All reviews cable car day trip nice hike walk up mini buses fast train beautiful scenery return ticket coming down steep climb scenic area the high speed train bus station small lake worth the effort worth the trip taoist temple
By car it takes about 90 minutes from the city to get to!
Be prepared for a lot of walking, but the scenery is beautiful and very green plants and trees along the pathways to the top! Mount Qingcheng is considered the home of Taoism...More
The mountain is truely beautiful and well worth a visit to. I took the train, which you can book on trip.com
You will only need the ticket referance number and maybe your passport to collect the ticket from the station. I got the train from...More
What a fantastic and fun 1/2 day hike up the back side of the Mountain to the cable car station. Our guide Snow from China Highlights was FANTASTIC TOO. It rained the day we did the hike, which added to the beauty and setting.
This is a great escape from the city and absolutely worth to see. The hike is not too exhausting while there is also an option to take a cable car for the middle section. On the foot of the mountain, there is the Six Senses...More
Qingcheng Mountain is not for the unfit - there is a lot of walking uphill & downhill to do. The steps are uneven and often narrow; and when it's wet, they can get slippery. We took the ferry boat across the lake & the cable...More
Mount Qingcheng is beautiful and the temples and caves scattered throughout its many, many kilometres of steps are interesting to see.
Getting to the site is easy enough with the high speed train from Xipu - just don’t assume that if you show up in...More
Do not waste your money on a guided tour it is something you can do yourself even if you do not speak Chinese. The guided English tour companies are a complete rip off! The front Mountain is a little on the busy side and costs...More
Self arranged trip using high speed rail:
645pm qingchenshan > xipu
When you reach the station, follow the locals and they will walk to shuttle buses where you can go to the front or back mountain (25 yuan 2 way tix)
We spent time in Beijing and Chengdu, and Mount Qincheng was definitely the highlight of our trip. It was recommended to us by Lily of WestChinaGo, and we are so glad we decided to visit. It is definitely a climb and takes a few hours,...More
Either is good, in different ways, and both are well connected by day shuttles. Personally I like Qingcheng better, more to see and the nature is a plus, for they boast great unique air quality, which I can testify to. The... More
Either is good, in different ways, and both are well connected by day shuttles. Personally I like Qingcheng better, more to see and the nature is a plus, for they boast great unique air quality, which I can testify to. The hike through stone-steps in QIngcheng is much more extensive but also much easier than usual due to the high concentration of negative oxygen ions. It is still an exercise with a few miles of uphill walking. There is a stretch with an option of cable car, which was out of service when I was there! It is still worthwhile for me though.
