“A fabulous walk among the Yao people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Be prepared for an uphill walk but it is well worth the effort and the views from the top are spectacular. Be also prepared for the many stalls selling handicrafts on the way up and back again. Getting one of the ladies to unwrap their hair so you can take a photograph can be quite costly. A meal in one of the village restaurants was just beautiful.

“Breathtaking view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Loved Yao Mountain! Was not planning to go there at first but the tour desk at the hotel suggested it and I'm very glad that she did. We took the cable car up to the mountain then took the toboggan down which was fun! The view from the mountain was refreshing and there weren't too many tourists around which was good.

“A piece of heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

I want to go back and stay in the same wonderful room overlooking the serene river and mountains that I had on the second floor. The staff were excellent, the quiet location was perfect for meditation and rest. I don't even want to share this piece of heaven with anyone else so that it doesn't get crowded.

“A nice ride with the cablecars”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

If the weather is nice, this is a highlight around Guilin. Cablecar takes about 20 minutes through stunning landscape. On the way back you have a choise to go on a tourist bob-slice back down.

“Touch the sky!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

The cable car is unbelievable! It was almost 20 mins ride and you will really enjoy the scenery around the mountain, overlooking the golf course and different variety of trees and flower, on top of the mountain is the captivating view of the other side of Guilin. Experience this unforgettable ride to the sky!
