We just completed our vacation here late November/early December, far fewer tourists than high season, which was perfect to be able to take photos without battling for a good spot and feeling like cattle.

We received a good map and recommendations from the Hotel Pullman concierge. The bus shuttles within the park and back to the Wulingyuan area where we were staying are free and made traveling to different areas easy. The bus queues are clearly marked but the shuttles are not always parked at these queues so we had to ask the drivers to verify the destinations. The shuttles run in distinctive loops so if you get on the wrong bus, it won't be difficult to just circle back.

We started at the western entrance and purchased the standard 4 day pass (does not include cable cars or Bailong Elevator). We took the cable car up and immediately hopped on the shuttle to Tianzi Mountain scenic area (the direct cable car to this area was closed during our visit). The Tianzi trail required some stairway climbing but very manageable and offered excellent spots for photos of the karst mountains. Again we took the shuttle to reach the Hallelujah Mountain scenic area. The First Bridge of the World decorated with red ribbon and locks, Hallelujah Mountain, and the general scenery was breathtaking. It was a clear day when we were there, I think some clouds to allow the peaks to poke through would have make the scenery even more magical. This trail led us to the Bailong Elevator which we paid to use to descend to the free shuttle back to Wulingyuan, super convenient

Buy a 4 day pass, and use it, the sights are fantastic. It is a little expensive to ride the elevator each time and the cable car costs as well, but the walking and sights are brilliant. The elevator costs 72 yuan each way, do it once if possible, it is the tallest in the world at the moment. The buses around the park are free and there are many stops. The walks around the park are many and you do need a good map. To do the glass walk around the side of the mountain will cost you 5 yuan for slippers, don't go on a misty day as it is not as frightening. We stayed in Wulingyuan so we could be closer to the park. The Grand Canyon and Tianmen Mountain are only a 40-50 minute bus ride away.

This place is quite impressive just to view the mountains and its different imaginary formations. One can see old man, a family, a dog ,a mouse and others. Its up to you. The ride up by cable car can be a bit scary for people with vertigo but you can just take the elevator without the fear. Up on the mountain you have to do a bit of walking around the place. There's a glass walkway which is quite an experience.

An absolutely beautiful hike. The stunning views and are worth the overcrowded walkways and hike trails. The national park was, unfortunately, layered in thin smog. Mid level of fitness needed. Best not have a fear of heights either.

If there is one park you see in China, see this one. Despite the hordes of tourists, poor signage, the views of the Karst cliffs are nothing short of spectacular. Plan ahead, budget three days, get a finder scanned ticket and enjoy.
