Take as long as you need!

Seeing Mount Wudangshan has been an ambition of mine for years and despite the difficulty posed getting here due to its proximity to towns etc I can safely say it was straightforward and well worth the expense. Firstly accessing the mountain is easy, there is a fleet of buses taking you to a cable care which offers amazing views all the way up. You can take as long as you like but the real scenes are at the top in the main temple buildings where the monks live. The trails are tricky but well worth the effort if your inclined (as they are) but if iyou prefer to relax as you go then thats easily done. The facilities and guides are many and courteous and the views are stunning. It really is out the way but that is actually its main charm!

Difficult visit on a hot day
Sep 2019
We were on a tour package and all entrance fee were included. But noted that if otherwise, the many fees payable are expensive. All attractions are uphill and require steep climbs. Very demanding on a hot day. Very interesting history but many attractions need better maintenance. Storyboards were inadequate. Thus need for a good and knowledgeable guide. We were there for a whole day but still not able to visit all the important attractions (mainly temples). Interesting visit with spectacular views. But very exhausting.

Gorgeous mountain. Fabulous hiking. Beautiful temples. Magical feng shui forest. If you do Tai Chi, it is the reputed location of the origin of this art/martial art.

Great Experience
Nov 2018
I was on a tour of Wudangshan and Wudang Mountain. The roads are in very good condition and the cable car takes you right up to the mountain. Buddhist religion is still practiced on the mountain besides a constant flow of tourists. A wonderful area to explore the religion and the art of Kung Fu.

An Incredible World Heritage Site

I have visited Wudang Shan several times over the years and this is a “must experience” travel into history, well preserved temples and palaces, dating from the Ming Dynasty in the early Fifteenth Century. This is the birthplace of Tai Chi and an ancient center of Taoist philosophy. At least once in everyone’s life they must come to Wudang Shan!

A Wonderful and Ancient Area of Temples
Apr 2018 • Solo
When you arrive at the Wudang area (a closed town at the base of the mountain), take a free shuttle bus to any of several places along the way. From temples all the way up to a lovely cable car ride which will take you to the top of the mountain. Plan for a full day and lots of walking. Much of it up and down steep stairs. Be aware that it is often foggy high on the mountain and the stone stairs become quite slippery. Proceed slowly and carefully and hold the rails and chains on the sides. This are is definitely worth seeing. A once in a lifetime experience.

How did they do it?
Nov 2017 • Friends
This is a UNESCO site well worth a day trip from Shiyan in Hubei province.

It has the usual tourist markets and restaurants but still feels like one traveled back in more than 500 years.

It's a short drive from Shiyan. Cars aren't allowed on the mountain road after entering the park to control congestion. Buses transport tourists to the cable car.

Some chose to walk instead of the cable car. They have my respect. It's already a sturdy hike to the top from the top of the cable car. The architecture is magnificent and it remains an active Taoist temple. This is where yin and yang were born. The Golden Temple is at the pinnacle and it's almost unbelievable that all the materials were carried to the mountain top by workers (we were told beasts of burden were not used).

It was late autumn so we missed the fall colors, but the views were still excellent and on this lucky day the air was clear.

Definitely felt a spiritual presence, especially when some Taoist monks appeared on a nearby mountain top and practiced tai chi.

A Major Religious and Cultural National Park

I spent a day here exploring on my own and found that I could only see a small fraction of the park and temples.

There is a very good shuttle bus service but if you do not speak or read Chinese getting the right bus can prove challenging. There were many staff, all wearing red jackets, to help tourists but you still need to point to the park map and maybe ask more than one.

Overall, this is a must see if you are nearby.

good bus service to different temples
Oct 2016 • Friends
Loads of temples here to visit. The buses are free once you pay to enter the mountain area, and they take you to the main temples. Beware that there is still a lot of walking to do, so if your knees are at all dicey, then get a walking stick. Lovely mountains, and you can see blue sky when it is clear.
