It is spectacular view from the platform. Great place to visit, less crowded than Great wall or Palace museum. However, you must prepare yourself to walk and climb. We went to easy path with walking up flat path for 50 min then climb up stairs...More

The area is about 2 hours from Beijing and the drive through the countryside is enjoyable. The glass bottom scenic area is amazing but it is an effort to get there. The chair lift is 200RMB return and then there are about another 30 minutes...More
