My son and I took the cable car to Mount Song, and attempted to hike to the summit. We were frustrated by the lack of directional signs on the paths, and gave up on the third attempt after taking 2 wrong paths. The paths were overgrown and did not seem as if they were regularly hiked. There are opportunities for... More

If you have the time you should plan most of the day for Shaolin Temple and Song Shan. We knew there was a walking path from the temple to an area called Sanhuangzhai scenic area, but did not expect that much. We started from the Shaolin temple area (behind the pagoda forest) and had to walk to the end of... More

Mt. Song is one of the five famous mountains of China. And we really wanted to go up there very badly. Unfortunately all the trails and gondola was apparently closed to renovation. Apparently there was an accident several months ago? And nobody really knew about it? Our concierge nor the taxi driver knew it was closed until we tried driving... More

Be sure you have plenty of time, the hike once you are up the Gondola can take a while to get tot he temple. Plus, the views are so extraordinary, you will want to stop often to take pictures! Don't miss this if you are in the area!

We started early morning at Shaolin temple and then walked the hike towards Sanhuangzhai. I would suggest doing it the opposite direction bc the kungfu shows don't start until later (10am I think) so we missed them. I'm sure they're cheesy but also would have been a fun thing to watch while we rested. And you will want to rest,... More

We were dropped off at the beginning of the hike and headed towards Shaolin temple. The hike was a highlight of the day as the temple itself was a bit too touristy. We started early in the morning and it took us about 4-5 to reach the Shaolin temple. The hike is very beautiful and worth doing especially if the... More

We spent the whole day climbing the mountain and although it was tough, it was definitely worth it! Some great views and many temples along the way! I would definitely recommend this to other travelers!
