Where to stay in Wutai County

Most visitors to Wutai County opt to stay close to the mountain itself, with the place a long-established center of pilgrimage and tourism, and thus well-stocked when it comes to accommodations. The village of Taihuai has a good set of accommodations, close to the main sites and situated amid dramatic scenery. Characterful hotels and simple guesthouses make up the bulk of accommodations here, with some benefitting from additional facilities, such as restaurants. Look south along the river from Mount Wutai for more options along the riverbank.
