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.

The view on the trail is unbelievable, like better than our Grand Canyon and Yosemite Park add together! Has to be in good shape for the trail, which is narrow and steep!

We did the entire Xihai Canyon - once you ditch the tourists at the cable car, you have the mountain to yourself. It took about 5 hours and was worth every minute. Gorgeous views. Try and get an updated map - the older ones online don't show the new cable car routes, which makes it confusing.

Locking view of mountains was awesome. Beautiful natural design mountains most amazing I have ever seen. Dont forget to see when you are in Huangshan mountain. You view several other points from this point. But our legs has to work out like anything on these mountains. Be fit before coming.
