Grand Black Mountain of Dalian, Dalian

4.4
#2 of 21 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 .

  • With these mountains not only offers wonderful views of the city, but the rise is very beautiful, but places can be heavy, if you are not in the best physical shape. Get there quite easily without guides and travel firms. Take the Metro to Central station and grab your ticket to Tostem station or Phoenix peak ticket price 5 Yuan. But the station Development zone (Kajfachu) you need to go to another platform and go to the station of Tostem or Phoenix peak. We drove to Phoenix peak, but on the way back, returned with Tostem station. Distance to this park is about the same. Near the Metro are small taxis, they drove us over 15 Yuan prior to the upgrade. At the beginning of the park there is a booth with the cashier that the ticket is written 20 Yuan, but we got through without paying, nobody at the cashier was not perhaps that in winter do not take money. The mountain goes normal landscaped walkway. At the beginning of the recovery has a beautiful monastery. Total track 1301 stair, when will climb has written how many steps you have gone through. Along the way there are plenty of places where you can sit down, grab a bite to eat and enough beautiful places for photos. The heavy lifting begins after 700 steps, stairs sharply uphill with a large bias. Gradually enjoys beautiful views. At the top there are the monastery and offers a nice view. Next there are the road but with us it was closed, although if you wish, we would not stop. But we're already under the tired and we had more plans for this day and we did not go further. But you can see that the track goes back in the mountains and along the crest to adjacent vertices. Go down easy, but already a taxi at the beginning of the Park was not and we went on foot prior to the residential streets. When you reach a junction will fork to the right and left. Left the road you will print to the Metro right to Tostem Phoenix peak. Go 15-20 minutes from the intersection. Will go back stay in Kajfachu, and pokushajte, there are plenty of good restaurants and cafes.

  • 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.
