The scenery of the mountains is unrivaled, the landscape is very dramatic. We decided to ascent using the Eastern cable car and descended the following day using the Western cable car.
You need to be very fit if you think that want to climb the mountain from the base - be warned!!
It is amazing that the area has been entirely paved and almost everywhere you go is either steps up or down, it can be jarring on the knees.
Also try avoid the major tour route, we found these paths to be very busy. The Chinese tourists also get much pleasure out of screaming off almost every viewing point - the Echo Wall does not echo with all the noise yet they persist!
For people looking for tranquil nature, think again. If you are looking for breathtaking scenery that is quite unique, make a point of getting here.
