The straightforward path really made the whole experience easier. The Geopark in itself is something of wonder, this adventure must really be embarked on. The best thing is, that it is suitable for all ages and that is essential. The trek presents so many different perfect photo opportunities, with every step you take showing you a different perspective of the... More

Yuntai Mountain (云台山) in Henan Province received UNESCO World Geologic Park in 2004. It is the only scenic area in Henan that receives 5 titles- China 5A Grade Tourist Attraction, National Geologic Park, National Water Conservation Scenic Area, National Forest Park, and National Macaque Natural Reserve Area. Among 11 attractions, we visited two popular sites there- Red Stone Gorge (红石峡)... More

Prior to the visit, I was sort of burnt out with work. Upon reaching, the sight was so breathtaking that I felt rejuvenated almost immediately. The fresh air, the picturesque landscape, and everything in it, all made the trekking through the park feel so good that I am now thinking of revisiting the park. Definitely worth a visit. And another.

There are several beautiful sites in the geopark. As I went during the dry season, I couldn't see the gushing waterfalls. Nonetheless, the highlight of the tour was the red sand stone cliffs and stones surrounded by turquoise coloured lakes and rivers. In the words of my 13-year old son, "thought I only see such scenery on our computer screen!".... More

Yuntai mountain is a place you must see if you are in luoyang. You can take it as a day trip. It takes about 2-2.5 hours drive from city center to here. Over here, you will trek down to the bottom of the gorge and slowly back up. The view is magnificent and must not be missed. Along the trek... More

I start by saying that you should spend at least 2 days inside the park. Numerous small hotels and restaurants are available at reasonable prices. The whole park is amazing and very good to you health. I would recommend to buy souvenirs here as the prices are not overpriced.

My friends and I had great time at the Yuntaishan Geopark. We visited at the end of January and even though the weather was not the best we enjoyed our time. When we visited there was a lot of fog, yes it was fog and not smog, and we could not see very far partially. But the fog provided quite... More

You won't find Yuntaishan in most western guide books, which meant I didn't see a single other non-Chinese tourists the for 2 days. Not much English is spoken around here, and I had to take a Chinese tour. However, it is busy....really busy, especially the Hongshi valley sections which is off-putting as you are herded into lines and across streams... More

Nice park just too crowded and it seemed to be a quiet day judging from the empty busses standing around. Red stoney valley was most interesting for me. When nearing the end take the path down (not up) for some excellent waterfalls and water walls.

We went on a public holiday. Crowds were huge. That was our mistake. The amount of rubbish thrown around was disgusting for a national park. It was as if they had no pride in the place. We saw very little due to the crowds and weren't impressed with what we did see. I felt sorry for the cleaners who had... More
