Fantastic views from up top! Chairlift a little unnerving

If you have very young children, you might want to avoid the chairlift as safety standards are not quite up to usual western ones...

Visiting the world famous rice terraces was one of the main reasons we've visited the area. It's an easy hour's walk up and another hour down. I recommend taking the cable car up for an extra ¥60 and then walk down. The scenery from the top is wonderful as is the walk down through the Yao minority villages. Be sure... More

If you have any flexibility, choose a clear day for this activity. Unfortunately for us, this was the last thing we did before heading to the airport and it was very cloudy. It was however, still worth our time. The chair lift ride up and down was nice to take in the scenery. Being one of the few Americans, we... More

Nature, culture, fresh air, sights. Worth while. Climbing the small roads to the tops, passing rice feelds. China is so beautifull. We spent many hours on this site.

The ski lift to the explorable summit is long and very scenic; the scenery from the mountain quite lovely in parts but don't plan on spending too long a time there as the area open to tourists isn't very big.

Regretfully, I was there on a very overcast and rainy day, but it was still great to get to the top and there were many interesting flowers to see on the way.

The agenda for the afternoon of 5th touring day was Reed Flute Cave, but since caves can be visited even when it is raining, our guide Ms Fu thought that we should take advantage of the clear skies and visit an outdoor attraction instead. Thumbs up to her! She made the perfect decision to go to Yao Mountain [堯山]. Yao... More

My sister and I went to check out the cable car and the cart/slide and for the views. Everywhere said it was 75yuan return but when we got there a return cable car was 120yuan.... I don't know if that has something to do with it being a holiday for most people or the prices have just gone up with... More

Went up the mountain via chairlift, then strolled around at the top, admiring the views etc. The day was quite clear, with dramatic views for miles around. The alpine slide for the trip down was closed due to recent rain.
