We, 2 families with kids (8, 9 and 11) started from the Beihai Hotel and walked for ab out 1.5 hours through the canyon and same way back. We did not get as far as the monorail, rather stayed up on the mountain. It is an amazing hike with stunning views. It was not an "easy" walk, but well doable... More

It is very beautiful, and best of all, there are no tour groups there!!! Lots of downhill stairs and amazing viewpoints. Once you get to the bottom, I recommend taking the tram back to the top or suffering a miserable death trying to ascend out of the treacherously steep canyon.

We are seasoned hikers, but this was challenging even for us. The stairs are steep, and cling to the side of the mountain. I am not in any way afraid of heights, but there were times looking down the stairs, that I found myself hanging on to the rail for dear life. There seems to be nothing between you and... More

Footpathes and staircases attached to the rocks with nothing underneath you for several hundred meters ... just breathtaking and a little frightening as well

The Western Sea (Xihai Grand) Canyon is worth a full day alone, not withstanding the cable car that takes you deep in and out of her belly (long, long queues and which isn’t on all maps and is not to be confused with the Taiping Telpher – which provides access to the north entry/exit). Skip the Canyon’s cable and hike... More

It is not a canyon of grand scale, not at all, but it is so beautiful and unique with such views mixed with fog, cloud, rain and snow! Just breathe-takingly beautiful.

This spot has canyons that drop deep and steep. Very nice with the mountains far away in the background with bluish grey shades. Words cannot do justice to the beauty. Just go.
