The mountain is very high and a great hike. If you are into hiking, stairs, great architecture and history, this is a great hike to do. But like EVERYWHERE in China, it is very crowded, so keep this in mind. I enjoyed the mountain and climbed it 2 out of the 3 days I was there, but keep in mind,... More

This is an atmospheric climb, punctuated by shrines and vendors. It's many steps yes, but the steps are wide and well built and there are plenty of places to rest. You can go down in the cable car!

We went up Mount Tai by coach, a designated mid-size vehicle and then cable car. A short walk to climb up the summit was required and I only walked up to less than half of the stairs as an elderly family member was with me. We went to the Confucius Temple instead and it was overlooked or not seen by... More

Cable car ride was a pleasure which brings us to mid level where there were cafes and hotels. Climb up the mountain was very good as it was a sunny day with light wind. Although the steps may be a little challenging to navigate, nonetheless the climb was exhilarating and worth the scenic and fantastic view from the top.

Great mountain! The view was great and a good 3-hour workout climb if you start from the middle of the mountain. However, if your planning a night-trip up, make sure you see the weather forecast because fog and rain is common.

Was part of a tour group with Mount Tai as one of the places of interest. Unfortunately, was only give an hour and fifteen minutes to explore the mountain before leaving for another destination. Unfortunately the place was filled with Chinese nationals and few foreigners, so be prepared to rub shoulders and squeeze amongst throngs of people; which made the... More
