We hired a taxi to get up there, & were lucky that the queues weren't too bad (but still got pushed & shoved a bit). Loved the ride up the cable car, unfortunately it was a very cloudy, overcast day so the views weren't great...More

The cable car ride is expensive, old and uncomfortable. On every support of the ride there's a nice amplifier that has an annoying that constantly tells what you can and can't do, so no quiet ride as well. On top of the mountain there's only...More

Yaoshan is not a big mountain but it is the biggest locally. There is cable car to the top, although there is a (very) rough trail up and down for the brave or foolhardy. There may be other routes up and down but I forgot...More

The long wait in the queue with disgusting & loud crowd was finally rewarded with spectacular view from even on the lift. The sights of the famous Guilin karst were just mesmerizing. The museum at the end of the ride was a plus, though no...More

This is well worth the money - if you do it the smart way.. which is to say get a taxi (about 20 kuai from the city centre) or get the bus (number 13 I think.. about 2 kuai!) to Yaoshan dispense with a tour...More

I got up there by the chair lift, I guess no other motorized way to go up. I have seen peopel walking up there,its save and you dont have to go all the way up to make pictures for sunrise pictures.
