  • I learned about this place by chance, saw on the Internet a photo with a dragon on rock, and decided that if I'll be back in Beijing, then definitely I will go there. And finally went. We have not chosen the best time-the October holidays. But the people turned out to be not so much as a thought. The route was built in a circle. First you take the boat and drive 10 minutes along the river and enjoy the views of mountains, blue sky. Boat brings you to the pier and planted. Back to sit on the boat, you will need to go uphill. It will not take much time. Near the Marina there is a hire rowing boats. To return to the "cruise" suggest a ride by cable car to the top of the mountain, offering beautiful views of the Valley and the neighbouring villages. Also there is a small shrine. A little bit about how to get there: first, we wanted to go on the bus, but when Google map showed that in the way we conduct 4:00, decided to find another way. And found. In Beijing there are State tourism company that organizes tours around Beijing. Buses depart at 8.30 am from Zhujiang station. Exit B2. Buy tickets in advance is not necessary. Just arrive in the morning, there will be buses. Next to the bus stand, where the table will sell tickets. The truth is one, BUT there will be a tour, if not we will take 15. So before you start selling, opposite signs route queue. If you don't speak Chinese, it is best to print the name of the place (or a photo with a dragon on the wall) and show those who will sit at the table. They will tell you where to stand. We were lucky. The bus took the full. It took a couple of hours on the road. On arrival at the place of the driver gave his phone number and said, how much you want to be on the bus (the Park 4:00 is given). I advise you to take a picture of the bus numbers. So easier to search. Since we were the only foreigners on the bus, the driver fall worried that we are not lost. Returned to Beijing hours 7 pm.

  • Reviews below are quite accurate but fail to mention a few very important issues. The gorge and mountains are well worth the boat trip. We bought an 'all inclusive' ticket at 150rmb but that excludes ...  more »
  • My girlfriend and I exchange students in China, so we traveled on their own buses. Read everywhere about what expensive takes about 1.5 hours, but -2 is actually much more. There we travelled three hours and back more than four. Perhaps the case in national holidays and a large number of Chinese people traveling at the moment. Nevertheless, it's worth it. At the checkout, we bought a ticket for 20 Yuan (50% discount for students) to the park entrance. Boating we weren't going to, but when entered the Park, found that paid part of the Park to do nothing specifically (so you need to either Ascend by cable car, or hop on a boat). Decided to take a boat ticket for 100 Yuan (1000 p) (no discounts, children under 120 cm free), since already risen on the escalator-Dragon there. Very beautiful and picturesque, nothing to say, but in my opinion still is not worth this 1000r-firstly, we skated briefly, secondly, in the boat sits thirty people (normally they earn with these boats:)), who, to put it mildly, very loud talking, what prevents enjoy the moment. On the boat there are still Chinese tour guide, if you understand Chinese. Then we decided to climb the cable car for 50 RMB is worth it, really liked it-is where walk + beautiful landscapes (though we noticed that the left side of the slope is somehow closed-prominent long track along the rocks, but there not allowed-very sorry). Overall, nice place, worth a visit if you're not choosy tourist and rest in Beijing.
