The grounds are incredibly well kept and manicured. Our host told us the history of the place and how the gate had to be rebuilt because of damage by earthquake.

Do not be fooled- you need 6 hours! It isn't very scenic due to all being under the cover of trees etc. some very very steep slopes with uneven grounds. the temples on the long route are not particularly amazing

We were tempted to take the back mountain, after we heard it was more beautiful and rugged, but in the end we took the front mountain because we weren't sure if we had enough time. And I am soooo glad. It took us about 3 hours to walk the front (retrospectively I would have paid for the cable car). One... More

Not much to it to be honest. Before the ascension there's a nice lake with a boat - great for photos. After this, it's just boring. My advice is go in the spring or summer time, otherwise the visibility is really bad with all the smog/fog.

From my initial impression of the sky, I expected to be disappointed by this visit, but that wasn't the case. The ancient town was quite impressive and the scenery on the hike up the mountain (back route) was the equal of many I've seen in Tasmania, NZ, Canada and Japan. It wasn't just the odd fantastic view - there were... More

As a solo female traveler, this was a very easy day trip to make. I took the subway to Xipu station. There will signs for the railway. Go out the exit and the train station is literally next door. I asked for a return ticket to QingCheng. By default the ticket is standing so ask for a seat number. The... More

I went to this mountain with a couple of friends in the Winter and it was cold!! The temple at the top was covered in snow and it was snowing! The train takes you to the town and then it's a short journey to the entrance. The mountain has a lot of stairs so make sure to wear some comfortable... More

First, this mountain have the front and back side. Front side is a "short" walk, 30 minutes - 2 hours walk. I choosed the back part since is bigger and it's all about the nature. The back part is a 3 - 6 hours hike (3,5 hours for me). It's beautiful and in the end you have a small temple... More

My favourite attraction near Chengdu. The climb to the summit was beautiful though tough, about 1.5 hours. The monastery at the top is fully accessible to visitors and monks alike.
