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

It is pleasant on the way there, but when you come to the Temple on the bridge - it really takes your soul away! Must see!

The spot is around 70 kilometers southwest of Shijiazhuang. The tourist can take a nonstop bus to Cangyan Mountain from the Xi-wang Highway Coach Station of Shijiazhuang. The journey takes about 1.5 hours. It is a combination of natural mountain scenery with historical temples. The central landmark is the Bridge-Tower Hall of the Fortune Celebration Temple. It is one of... More

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
