Taishan East Road, Tai'an

4.6
#1 of 72 in Outdoors in Shandong
Make your way up the stone steps of Taishan East Road to reach the peak of Mount Tai, uncovering treasures such as temples, rock inscriptions, and carvings along the way. Nearly 7,200 steps make up this challenging route, though you can also walk just the first 5 km (3.1 mi) and then take either a bus or cable car to the peak. Experienced hikers can make the climb in just a few hours, but you may prefer to take your time and enjoy the scenery as you ascend. No need to set off with heavy backpacks as you will find the route lined with kiosks. Take a warm jacket if you plan on descending after sunset.

  • Morning 7 am started climbing gate Tianyi arrived. It is early morning, towards the Chinese were quite numerous. Taishan admission ticket at the line, waited for about 10 minutes. Climbed one man had too much rest, but took about 90 minutes zhongtian gate, sweat in exhausted I was. (Very tough) zhongtian gate ago, in some places, you can get very cheap drinks, food, fruits, etc. Is so far, the weather was fine, looked to beautiful mountain gondola ride, and fog and wind came. It is cold when you get off the gondola, and trembling. Many Chinese military green coats being rented, come I. Because the wind is pretty cold comfort. From there, through the fog 3 bays 0 minutes. This is not very strict. Top was available because it was too top 10. Zorozoro was travelling to ride in the gondola back down and was getting crowded. A pleasant Tai ⛰ was.
