I visited Yuntaishan in October. Weather was good - not too hot and a bit of breeze but it would have been best if it was a sunny day. There is quite a bit of walking (steps) so be prepared to walk for around 1.5 to 2 hours but worth every bit. Because it is a 5A sight, there was... More

Very scenic place for hiking. In this Red Stone Valley, you walk through tunnels, stone bridges and waterfalls. The hiking although up and down is not extremely difficult. The only thing is that it is full of Chinese tourists and if you can't keep up with traffic at certain spots, you would be pushed! Regardless it is a very beautiful... More

I am deducting points because of bad timing for our visit. There is no doubt that the history and scenery of the area makes it a desirable destination, but choose a time when 10 million others are not thinking the same. We visited in late August, summer vacation and because of the upcoming military parade in Beijing, entrance fees were... More

Yuntai Mountain or Yuntaishan Geopark is about 3 hours by bus/car from Zhengzhou. As I planned to use public buses to get to the area from Zhengzhou and very little English is spoken in the area I decided to use the services of an Zhengzhou based English speaking guide who I found doing a search on the internet. The trip... More

Yuntaishan is really beautiful. It's the best in my 2 weeks China backpack travel from Xian to Beijing. If you are at Luoyang, don't you dare give this place a miss. From Luoyang main bus station, there is only one bus to Yuntaishan and it leave at 9.20 am ( and leave from Yuntaishan back to Luoyang at 3 PM).... More

The straightforward path really made the whole experience easier. The Geopark in itself is something of wonder, this adventure must really be embarked on. The best thing is, that it is suitable for all ages and that is essential. The trek presents so many different perfect photo opportunities, with every step you take showing you a different perspective of the... More

Yuntai Mountain (云台山) in Henan Province received UNESCO World Geologic Park in 2004. It is the only scenic area in Henan that receives 5 titles- China 5A Grade Tourist Attraction, National Geologic Park, National Water Conservation Scenic Area, National Forest Park, and National Macaque Natural Reserve Area. Among 11 attractions, we visited two popular sites there- Red Stone Gorge (红石峡)... More

Prior to the visit, I was sort of burnt out with work. Upon reaching, the sight was so breathtaking that I felt rejuvenated almost immediately. The fresh air, the picturesque landscape, and everything in it, all made the trekking through the park feel so good that I am now thinking of revisiting the park. Definitely worth a visit. And another.

There are several beautiful sites in the geopark. As I went during the dry season, I couldn't see the gushing waterfalls. Nonetheless, the highlight of the tour was the red sand stone cliffs and stones surrounded by turquoise coloured lakes and rivers. In the words of my 13-year old son, "thought I only see such scenery on our computer screen!".... More
