Itinerary Features

Use Our Train Ticket Booking Service for the Suggested Itinerary:

We suggest tourists to take the bullet train from Shanghai to Mt. Yandang (or Yandang Shan Mountain), and return. It is convenient and cheap. But the problem is tourists should know some Mandarin. It is because there is no English service at the railway station, and you should speak with the taxi driver to tell them where to go.

 

For the bullet train, the seats are classified into three classes:

2nd class, 1st class and business class.

 

The business class is the most expensive, only 3 seats at one row.

The 1st class is with 4 seats at one row.

The 2nd class is with 5 seats at one row. But in our idea, the 2nd class seat is already comfortable enough.

 

For the tour in Mt. Yandang, you can walk to the attractions you prefer to visit.

 

* For the hotel in Mt. Yandang

Although there is no high grade hotel at Mt. Yandang, you can choose the home stay or hostel or 3-star hotel at Xiang-Ling-Tou Village which is located right in the middle of the main scenic areas. They are not as luxurious as the high grade hotel, some of them may have no breakfast service or only have the simple breakfast service, But they are clean, convenient and comfortable.

In autumn, wild geese do gather in the marshes around the lake at the top of the mountain. But this area is hard to be reached. Peculiar and excellent natural landscape, universally significant and prominent scientific value as well as profound national mountains-and-waters culture are in perfect harmony in Mt. Yandang.
