Maybe I have been spoiled by visiting places like ZhangJiaJie, DanXiaShan in Shaoguan, TaiShan and WuYiShan before coming to LuShan, but I did not find this place as majestic and scenic as I had hoped. There are a some nice views and a couple of the lakes are interesting. Compared to the others, this place is simply average.

Been to the few popular nature spots in China, and Lushan offers something different. The scope and wide views from the mountain top is so far, the best I've experienced in China. A few things to note: 1. You have a few choices to stay - at the foot of the mountain (at Jiujiang), or on the mountain itself (at... More

One of my favorite places in China. Stay at least two nights and spend at least a day and a half. Lots of history, hundred-year old stone villas well-preserved built for foreign missionaries and businessmen, then appropriated in the late 1920s as a summer political retreat by Chiang and the KMT, followed by some important Chinese Communist Party meetings between...

It was a day trip for us. We need to take the park's bus, the road was very winding and took around 1 hour to the top. We visited Meilu (Soong May-ling's villa), Heavenly Bridge and Immortal's Cave (aka. Celestial Cave). I highly recommend to hike along the Brocade Valley. It's only 1.5 km. We also visited Flower Path (Huajing)... More

A relaxed and friendly resort town with a splendid mountain setting with innumerable walks and vistas. It has a long history of literary associations, and a shorter one of political activity, but it is all interesting,

I've been twice to the Lushan Mountains and the first time found quaint shops and eateries that carried authentic hand-made and hard-to-find items that seemed locally made and were of good quality. My next visit (April 2011) with wife and young child made me wonder what I saw that was so great the first time. The souveniers in the shops... More

From other comments here seems like Lushan is not good place to go. That is WRONG. I am not sure what standards are people used to but Lushan is a beautiful place to go with stunning views. Me and my girlfriend just came back from traveling around south of china and Lushan is definitively on the top places to go.... More

My 2nd visit in 10 years. The hotel was horrible (something...Guest House)...mildew everywhere. The mountain is overrun with tourists, and the path around the mountain is now downright dangerous. Walk with extreme care and be mindful not to venture near the edges because nobody cares if they bump you over a 1000 foot cliff. I was simply amazed at the... More

I have recently completed my fourth visit to Lushan, over a period of about 5 years. The quality of the experience this time was very poor. For example: 1. You can get a taxi to take you to the more distant attractions and the charge is as on the meter and quite reasonable. However, no taxi will then take you... More
