This peak is definitely one of the more challenging ones. I would suggest climbing on the southern side because its stairs are more vertical and will be more challenging to go down, especially on the knees. Plus, decending on the northern side will place you...More

Tian Du Feng (Celestial Capital Peak) is fantastic, if you're ready for it. We were already in the park, but we climbed the peak as the last leg of a 14-mile day that included more elevation gain and loss than I've been able to calculate...More

You can see it from Yu-Ping-Lou. Second highest peak of Huangshan. High stepped cliffs. Roads get slippery in rain.

This is one of the most terrifying places in Yellow mountains. Hike to this peak is really steep and every step might be your last. However the feeling after conquering the mountain is great!
