As others have mentioned it’s a fairly steep climb at some points, including a set of sturdy ladders along the way. Very nice view from the top, especially from the rocks just a little higher than the pavilion. Going during golden week made getting to...More

I would definitely agree with emilyrogers737. It was very steep, and hot! the trail is under the trees and there is no air, just humidity! so we were wet after a couple of minutes. So many stairs...and I died couple of times on my way...More

Around 30-45 minutes to get to the top. Hope for clear weather as the views will be good. Wear good shoes to do the walk

We were not expecting this hike to be as challenging as it was based on the reviews from both locals and TripAdvisor but it was HARD. We started about 6:35pm and made t to the top by 7:15pm. Perhaps it’s because we had just biked...More

On the road to this park, going through groves of citrus trees the car stops at the park’s parking lot. You have to walk on a semi steep path incredibly made with stone slabs. On your way to the top imagine the amount of work...More

The Guilin Laozhai Mountain is another exciting place to get a great birds eye view of the area. On a clear day, the views are gorgeous and we were quite fortunate that there were no rains on that day. Woot woot !

excellent and stunning view for the sunset. However, climbing up is a challenge, but worthwhile. We recommend to go down by 7/7.30pm before it gets completely dark...If you want to stay longer, take some headlamps with you. You will need them coming down!!!

One of the best things going for Laozhai mountain is the location. The start of the climb is just outside of the xingping dock. It's a steep, 30 minute climb to the top where you get almost no view. But then, at the very, very...More

This hike starts from very near the ferry docks and takes about 30 minutes up a VERY steep trail made of stone steps with one 15 foot section of metal ladder with sturdy handrails. There is a small pagoda at the top and even better...More
