We walked 1.5 hours to the top of the mount, the view on the top didn’t disappoint us, Changsha is beautiful from a panorama. Definitely recommend you to visit if you have no other planned schedule.

I would definitely take either the bus or cable car to the top. Unfortunately, the cable car was not operating when I visited, thus I took the bus. You can take an excellent photo of Changsha from the top and then walk down to the bottom. Along the way, you will see some historic sites on the mountain. Definitely worth the visit!

They have 3 options, one take bus with site seeing or use cable car or trek to go to top of the mountain. For coming down Slider can be good choice.

Went there over the Chinese Golden week. There are people everywhere and the weather was very hot. The day when we went there was very hazy so we hardly saw anything. Overall quite disappointing visit
