We scaled Yushan in Apr as part of our twin peak challenge after completing Xueshan with a day break in between both mountains. Did not have good weather in Xueshan, an impending storm was approaching while we were at Yushan so we tweaked our plans slightly and brought forward our summit push and was thankful for great weather despite being a bit more challenging due to longer distance to cover. We trekked all the way from Dongpu lodge to Baiyun lodge and continued to summit all in 1 day. Well worth though.

Right in the heart of Fuzhou a nice little hill to climb. As with everywhere in China - a hill will always have a Temple - this being no different. I enjoyed the views of the city. The ancient Banyon tree is worth the visit.

I have visited Yushan Mountain for numerous times, including the trips in the company of my friends and relatives and the morning trips for fitness and sunrise. Located at the southeastern corner of Gulou District, Yushan Mountain is a famous emblem of the history of Fuzhou. It is said "the Yuyue's" used to live here in the ancient days and this becomes the origin of its name. As one of the three mountains in downtown Fuzhou, it looks like a giant turtle and has a multitude of places of historic interests, particularly 24 scenic attractions, including Jiuri Platform, Lion Rock, Jixian Rock, Xiaohua Peak, etc.

Quiet cultural experience complete with ancient banyan trees, several museums and gardens, an active temple with some exquisite Buddhist statues, also a Taoist temple with a stage and occasional performances. We didn't manage to see everything but had a relaxing walk discovering new pathways and enjoying friends.

We decided to see this place and well, it was ok. It has a nice temple and again because it was the Spring festival, there were loads of people doing some prays for the new year. When we returned back to ground level, we found a nice place to relax and have Starbucks coffee.

The place where the White Pagoda can be found! On our way up, a very kind monk greeted us and had a quick chat with me in English! It was short because the prayer bell rang and he had to be there fast! The air was fresh and the plants were as green as it can be! It can be reached by bus easily from other destinations.

We chartered a private transport to bring us from Jiji town to Dongpu lodge where we stayed for one night before starting the climb the next day.

It was pretty cold up in the lodge. The lodge was quite run-down with rudimentary bath room. Hot bath (not shower) was provided. We had to bathe with a bucket. Meals (dinner and breakfast) were provided by the lodge. The meals (had to pre-arrange) were balanced with vege, meat and even fish but was not very tasty. Blankets (not sleeping bags) were also provided but the linens didn't look very clean.

The climb from dongpu lodge to Paiyun lodge took us 4.5 hours. It was not as difficult as we expected. Definitely much easier compared to first part of Rinjani and Mt Kota Kinabalu.

Paiyun lodge was much newer, cleaner and well organized than Dongpu lodge. Sleeping bags with clean sleeping bags linens were provided by the lodge. Meals (had to pre-arrange). We started the summit hike around 3pm and it took us 2.5 hours to reach the summit. Again the hike was not as strenuous as Rinjani or Mt KK summit hike. But the summit trails were very much narrower with precarious drop-off compared to Mount KK.

In generally the hike is easier compared to Rinjani and Mount KK . In terms of scenery, Yushan offers comparable or better (for the first day hike) to Mount KK.

Yushan scenic area is on Yushan Mountain. On way to top, it offers different views of Fuzhou. On top is a temple worth watching.
