My visit was with a large group of people and we were in a tight schedule. However, despite us being a hurry the mountain was tranquil and had a sacredness about it. It is definitely in my list to visit again. Suggest planning to spend the entire day hiking up the mountain and spending time contemplating in the temples

This place offers beautiful sceneries and a workout. Find a local guide who will take you to the back side of the mountain and climb it. However, local guides don't speak English. Allow for 3 - 4 hours for the climb to the top. The pictures are from the back of the mountain. The views were spectacular.

We enjoyed visiting the mountain. We walked in the paths, visited the water streams and the monastery, all of which were very peaceful.

Went up to the highest temple visible from the lake at the summit from both treks and even from the chair lift. It was a beautiful experience. Saw the birthplace of Taoism and was impressed by the serenity and beauty of the Yin Yang temples. The harmony in everything was evident from even the sounds and smells. Even the water... More

We visited the mountain as we had heard it was cooler on average than in Chengdu and thought this would be a great day trip. It was cooler than the 38c in Chengdu however what it lacked in temperature it made up for in humidity! It was hot!! We caught the train to the mountain from Chengdu, and then a... More

This place is amazing. Absolutely fantastic views from near the top of the mountain. We walked up to the boat, crossed the lake and got the cable car before walking a little further up the mountain. There are shops at the tips of the cable car selling food and drinks, however there is a very limited selection so I would... More

Very touristy, by which I mean loads of local tourism. Therefore, if one has a lazy day this can still be a good thing to do. Cable car, ferry, people carrying you up the hill nothing has to be done by yourself if you don't want to. Other than that, it is absolutely stunning and beautiful. All of it; the... More

Joined a Chinese tour group not understanding a word of Chinese. It was so much fun, we teamed up and had great time. Luckly enough one guy spoke a little English and was telling me about the different religions surrounding this site. We had a great time talking and learning. Took so many photos i am still trying to sort... More

I got a private taxi booked from chengdu to the mountain and it took around 2 hours to get here but of course there are other ways to get here. You have the option of walking up to the ticket booths or buying a ticket for a tourist cart to take you up which is only HK$10 per person. You... More

Get there early before it gets too hot. Climb the whole way if you're fit - 110 floors equivalent !! Amazing temples to see along the climb.
