QingCheng Mountain in Dec

Hi,

Would you recommend walking up the back mountain in early Dec? Many people speak of beautiful waterfalls? Do they dry up in Dec?

And which route would you recommend for the back mountain? I have 2 children (9 and 11 years old) with me. We are willing to do 4 hours of walking (2 hours up, 2 hours down).

Thanks in advance.

It's quite nice to walk in Qingcheng Back mountain at this time, most of the days are good weather,pretty blue sky on December.Still pretty waterfall even though the water level is lower.

It's off season there,so it will be very peaceful there.

Based on your condition,recommend to you the below route:

Tai'an Old Town- Feiquangou-Youyicun-Wulonggou-Tai'an Old Town, about 4 hours to do this hiking.

Xi'an, China

Hi, there:

It does take you that much time ascending & descending the mountain. To walk from the back of the mountain really allows you getting close to the nature, the path winds through the mountains and beautiful trees, along the way, you do see some waterfalls , not as big as that is the rainy season. but still good to see. This is better than taking the chair lift.

Hi all,

In the end, we only did the front mountain. We took the 9:31am high speed train, hiked all the way up to Laojunge, took the cable down, and reached the foot of the mountain at about 3pm.

The scenery was not that spectacular, to be frank. But there were always interesting things, people, shops to look at. So it was a good excursion. See my video if you are interested. http://youtu.be/b538KCeicmI
