I traveled with a couple of friends. This park is worth the visit. Your entrance fee includes a shuttle bus, however, it does not take you directly to the top parking lot where the cable cars are located, and you are not allowed to drive there. The shuttle bus makes 2 stops. At each stop you must get out. If you are not interested in seeing the sights, you can just walk to the bus stop and get on the bus to the next stop. The first stop is worth seeing, it is a beautiful waterfall that is quite high. The second will only interest you if you want to go to a temple. Once you reach the final destination, the parking lot with the cable cars, you MUST purchase a round trip ticket for them. That is the only way to reach the top of the mountain. At first my friends and I thought we could walk to the top and started out on foot, then one of my friends asked a worker, and the worker said that the mountain is 37 kilometers high and it would take us a couple of days on foot to reach it. Needless to say, we only walked 1 1/2 kilometers and took the shuttle bus. The day we went it was quite cloudy. As we ascended we were surrounded by clouds. We could see a little on the mountain top, but not much. Had we stayed a little longer, we might have been able to see more but it was quite cool, so I recommend bringing a light weight jacket or wearing a long sleeve shirt. One final thing. As a foreigner, you will have to register your information in the security office (name, birth date, passport number, when you arrived, where you came from, etc), and if you are with a Chinese national, they will also have to sign it.

Good experience but really need training before heading there

You'll first have to take a bus up to the mountain. There will be 3-4 stops where u can talk a walk up or walk to the next boarding point before reaching the cable car station. We took the cable car up, walked along the platform from 1 peak to the other peak and headed back due to the weather, snow was piled up to knee height.

There's lots of stairs to climb so do not attempt if you've knee injuries. The walk wasn't really tiring but due to the high altitude, you may be very exhausted. so do rest if you need, benches, shelters are provided along the walk.

Do prepare winter gears if you wanted to go up, or alternatively, you can rent a coat for about RMB 50.

best time to hike up is summer as it might still have some snow at the peak but it won't be as cold.

Don't waste time - you won't be able to climb

I live in Xi'an and had been looking forward to going to the false summit of Mount Taibai for a long while. I'd read blogs that showed what a beautiful place it was. After spending money to get there, stay at a hotel, pay the 100rmb park entrance, 120rmb return bus ride, 90rmb cable car ride (these are per person prices) we finally started hiking. It's all stairs - wooden. The views are spectacular - however, at around 3300m you reach a little hut, on that hut is a sign that says "No Foreigners - Chinese Only"... I'm sorry, I love China and I love the Chinese people, but this is a disgrace. I wouldn't ever ever go back to this place. We were physically pushed back with no explanation as to why. There is no pre-warning about this below. Funnily enough, one of the lines of promotion that this national park uses is "International resort and recreation zone"... sorry, it's not international at all.
