Loashan was amazing and exactly what I hoped to see. I was very lucky with the weather and could take excellent photos. The entire closed off mountain operation is well run, slick and professional. All the pathways on the mountain were well maintained and easy...More

That’s the fastest way to the top. We were there on a Sunday so it’s quite crowded but not to the point of it being uncomfortable. At the base have a choice of walking or taking the bus up to the cable car area. We...More

A must see. Beautiful scenery, stunning walks. If you are in Qingdao you have to take the time to go on one of the tours, it is well worth it. Be prepared for some steep climbs, the views are definitely worth every step.

Need to go if you go to Qingdao for a holiday. It's about 30-40 minutes from north side of Qingdao. There's multiple scenic areas to travel through and confusing for foriegners. Recommend going with someone who can read Chinese or go with a guided tour....More

I would advise healthy walkers to walk up and get the chairlift down but you can easily completely skip the chairlift as the walk has great views itself and is not particularly challenging. There are tea farms around and many little temples and things to...More
