- Overview -
There are 2 cable car up to the mountain top - Mount Longwangshan. Yuyiyuan Cable Car goes from mountian foot to half mountain, Longwangshan Cable Car goes from half mountain to summit. The Glass Observation Deck is on the summit of Mount Longwangshan.
- Itinerary -
The 1st journey I recommend to take both 2 cable car to mountain top (20 minute for each ride, total extra RMB200 for 2 rides per person). If you walk, 3 hours one way, you will not have energy to go down the mountain.
Arrive at the Glass bottom Observation Deck on the summit of Mount Longwangshan. 30 minute free time here.
Go down the mountain by cable car or hiking. I recommend hiking. It takes about 2 hours. Walk through an imposing valley stretching from east to west, a place which has earned its fame by the narrow linear view from the bottom of the valley. Enjoy the view of large areas of huge rocks in various shapes and sizes and perpetual creeks and waterfalls, ornamented with pines, canopies of bamboo and flowers.
While you take this escorted walking trip with your tour guide, your driver will find a lunch place outside the National Park. Lunch time is 1:00.
You will be transferred back to your hotel in downtown Beijing at about 4:30.
