Great Destination
Sep 2021 • Friends
It is my favourite place to go in Dalian area. There are two most common ways to get to the top. One is to take stairs to the temple, second is to take a road from the village few hundred metres further up the road Both cost 10yuan for car park and both cost 20yuan at the gate. However, the stairs close after 6pm while the road becomes free of charge in the night. You cannot drive to the top without permission. The views from top are amazing and you can see both Bohai Sea and Yellow sea. It takes about 1h45min to get to the top. The views especially during night are amazing.

The Other Side Of The Mountain Is Grand, Too
Aug 2018 • Couples
Most people go to the first park on Big Monk Mountain, or Daheishan, or Grand Monk Mountain, walk up thousands of stone stairs, see several temples, and it's fantastic. If you take the same road for about fifteen minutes you get to a couple of other temple compounds that are magnificent and a short-cut to the top of the mountain. If you go around the mountain on the same road, you get to the top of another temple compound so you don't have to walk up 2,000 stairs to see what looks like a small cave but opens up to a high ceiling with huge Buddhist and Taoist sculptures. You can also go to the 4th temple complex by a shorter route and walk up those stairs, to see more. All four sites on this mountain are magnificent. All Daheishen needs now is a waterfall on the top so more people take notice of this amazing place.

Cherries farm for cherry picking
Jun 2018 • Solo
After visiting Golden Pebble Beach, I took Line 3 to Development Zone stop and hired a taxi to the numerous cherry farms at Big Black Mountain. I did not have the time to hike up (about 2 hours one way). The driver brought me to a farm where I paid RMB 30 to pick and eat as much cherry as I like and whatever I picked will be RMB 20 for 500 g. I also bought apricots at RMB 10 for 1.5 kg. After that the driver brought me to the entrance of Big Black Mountain where I walked for a while near to the vicinity. I joined a young couple to pick a type of small red berries in the woods. The toilet at the entrance has to be avoided at all cost. I managed to get a kind driver who conversed with me. On the light rail train, a kind lady managed to write down in Mandarin the places I would like to go and I just showed it to the driver.

Nice place to spend half day in late spring
Jun 2017 • Friends
Better to go at the end of may. Besides nice view from top of mountain you can enjoy amazing fresh grown cherry for quite small money. Road to the top is civilized, but be ready for some climbing exercise. Nice place to visit if you already finished with attractions inside Dalian city itself.

Big Monk Mountain Beauty
Apr 2017 • Couples
Okay, it's not the Alps or the Rockies or the Himilayas but Dahieshan, or Big Black Mountain, or Big Monk Mountain is the biggest and best in Dalian, China, and I love hiking up there. The taxi ride from Kaifaqu Station to the huge hill is fascinating, especially if you go to the temples on the other side of the mountain. The first hiking trail in the National Park is spectacular, but a little dangerous, in places. It's beautiful in every season but most popular on festivals, holidays, and in the summer. Take your camera!

I've hiked up the mountain several times and visited different temples a dozen times. It's an impressive, spiritual, beautiful, place, so I'm amazed nobody even looks at it when they are travelling by it on the cingguay, or local train, because the views are great. From one angle, close to Kaifaqu Station, it looks like a great big sleeping elephant. From the Jinshitan side, it looks like a woman, lying down. The locals say it's like the head of a monk -- bald on top. Also, of course, there are dozens of temples, old and new, on the mountain, as well as a fortress.

The hiking trails are mostly stone stairways with railings and there are places to buy Taoist wishes or prayers along the way, as well as drinks and snacks. I never get tired of visiting this mountain.

Nice view
Oct 2016 • Business
The view in this mountain is amazing.If you want to go to the top you will walk a little. The distance from the bottom to the top is almost 6 km.To see all the temples you need to find them because they are inside of forest.Days without clouds in sky are best days to visit.I liked a lot of this place.
