This place is a tourist nightmare and completely overtaken by commercial interest. Massive construction is taking place to bring it further from the real thing. Buses ferry the hordes from one location to another like other chinese attractions with hefty entrance fees. Most tourists will...More

We visited and stayed for two nights, to allow a full day exploring. We had to carry the bags up hill for more than 30 minutes to find the hotel. No taxis or any transport and very few directions. The map you buy for RMB...More
