We visited at sunrise by car with driver (220 RMB, exclude entrance 60 RMB). Left Yangshuo at 4.30 am. Journey takes about 45 min. While the car covers most of the ascent, you still have to make the final climb. Took us about 20-30 min....More

We were at Xianggong Mountain yesterday. The steps were quite steep and a bit much for the unfit ( me) but doable with frequent stops, but the view afterward was worth it. We (4 of us) took a private taxi arranged by our hotel which...More
