This excursion is a little more user friendly for those who are not able to climb a lot of steps. Although you have to pay extra, this site has cable cars that will take you to the top of the mountain. This opens this excursion...More

I recently went on the Ghost City tour for the purpose of evaluating the newly opened cable car system. I thought you may be interested in our observations and may wish to share with other visitors. Ming Mountain and the approximate 400 steps to the...More

We were on a river cruise tour and they offered this as an extra, something like $25pp. Lot's of steps and really not a lot to see. I would blow this one off!

A free excursion offered on our cruise. Not much to see and the guide makes it a lot more interesting with her humour.....”take your time to climb the steps, no need to hurry to hell”. For Asians this attraction would not be interesting but if...More

Visited here as part of our 5 day Yangtze River Cruise. Lots of steps so would be quite uncomfortable during summer. It was warm enough when we went in October. It was packed with locals as we were there during China's National Holiday Week. There...More

Fengdu dates back over 1000 years and is full of images, statues, figurines , etc all representing residents of the spirit (after life) world. The walk up to the top level is rather strenuous.

Visited as a shore excursion from our Yangtze cruise ship, well worth a visit plenty to see and do. Great photo opportunities.

This was probably my least favourite of the different excursions we did along the Yangtze. Visiting temples isn't my thing whilst it was interesting to learn a little about some of the traditional Chinese beliefs it was very dark with some not so nice things...More

It's a neat place to learn a little more about Taoist and Buddhist beliefs. The temple complex is actually a replica of the original, which was sadly razed during the Cultural Revolution. So although most of it dates back to only the last 10-20 years,...More
