These are the steep, rocky mountains you see in so much of traditional Chinese art. It's impressive and beautiful. The tram ride is a treat. Seeing the sunrise is a big group event among the Chinese, like going to see the sunset in Key West...More

Nature Hsu is a very good guide.. I used him, and recommend. Using a guide makes the experience more smooth and enjoyable, especially with getting tickets and transfers in and out of the area.
