  • My coworkers (Chinese) organized this excursion. The landscapes are wonderful and the experience of climbing along the path of the Emperor seemed a good idea, but I have to say that all the way is very hard. You can take a shuttle bus from the red door until the middle of the road, where you can link to the cable car up to nearly the top. Since there is a small rise completely affordable. I think would be a good combination of experience without exhausting climb the second half walking, i.e. from where leave you the bus. So is walking to the top without making the 7000 steps in the traditional way. You don't need to carry food or water, you can buy all along all the way (which gives you a bit of beach bars rather than sacred mountain room air). Mood with the rise
