A giant area of clean air in a very polluted city.

Beautiful clouds, trees, and snow. Not much else stood out. At the bottom of the moutain, the sky is blue on one side and gray on the other. From HongMen, it's less than 5 miles... read more

We went during the Golden Week Holidays, this was an amateur decision on our part, but was the only chance we had to see the mountain. It was packed shoulder to shoulder most of the way up and on the summit. Despite this, we enjoyed our walk up. You can buy simple bamboo walking sticks from the shops along the... More

Beautiful clouds, trees, and snow. Not much else stood out. At the bottom of the moutain, the sky is blue on one side and gray on the other. From HongMen, it's less than 5 miles to the top and can be done in less than two and half hours if you keep your pace. Once you get to the top,... More

This was the most memorable attraction that I visited in Shandong Province. We flew to Qingdao, took a train to Jinan and continued our train trip to Tai'an. We stayed at Roman Holiday Hotel and the hotel is located right at the foot of Mount Taishan. This made our adventure up the mountain much easier. Early in the morning at... More

This is a fantastic place for calligraphy fans and carving fans, as well as Bhuddist traditions and Taoist traditions. The sunrise is worth viewing.

Long flight of stairs but with nice sceneries to see. There are shops and hotels along the way to get some drinks, food and to rest. The place has become a little too commercialised. The weather is cool and it gets colder as you climb higher. Most people will get up early in the morning about 4am to catch the... More

It is a long way up - more than 6000 steep steps, but if you are lucky and the weather is not too bad, the view at the top is definitely worth it. You will meet tons of people, but after a while in China you just get used to it. If you want to see the sunrise, you must... More

A wonderful experience walking up Tai Shan. Unfortunately I only made it half way, 3500 steps was enough and we took the cable car the rest of the way up. We had a wonderful 2 hours wandering around the peaks and visiting the temples. We then walked down to the half way point and got the bus to the bottom,... More

Mount Tai, (Tai Shan, "shan" is Chinese meaning mountain), was one of the best things we did on a two week trip around China. Tai Shan is the most sacred mountain in China, visited by many Emperors, Mao and Confucius. Thousands and thousands of tourists flock to Tai Shan. And pretty much all of them are Chinese. We spent almost... More
