I spent National Day in Taishan or what they call Mount Tai. I was with a tour group and only spent the day there. First line is getting your coach bus that will take you to the base camp where you choose to go on foot up or take the cable car. That's 30 RMB one way. Upon reaching the base camp, the log climb begins or you may want to use the cable car ... be ready to be pushed for an hour by the crowd until you get to buy your ticket for 100 RMB one way, and another 30 minutes or so of more pushing until you see your cable car. The scene was very good. The ride was smooth and not scary at all. Whew, this mountain is very steep. I was thankful I chose the cable car. The view on top was fascinating. The weather changes drastically from misty, foggy, sunny, windy and cloudy. I can only see heads and more heads every where. I had my picture taken and printed there for a lofty cost. My only decent souvenir. There are food and souvenir shops in a village like part of the mountain. The temple was further uphill but it was very crowded and I can't stay long because my guide told me to be back in the park by 5PM. I wanted to enjoy the serenity a real mountain brings but I didn't find it there on a national day holiday. Be warned already! Stay longer and go there off-peak so you can have the mountain to yourself.
