  • To reach this mountain bus leaves from the station and costs ¥ 24. It takes a 1 h 30. Almost reach the bus stopped and boarded taxi drivers who said that it was there so that you come down and you take them. The end of the journey is in the bus station and there take another bus, the 101 which costs ¥ 2. There are also mini-buses that leave you at the entrance but they cost ¥ 25. The journey lasts 5 minutes and then walk about 2 km to the entrance. The road is flat and very nice. You can also pay ¥ 10 to take you in electric cars. This mountain is considered the paradise of Taoism and it was called the green city. It is one of the sacred mountains of Taoism in China. Anyone who came up there was planting a tree. It is world heritage of the Unesco. This part of the mountain is back. It is considered to be more religious and the other part is more than nature. In both there are temples, pagodas, caves, a Lake, pavilions and lush vegetation. Upon arrival, we have a beautiful Taoist temple. Nobody knew there speak English and they could not tell us. At the entrance there are a few lockers to buy the tickets for the cable car. Costs ¥ 90 (students ¥ 45). If you want to upload to walk it takes 2 or 3 hours. Up to the cable car is there than getting enough. It is located on the other side of the Lake. We had to cross it by boat (¥ 5) because the pedestrian road was cut. The cableway's cabins. Once above touch enough climb on foot. There are beautiful temples. To climb to the top to see the pagoda should go up about 600 steps. There was mist and not seen nothing but it is worth climbing the pagoda is very nice and inside there is a large Buddha.

  • If you like to "get away from it all, this is the place to go. the opposite of the City with its great bustle, this offers plenty of views, hikes and CLEAN AIR.  more »
  • Wooden paths going up the mountains, in a place we could use even a cable car. At cooler temperatures, sure no problem, in the summer when high temperatures and high humidity is certainly a demanding company. Many takeaways and restaurants on the way. Meals and drinks can be bought everywhere. Carrier offer to carry the hill people up or down. The risk of stumbling should be not so small. We have not dared to make use of the services.
