we are planning the ascent to Mount Taishan at the beginning of august.
We are currently considering two options:
1. going up late morning and going down late afternoon
2. going up mid-afternoon, wait for sunset (about 7:00 PM) and descend in the evening.
I think it should be nice to see the sunset from above and the temperature may be lower, but is it OK to descend in the dark? I also know that there will be no cable car or bus after sunset, in case we get tired...
