A good afternoon walk up the mountain or use the tourist bus to the top. Choose a clear day! At the bottom is the library where Mao studied. Lots of beautiful scenes.

I think this place is an average mountain park. Get famouse from the praise from the china first chairman for the Falls scenic view. there is a paid car ride service for visitor to reach the peak or to get down the mountain.

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

An alternative would be a couple of bus rides. Taxi easiest. If the visibility is poor, forget it. Today is beautiful but most of October has been bad.
