Mount Hengshan, Hengyang
(3.7/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
One of the Five Great Mountains of China, Mount Hengshan has remained a sacred site since the Zhou dynasty, due to its strong Taoist presence. Of the five sacred mountains, this one stands out as the least commercialized and developed, so take a lovely hike to admire ancient temples carved into the rocks along the route. Alternatively, you can ride a cable car part of the way and walk the rest. Panoramic views, and, depending on the season, a flower-covered summit await your arrival at the peak. The trail can become very busy, so it’s best to start early and finish early to avoid crowds along the route. Make Mount Hengshan part of your personalized Hengyang itinerary using our Hengyang itinerary planner.

  • 地方漂亮 但沒用 買了門票包含電平車 那我坐到南台寺 當我看完南台寺其實很早 我找車回去磨境台打算沿路回去 他們說沒車 那麼近 叫我用走的吧 時間很早 才3點下午 是那招 那邊的人很沒禮貎 收完錢跟本沒服務 就坑錢 收完錢不理你 幸好我覺得國內遊總是沒譜 所以反過來走 幸好我反過來走 不然就被你們把了我一道 感覺極度不良好 一直都推銷人要燒香 國內很普遍 
  • 中国衡山是最适合看中国部分人丑陋一面的地方,大多数人去这山不是登山健步的,都是烧香拜佛为主,各大网站卖门票都捆绑发财香火一起卖的,真是迷信和无知一团糟。所以少有见徒步登山,修的路都是汽车道,赚死景区的车了,忠烈祠却是游客甚少,真讽刺! 
  • 山有水则灵,在衡山,山有多高水有多长,可以玩水玩到尽兴。山上也有可以住宿的农家乐,条件还可以,胜在干净。因为水多,所以看到云海的几率也比较大,山峰在云海中若隐若现的样子特别的仙,让人觉得照片上那些令人惊叹的美景是真的存在的。 但如果是寻求奇险的话衡山就未必适合。 另:山上有些月份是看不到那种日出的。
