Yuntaishan Global Geopark, Henan, China. The park offers some of the most unique and picturesque landscapes. The dramatic rocks and mountains are loved not only by tourists, but by scientists and geologists as well. The park features various scenic attractions, including waterfalls, hanging springs, mountains, gorges and lakes.

A nature site that contains few sub sites (stream creeks and mountain peaks). What we did:

Red Rock Gorge 红石峡
It is the main attraction of a site with reddish rock and water in shades of green. Route from one bus stop to another of about 1.5 miles.
Tanpu Gorge 潭 瀑 峡
We advance with the right bus line to this area and there are 3 routes to different valleys. In April, when there is little water, this is the only route worth doing (4 kilometers including round trip). In the summer when there is more water then there is another route to a very high waterfall (but seasonal and did not exist in April) worth doing then and maybe to add a day in the area.
Zhuyu Peak 茱萸峰
You take a bus back to the previous point and there you change to the line that climbs to the top. The climb is through a series of rather short tunnels, but some of them make a 180 degree turn inside the mountain, quite amazing.
From the summit station we walked (a hard climb of about 1300 meters but with a height change of about 500 meters) to the temple at the summit. It is advisable to go up the blue track so as not to repeat the same way downhill. Sometimes this path is limited only to the downstream, but there is no enforcement of the subject, and even some of the Chinese ignore it. From there a descant and another about 1,800 meters to a transparent path sticking to the cliff and at a height of about 100 meters. The view is very beautiful but the maintenance of the path is no good and therefore has already lost some of its transparency.
From there we went down by cable car (new only from this year) and a 3 minute ride to the park. For those who want to avoid this difficult part, you can take the cable car up and only make the transparent path or from the bus stop to go directly to the path (this is a moderate hike)

One can easily spend 2 full days in the park, and still not see everything. Lots of dramatic stone gorges and beautiful waterfalls. Scenic routes through the gorges, always a lot of stairs to climb. The Red Stone Gorge for me was the most beautiful of the sites in the park. Long walk to the glass walkway, and horrible to do during October week. Never ever go to any scenic park during a Chinese holiday, crowded is an understatement and LONG queues to get on the buses and different sections of the park.
