There are apparently that many steps to reach the top of the mountain and view the memorial and tomb, ostensibly to commemorate the 392 million Chinese represented by the first President of China. The memorial itself is great, the history is palpable and the climb...More

It's a hike to the top, but worth the climb. Turn around and take in the view before proceeding into the tomb.

Visited this on a weekday and there were still throngs of people. There are steps to be climbed and it's a meaningful place for the Chinese so it would be good to know a bit of history about the place and also Sun Yat Sen...More

Despite the very long walk up to this monument, the gardens and surrounding landscape are very handsome --like a small oasis in a city full of sky scrapers.

Great travel experience, full of historic moments and interesting facts. The climb was pretty tough though-293 steps. Would recommend to people who like exploring but not to the elderly who have aching bodies.
