This is a beautiful mountain range. We took the cart and the cable car up. Even doing that we hade a good two hour walk along the path. There are some steep stairs to climb up and down. The view is breath taking. I would recommend bringing water and snacks but there are a few stores to purchase drinks and snacks.

I went up in mid-winter, with enough water but not enough snacks - there were none to be had on the 3 hour journey. Frozen creeks, frozen waterfalls frozen dams; some birds calling I think Chinese magpies, and large nests in the trees.
Running out of food and water I stopped short of the top and turned back; trying to find a bus down was too difficult, but they told me if I rang and waited 40 minutes one would come; I wasn't willing to wait cold on a rock.
Nice, pleasant, clean but nothing special.

Visiting the Mountains of Anshan was a really breathtaking trip. The whole area is very well maintained and everything is good organized. Climbing up the Mountains and hiking along the Mountain trail is memorable experience.

It's a simply gorgeous place to visit. There's so much to see, don't expect to get to everything in one day. There are great views, Taoist and Buddhist temples, some nice picnic spots (especially at the lower points of the park by the water) and lots of stairs. With dozens of peaks, you'll find yourself walking uphill and downhill a lot. The paths are interesting and part of the fun if you enjoy the outdoors - many of them are cut out of the mountain and have quite a gradient to them. Some would be at a 60 degree angle or above. There's always a sturdy handrail nearby, but if you're nervous about heights then it's something to take into consideration. The day I went was a little drizzly, and overall a very comfortable temperature in spring. I can imagine it would be much less pleasant on a hot summer's day.
If I were travelling with anyone who was uncomfortable with climbing (or kids), I would go left at the start - you can still see plenty of temples, find some picnic spots and there's a fairly shallow gradient. If you feel really lazy, there's even a shuttle.
It's well worth the visit if you like seeing views and trees, hearing birdsong or visiting sacred sites.

A good day's walk from the furtherest stop back to the gate - just a bit confusing with the path signs. The locals seem to like to come and walk in the evening, and Mid Autumn Festival is huge here with the temples overflowing as the moon rose.

We visited Qianshan park to view the scenery and plants. The park is very well kept and fun place to visit with many good hikes and things to see. This is one of my favorite parks I have visited in China.

A beautiful national park set in the Qian Shan mountains, just outside of Anshan. You can spend a full day trekking and exploring the mountain trails and Buddhist and Taoist temples dotted throughout the park.

It's one of the most peaceful places I've been in China, great to see unspoiled forests, and rolling peaks covered with greenery as far as the eye can see. There roads and wooden walkways through the main route, with some smaller paths throughout.

There are no cars allowed in the national park, but they do have small open shuttle buses that take you along the main route if you don't want to walk too much, and cable cars to take you up to a few points (all can be reached by walking) - you'll still have to climb stairs to visit most of the temples and main attractions in the park though!

I've just been for a second time, and highly recommend a visit to this beautiful national park. Best to go on a clear day so that you can take advantage of the great views from some of the peaks.

The most recent time I went, a woman in one of the Taoist temples recommended that we focus on Wuliang Taoist Temple and the Giant Buddha peak, both of which have stunning views of the surrounding scenery as well as beautiful temples - if you're pressed for time, these two must sees are a good place to start. I've spent 5-6 hours exploring both times I've been, and would recommend at least this much time, although you could easily spend a full day.

There are some snacks and water and soft drinks available for purchase at a lot of points, but I'd recommend taking food with you if you want more than a snack.

We paid 80RMB per person for entry. It takes about half an hour by cab (and about 30RMB) and there are buses from town as well, across the road from the main railway station.
