Good views of the city from the top of the mountain. The caves where the monks lived before buidings were there are fascinating. NEasy o get to, but you will need a lot of time to look around. Take the car to the top, and the cable car down.

I was pretty clueless what to expect before heading up to Drum mountain. We took a cab there, went straight for the cable car (roundtrip 70rmb/pax) and my mum pretty much enjoyed it. It was drizzling so the view wasn't great but the air was fresh and cooling. Paid to enter the "18 Views" hike which was nothing much except... More

My wife and I went to the mountain and temples on a quiet cloudy day. Although the view was not that great due to the weather, it was less crowded so the visit was perfect. We started to walk up the mountain....made it to 600m and then we turned around and walked back down to take to chair lift because... More

We took a car up and were surprised about the amount of people walking on the road up and down the hill, very dangerous. Note that walking will take you a good 4-5 hours and it is not worth it. When we reached the top there was a platform from which you could see the city, that's all. On the... More

The temple and scenery at Gu Shan Mtn make it well worth the trip! We were lucky, the weather was perfect the day we were there, so the scenery was reall nice! The temple was very impressive!
