  • There is a great lake in the middle of the mountain heel. It would take a lot of time for exploring the hold mountain. And be prepared for a long walk. 
  • I was expecting a see a lot of things from the top of the mountain but the city is so polluted, we were able to see anything. More roads are dangerous because the cars are coming has position and that there is no other choice than to walk on the road to visit or even get stuck in forest paths. The temples and other remaining in place are badly maintained and dull. Similarly for the cable car is not the 1st rusty age. Short disappointed by this visit, preferred Kaif temple downtown if you want to see beautiful things in Changsha

  • This Park is very large. Worth using transport cars to circulate within the Park. The ascent is steep and long. In the days I could visit was too foggy and this limited a lot the quality of my visit. Within the park there are several monuments to see. It is necessary a long time to see everything and free to walk. Much frequented by locals.
