  • If the pure mountain climbing, there is no very attractive scenery. If you understand the general experience of the Battle of the Shi and understand the Chinese near modern generation, you can come and see the martyrs.

  • University four years climb countless times Yuelu Mountain, every climb to make people feel comfortable. In the rainy days of Yuelu Mountain, there are still many people there to exercise. Compared to other tourist attractions, the individual think Yuelu Mountain or live in Changsha, the locals, students climb more, only occasionally appear a tourist team. At one time, there were people in uniform who exercised, quickly and neatly. To climb Yuelu Mountain must remember to pack rubbish oh ~

Where to stay in Changsha

The modern city of Changsha, the provincial capital, has plenty of accommodations to choose from. Primarily located to the east of the river, the places to stay here include high-rise luxury hotels, simple guesthouses, hostels, and rental apartments. Wuyi Avenue, along which the metro runs, represents a good place to look for accommodations, with this arterial road leading east from the downtown area to a major train station. North and south of this arterial road, towering luxury hotels sit in clusters of new developments, with malls, restaurants, and offices nearby, while more budget-friendly options sit on residential side streets.
