The rocks are pretty incredible, however it has unfortunately become completely overrun with tourists waving selfie sticks and tour groups. The main collection of rocks (the one in all the photos) is literally surrounded by people in the summer, you can't get anywhere close... Further...More

We did the tour with a Chinese guide that spoke English. We were able to take our time with the tour, not feeling rushed at all. It's a lot of climbing, but well worth the work. Scenery absolutely breathtaking.
