Bajiaozhai, also known as Yuntai Mountain, Danxia landform, is located between Xinning County and Guangxi Resource County, Hunan Province. The main peak is 818 meters above sea level. It is named for its eight warping angles, and is composed of odd peaks and stone columns of various shapes. It is rare in the world for its richness and taste, and is praised by experts as "Soul of Danxia, National Treasure".

Great to visit with a Chinese speaking friend, who can read the displayed information, or use a tour guide. This is important both from the standpoint of learning about what you are seeing, and what routes are best to take.

The highest and lowest points of the park are 2,141 metres and 320 metres, respectively, and Bajiaozhai’s main peak is 814 metres above sea level. Thus, a great place for exercising your legs by climbing the steep cliffs.

In Guilin I took local bus 100 to the north bus station where buses leave frequently to Ziyuan. The ticket was 40 yuan and took about 90 minutes. After I arrived at the bus station in Ziyuan I took a covered moto for 2 yuan to the north bus station. Here I found a hotel for 78 yuan- there are quite a few hotels around the north station. The next morning I took the 7am van to Meixi for 12 yuan although it left at 6:55. From the Meixi bus station I found a moto taxi who charged me 20 yuan to take me to the park although 30 is also a good price. It is about 10 kilometers. I arrived right at 8:00am so the ticket people weren't out yet and I wasn't charged the 38 yuan entry. At the sign board you start the hike up. They are doing major renovations on this side of the park. But when you reach the top there are many people because the cable car reaches the top from the other side. Amazing views. I returned the same way but as I had not arranged a moto taxi there was none and instead I started walking and shortly thereafter was picked up hitching to Meixi. Then I caught a bus back to Ziyuan and only had to wait a few minutes. I spent another night in Ziyuan this time near the regular bus station and paid 60 yuan for a hotel and I spent the night because at 8:30 the next morning for 38 yuan I took a direct bus to Longji Town for the rice terraces- 3 hours.

Some information which might be useful for others: We went there by private taxi from Ziyuan (300 RMB back and forth, probably overpriced) and arrived at the place called "Bajiao Stockade Village" where there is no cablecar. We had to pay 38 RMB entrance fee (after having refused a higher, "special" price from our taxi driver). The "visitor center" was closed (forever our just temporarily?) and the place looked rather dead. The maps on the panels are quite poor and give no indication about distance/elevation/duration of the trip. Just walk along the road for about 10 minutes to the next group of houses (where there are public toilets). Then follow the locals up the hill on spectacular trails along the ridges and trough little caves etc. When you arrive close to the top of the highest peak there will be more people as they ride up by cablecar (or hike up) from the other side. On the top there are different places where they sell local food and drinks. Hiking up and down took us ~4.5 hours with some breaks. A part of the hike was closed but we still walked this part of the loop as this was what all the locals did. To get there and back is quite an adventure without knowing any Chinese, but definitely worth the trip! Do the hike and forget about the cablecar!

Very good to do in half a day and combine with Tianmen national park (Tianmen mountain of Guilin)...in case you're used to hiking.

When I was at school, I ever heard the Bajiao Zhai Geography Park of Guilin, it is a beautiful mountain and is called "the soul of Danxia landform". When I stood on the top of the mountain,they were so high that they were surrounded by white clouds early in the morning, the mountains looks like whales swimming in the sea,it was really a wonderful trip to climb the mountain.

Definately the #1 in the area and absolutely worth spending a day. Lot's of steps, but various surroundings and beautiful views right from start until the end, where you will suddenly meet the people using the cable car from the Hunan side who are missing this hike and most of the views. Good availability of water and snacks (also watermelon!) along the way.

Hiking up the spines of the Danxian land forms was well worth the 1,000 or more steps we encounterd. The views were spectacular. Well worth the trip up from Guilin, though difficult without a guide or basic knowledge of Chinese regarding transportation, directions and prices.
