A good afternoon walk up the mountain or use the tourist bus to the top. Choose a clear day! At the bottom is the library where Mao studied. Lots of beautiful scenes.

Best to take a green sightseeing bus (20 yuan one way. 30 return) as the top is very far. This nice mountain is very badly managed with poor signage and maps with no scale.
