Awesome views, great hike!

Very cool place. Bring plenty of water and snacks to last. We are of moderate fitness and took about 2-3 hours to reach the very top. Coming down was a lot faster.

Pro-tip to go early (we started the hike at 9) as when we were coming down, it started to get very crowded, noisy and hot. Bring grippy gloves if you're inexperienced as the climb to the top is steep. Hold the firm handles at the side instead of the loose metal chains to make it easier.

The only gripe is the journey there is too long. For budget travellers, take the high speed rail from Meilan airport to Lingshui stop (72 yuan), then I recommend to take a taxi direct to the hotel (150-200 yuan) for approx 1.5hrs. You can't go from the airport and do the hike in a day. In the morning, get the hotel to call the park for you, return trip via buggy to the entrance (about 5km away) is 30 yuan.

For the really budget travellers, you can take the pink public bus (15 yuan?) To baoting from lingshui before taking another public bus no. 2 (3 yuan) up the hill to where the hotels are. Not worth the hassle really. Private transport from baoting to lingshui cost around 30 yuan and takes 1 hour.

As always, get ready to haggle for all forms of taxi and private transport.

Great place for hiking, the trail takes somewhere around 5 hours in deep jungle(With paved staircase) Prepare plenty of bottle water and some food on the way.

Very nice and not to advanced hike. No need for special equipment. Allow to spend 5 hours for the trip. Better bring water and snacks.

Very nice and peaceful place to go, lot of trees, who doesn't like fresh air right?总的来说还是很舒服的地方,温泉加上烧烤在国内算是我前十名的list了。但是去的话带上驱蚊剂最好。价格有点贵但是可以接受。

Nice hike

The trail to the summit is very well maintained. There are resting places, toilets, etc. It's 2,3km long, but most of it are the stone stairs. In total as many as 3770 of them. The return trip takes about 3,5h. If you are in a good shape, maybe less but at least 2,5h. There is a good view from the summit. The last 50m there are no stairs, you pull to the top holding steel chains. It's safe, but may be hard for seniors and younger kids. There is a shuttle to the hotels in the area.

What a day; but what a hike!
Jan 2017 • Couples
This was an excellent trip; collected from our local hotel in their extended golf buggy for the trip up to the visitor centre. This was a bit lacking, coffee shop closed, no where to buy water but functional in getting us our tickets.

We had not researched and reading that it was a 2.3km walk, one way was not An issue but it is a long way up!

It is very well built and managed though with wooden walkways and stairs all the way to the top - I won't spoil the end bit! So a very good trek, tests your fitness but slow and sure gets you there for breathtaking views and a cool breeze. How on earth did they. Build all those steps!

Totally worth a trip.....

Worth the Steep Climb.
Dec 2016
Dec is a good time to do this. Nice and cool, no other tourists.
It's quite a long steep climb to the top. Took us 4-5 hours round trip. 7 year old managed it fine, but might be tough for younger kids.
Last section involves pulling yourself up with chains- not suitable for kids.
Overall a great experience walking through the forest. Amazing trees.
50rmb entrance (I think) well worth it.
Only downer was the crappy piped music that comes at you from fake rocks all the way to the top!

Step but rewarding
May 2016 • Business
This hike was a four hour round trip. The jungle was very lush, hot and humid. Was able to cool down in a waterfall. On the way to the 1126 meter summit there is plenty to see. We saw beautiful bugs, a massive spider and fresh water crabs. It was steps almost the whole way up. The last section is more of a climb up a chain. Fantastic views at the top.
Very good workout. My calves were sore for days afterwards.

A good workout with rewarding views
Apr 2015 • Family
The path up the mountain was well shaded as it runs through the jungle and presents a thick canopy. It starts easy but gets steeper and steeper towards the end. Basically it's all just steps at the top, so if you have trouble with knee pain, bring some hiking sticks with you. The views from the top are excellent and give a nice impression of the surrounding area.

Make sure to bring plenty of water or buy at the entrance as there was no opportunity to buy some along the way
