I visited Changsha during a very hot period in June. So my host suggested that we climb up to Mount Yeulu in the afternoon to catch some breeze. As I felt enough out-of-shape and jet-lagged that I thought this exercise would be good in inducing...More

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.

If you’re a trail runner, yuelu mountain is not a bad run. There are some clear paths and some challenging hills. Just be careful for other mountain bikers, they will give a holler when coming around a corner so just keep your music low if...More

It's very easy to get to and not overly commercial, although it's touristy. There is a lot of history and stories around this mount. You simply must go.

Worth a visit for a couple of hours or so. A good uphill walk on a nice day, climbing 300m. Quite crowded on the Saturday I visited, but not overwhelming. Easy to find a taxi when you get back down.
