Awesome for a hike.

Great place to go for a hike and experience the outdoors side of the middle kingdom. Dont pack food, there are plenty spots to buy on the way.

Went for a half day trip, nice hike up the mountain with waterfalls along the way. Good for a day if you want to go all the way up (it started raining and there was no view when we got near the top) Would recommend going to the back mountain (Qingchengshanhou) as it's less crowded, more scenic (most of the...

A great experience. Use the cable car for part of your trip up the mountain. There are hundreds of steps to climb but the steps are carefully built. There are men who are prepared to 'carry you' on a special seat. I didn't try this as it looked as if it could tip over! Wonderful temples enroute with a monastery... More

If you like to "get away from it all, this is the place to go. the opposite of the City with its great bustle, this offers plenty of views, hikes and CLEAN AIR.

Plan on three to four hours to do this historic and cultural site justice. There are so many things to see in a beautiful natural setting that you will be very happy you made the effort.

The grounds are incredibly well kept and manicured. Our host told us the history of the place and how the gate had to be rebuilt because of damage by earthquake.

Do not be fooled- you need 6 hours! It isn't very scenic due to all being under the cover of trees etc. some very very steep slopes with uneven grounds. the temples on the long route are not particularly amazing

We were tempted to take the back mountain, after we heard it was more beautiful and rugged, but in the end we took the front mountain because we weren't sure if we had enough time. And I am soooo glad. It took us about 3 hours to walk the front (retrospectively I would have paid for the cable car). One... More

Not much to it to be honest. Before the ascension there's a nice lake with a boat - great for photos. After this, it's just boring. My advice is go in the spring or summer time, otherwise the visibility is really bad with all the smog/fog.

From my initial impression of the sky, I expected to be disappointed by this visit, but that wasn't the case. The ancient town was quite impressive and the scenery on the hike up the mountain (back route) was the equal of many I've seen in Tasmania, NZ, Canada and Japan. It wasn't just the odd fantastic view - there were... More
