“Breathtaking !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

Some of my friends hiked up the mountain but we took a bus. Don't feel like you are cheating taking the bus, cable car, or motorbike because once you get there you will be hiking a lot keep an eye on the map and signs and be sure to visit the various peaks. Take the cable car down!! the view is incredible and it is super fun jumping on and off of a moving cable car. The one thing I would do differently is hiring a motorbike going up. It would be an adventure riding on the back of the bike going up the winding endless roads.

“3 hour hike to the top”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

Although there are cable cars to bring you to the top of Jinyun Mountain, I decided to hike up the mountain. It was a long 3 hr hike but worth it. Upon reaching the reserve, we toured around and made our way to Shizi Peak (Lion's Peak). Shizi Peak is the highest out of 9 [peaks that Jinyun Mountain has. The view is splendid and you feel like you are in the clouds. The reserve is a nice area for people who are looking to get away from the commotion of Chongqing.

“It is ok”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2012

it is very far away from the downtown of Chongqing, i suggest you to spend two days there. Do not return in a day.

The air is fine, scenery is ok, the food is acceptable. What else?

Anyway, it is one of the good place of Chongqing.

“Great break from the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2011

If your in Chongqing and in need of a break jinyunshans relatively close and easily accessible. By bus we went from guanyinqiao to beibei, beibei to jinyunshan and all in all it took 2 1/2hrs. there are plenty of guesthouses down the mountian from the park entrance where we got a double bed with shower for 100/night which was basic but clean.

The parks beautiful, we followed the main path round the edge of the park and worked up a small sweat on some of the steps.

Well worth a visit, head out early in the morning, wander around the park for the afternoon and back that night/the next morning.
