With propper shoes take a taxi to the entrance of the Lao Shan national park. There are offered busses to tempels, cabel cars into the mountains and mant trails through the mountains. If you do any tour, be aware that you"ll have to do about 400 meter in high-meter, while the distances per tour are about 7 -12 km.

Fellow travellers What a great day out ! Don't be daunted by going there by local bus, no need for a tour bus / guide, unless you want that comfort. Getting there from Qingdao was quite easy, I caught the local 104 bus from the main road. They are very regular. Got on the bus and the ticketing person came... More

Bus 104 from nearby the nearby Hong Kong Middle Road costs 3RMB. The journey to Láo Shān highlights how big a city Qingdao is and how big it shall be one day. The journey takes around one hour. The Qingdao Laoshan National Park entrance demands you enter it by bus. The ticket is ¥130 (Tàiqīng Gōng/The Temple of Supreme Purity... More

By far the best thing to do in Qingdao if you like hiking, there's the regular trail which is paved or you can do the extreme trail. First, you have to get out of the paved trail and start climbing on the mountain, there's plenty of trails you can follow or make your own, there's a lot of rocks to... More

Laoshan, just slightly on the outskirts of Qingdao real city centre is nice. And nice to get away from the hussle and bussle of ever increasing traffic volumes in Qingdao (and the pollution). Anyway, driver dumped me and I paid the 30 yuan entry fee and started my trek up the mountain side. Said a couple of ritual prayers (get... More

I expect you have to go there and see this place and enjoy there. A really nice and quiet place. The temple on arrival has a fantastic garden trees. And the view on the top, after 1 hour walk behind the telepheric is nice too. Enjoy your time there.

One can take the 104 or 304 city bus from Qingdao, both stop at the Tourist Service Area where one can board the bus that takes you into the park. There are two destinations, the beach area with the temple and waterfalls and the mountaintop. The beachside attraction costs CNY 40 for the ride and the climb to the Buddhist... More

If you want to forget or put some bad things down, Laoshan is a good choice for you to let them go. The sea is clean. The trees are grown. I like this place.

There are many paths you can take through this mountain...safe, with a guide, or you can even venture off on your own (this was the best!!!)
