Loveliest autumn foliage
Oct 2019 • Family
Before coming to this national park in CHINA, I have already admired autumn colours in Korea, Europe, New England. I was pleasantly surprised that the autumn foliage was in much greater abundance in this national park in autumn compared to Korea & Europe. We were welcomed with a riot of colours ranging from golden yellow to orange&scarlet. Compared to USA, the wooden pathway built next to the stream provides one with greater accessibility to the maple trees.absolutely autumn fairyland.

Still beautiful after the Autumn colors
Oct 2014 • Couples
We missed the colors - late October it was all over - but enjoyed the late Fall crunch of leaves everywhere.

The park is geared for megatourism, with the usual car park fee (10rmb), gate fee (90rmb each), and minibus fee system, with the bus tickets to be bought inside the gate (10rmb each stage). This time of year, the rates stay the same and the buses go when they are full.

We caught the bus to LongMen Valley (Dragon Mountain Valley) and walked to FengZi Hai (Sea of Maples). This was a challenging walk on steep stone steps (about 2kms) and took us about an hour and a half, and we went down via WuCai Hu (Colorful lake) as we weren't sure where Xiao Huang Shan (Little Yellow Mountain) was in relation to the road.

When we checked at the Loop Lake by the entry gate end, it seems like the trail head near the cave is the end point marked on the signboards as Xiao Huang Shan. So if you are up for many steps, you could give the bus a miss and walk the trail to Colorful Lake and then return 2 km's along the river path, or continue on to Dragon Mountain Valley, which we were told was 4 kms from the entry gate and then walk back or buy a bus ticket there to get back to the entrance.

It is a big area and we didn't get to LuYin Shan (Green Villa). Anyone got any tips for that end?

Nice if it's your first time seeing maple leaves
It's quite an expansive mountain so be sure to have nice shoes on. It can be crowded during the holidays but the roads are wide and cars are infrequent. The trees turn golden and red in autumn so the backdrop is amazing when the colors are just right. There aren't enough toilet stops so be sure to relieve yourself before heading up. There's ample trees and bushes to take pictures. It's a nice hike but if you get tired the only way down is the way you came from, unless you can flag down a car. There's also a small lake at the foot of the mountain where you can rent foot paddle boats.

Maple leaves in fairyland
Oct 2013 • Friends
This is one of the best, if not the best, places for enjoying colours of maple leaves in late Autumn.

We visited the park in early Ocotober right after China's October long holidays. There were much fewer people and you can really enjoy the scenery and take great pictures at ease. Here one can find maple leaves to as many as "eleven points". Colour scheme of leaves ranges from red, orange, yellow and green literally can be found on one tree!

There are five scenic spots in the park. We enjoyed the Five Colour Lake the best, especially in early morning when there was no wind and the reflection can be clear seen on the water surface. If you are a hiker, take a hike up the Little Yellow Hill where you can have a better of the lake below.
