Length: 4.6 mi • Est. 2 h 54 m
Qingcheng is a very heavily trafficked climb up a wide footpath that has manmade stairs. It is a moderate climb that takes you past Daoist and Buddhist shrines and temples. It is one of China's sacred Daoist mountains so it is worth the climb just in light of that, but it is not for those seeking the solitude and beauty of a virgin forest mountain hike. It is a protected park that costs 110 RMB to enter. Show more
