Hiking this mountain is not difficult as there are stairs to guide you to the summit. The mountain was hiked by the greatest leaders in China(1st emperor of China, Mao, etc.). Watching the sunrise at the summit is priceless.

What an amazing experience and a beautiful place. There isn't much for english speaking and highly recommend a tour guide to take you. It's beautiful and well worth the hike up!! With our big North American feet- I recommend taking the gondola down- it would have been too dangerous to go down. Our 8 year old is a good hiker... More

Here are some updates to add to the extensive reviews below. I visited in early December. Officially winter, but it was not too cold only about 4 degrees in daytime. Here's our trip program from Beijing to Tai'shan for a 24 visit. Left Beijing on G163 arrived Tai'an at 1230. Caught a taxi from Highspeed station to Daimiao Temple (23... More

The mountain is very high and a great hike. If you are into hiking, stairs, great architecture and history, this is a great hike to do. But like EVERYWHERE in China, it is very crowded, so keep this in mind. I enjoyed the mountain and climbed it 2 out of the 3 days I was there, but keep in mind,... More

This is an atmospheric climb, punctuated by shrines and vendors. It's many steps yes, but the steps are wide and well built and there are plenty of places to rest. You can go down in the cable car!

We went up Mount Tai by coach, a designated mid-size vehicle and then cable car. A short walk to climb up the summit was required and I only walked up to less than half of the stairs as an elderly family member was with me. We went to the Confucius Temple instead and it was overlooked or not seen by... More

Cable car ride was a pleasure which brings us to mid level where there were cafes and hotels. Climb up the mountain was very good as it was a sunny day with light wind. Although the steps may be a little challenging to navigate, nonetheless the climb was exhilarating and worth the scenic and fantastic view from the top.

If you are interested in climbing the mountain or in more history/info - you can check out the great review by TMT 1004 - posted a few reviews before mine. The four of us are all 65+ y.o.

Great mountain! The view was great and a good 3-hour workout climb if you start from the middle of the mountain. However, if your planning a night-trip up, make sure you see the weather forecast because fog and rain is common.

Was part of a tour group with Mount Tai as one of the places of interest. Unfortunately, was only give an hour and fifteen minutes to explore the mountain before leaving for another destination. Unfortunately the place was filled with Chinese nationals and few foreigners, so be prepared to rub shoulders and squeeze amongst throngs of people; which made the... More
