It wasn't very difficult to reach the top if you take a bus to mid way up and take a cable car to arrive at the station on top. The last climb was a few hundred steps but with well laid steps it wasn't a...More

We climbed Tai Shan via the central route, which took us around 3 hours. Starting out at Dai Temple, the route first leads you to the edge of the city, into the forest and up the hill. We started early, around 06:30 in the morning...More

To all the haters - no it's ridiculously not cheap - but all 'attractions' are monetised all over the world. Just pay up and enjoy it for what it is. Perhaps that money is being used to keep the steps clean, and the vegetation maintained.......More

A good walk to the top of the mountain. We wanted to walk up and get the cable car down. However, there was a blizzard so had to walk back down which can be a bit hard on the knees. But good place to see.

it is not the most scenic hike, if compared with Huashan, for instance. The first part is boring, even (only trees and asphalt path). it gets more interesting from the cable car onwards. can be quite crowded.

There is always construction going on for new roads or facilities. Nevertheless you can still climb the mountain.
