Grand Black Mountain of Dalian, Dalian

4.4
#1 of 19 in Nature in Dalian
Grand Black Mountain of Dalian boasts a verdant and dramatic rocky landscape, ancient structures, and panoramic views of the city below. Towering 663 m (2,175 ft) over the surrounding lands, it also ranks as the highest mountain in the Southern Liaodong Peninsula. Hike to the summit along a gravel trail that winds its way through forests with more than 500 different plant species, or take a road to close to the top, parking for a nominal fee. Once there, you'll be able to take in at least two ancient temple sites: one an imposing structure on a lower peak, the other a smaller Buddhist site carved into the mountainside. Expect to navigate over 1,000 steps along the mountain. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Grand Black Mountain of Dalian by using our Dalian trip maker tool .

  • A very interesting ride for those who like adventure and knowledge of local culture. The site provides visitation to temples and climb the mountain. Recommend rise for the first entry, for there you have access to various temples on the way to the second part of the mountain. If you prefer you can climb by car until the halfway point, but loses the most beautiful part of the site in my opinion. If you choose to go up by car, get off a bit and you will find a village with many temples and spectacular architecture.

  • Together with friends. It takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes to the Summit. Not-so-high mountain. I'm in the middle of a paragraph, you can take a break. When the weather is good day la top out the scenery. 1 hour 20 minutes by car from downtown Dalian, run.

  • This place is worth a visit. Temples of so-so, but kind of charming. Unusually, it was an uphill climb the stairs:) TA is felt ancient, untamed Asia, China. All advise.
