (of you know skip this part). It's quite easy (also chinese men looked at me with panic, it seems that everybody was shocked that a foreign girl could get to "Cangyan shan" alone). I took a bus from Xiwang bus station to Cangyan mountain, it costs 44 CNY and depart at 8:40. But pay attantion,... More

Can be a bit of a hassle to get there, however it is well worth it. Amazing view and a bit more peaceful than other chinese attractions.

I enjoyed my afternoon. I was not able to stop at all the viewing spots, but the places where I stopped were gorgeous. It was a warm day; thankfully there was a gentle breeze that really made the climbing more delightful. It is a hard climb, so if you have bad knees, it might be better if you only hike... More

I took a bus from Xiwang bus station and had to change the bus at an other city from which I don't know the name, the trip took me at least two ours (probably there is a faster way if you take a morning bus) but was totally worth it! This mountain is located in a beautiful area, you walk... More

You stayed in Shijiazhuang and missed Cangyan visit...nothing to say! Breathtaking view. Bonus were the clouds and drizzlings. Unforgettable memory. Cable car climbing will be easier but to enjoy the fullest, climb through the walkway. Lucky to have a good car driver who waited 2 hours at the bottom of the mountain with out complains. Yes, we took 2 hours... More

As a westerner with limited Chinese it was a long way out of Shijiazhuang. We took buses, and it was very cheap, but took a long time. We could have caught a taxi from the nearby town the first bus drops you at, but the driver wanted 150 RMB. In retrospect we should have saved an hour and a half... More
