We visited this mountain in winter season and found out there was nothing much to see . Better come by fall season for more beautiful view. Not many tourists here when the time we came. Visited on Dec 2018.

Three ways up - cableway, mini bus or walk. I did not like the idea of a 1 hour uphill walk so took the mini bus at Y20 each. From the top lookout - great views of the city. The walk down was very pleasant...More

A good afternoon walk up the mountain or use the tourist bus to the top. Choose a clear day! At the bottom is the library where Mao studied. Lots of beautiful scenes.

I think this place is an average mountain park. Get famouse from the praise from the china first chairman for the Falls scenic view. there is a paid car ride service for visitor to reach the peak or to get down the mountain.

An alternative would be a couple of bus rides. Taxi easiest. If the visibility is poor, forget it. Today is beautiful but most of October has been bad.
