“Nice Mountain but Scary Cable Car”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

I went to the top of the mountain with a cable car, and the journey was scary to be honest. It's like an open cable car, so you can feel the wind, and the trees if it's tall enough. On the top of it you will see the beautiful scenery of Nanjing city and some observatories but only one is available for you to see. Don't forget to visit Sun Yat Sen's temple while you're there.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Get on the little mini train at the bottom and make sure you get to see as a minimum Dr Sun Yat Sen's mausoleum and the Ming Tombs. Keep your eyes preened for the drives in the woodlands.

“A Must Visit Place”
Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

This place is where you can find everything. It is huge and you must come here early in the morning to really enjoy the place. Climbing the stairs can be a struggle but the view is fantastic. You will feel that it is worth the effort. You can find cable car here as well if you're looking the best place to visit Nanjing. This is the place you shouldn't miss

“Review specifically for the cable car”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

The cable car ride is nice but do not expect great scenery; not well looked after. The top is much the same, not much to see, everything was quite unkempt.

Other parts of the mountain itself is much better; so if you don't have the time, skip the cable car.

“Nice way to spend a day”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

Plenty to see here. Plan to walk miles and see many things and plenty of beauty in the spring. Not a lot of old stuff here but this is part of the national park with many days of sightseeing needed to see it all.
