Route Details: Entrance- Sightseeing Bus - Cable Car - Forest Hiking Trail - Mushroom Stone - Old Golden Summit - Chengen Temple – Red Clouds Golden Summit -Cable Car - Sightseeing Bus – Exit Fanjingshan Scenic Area – Drive to Tongren
We take a sightseeing bus nearby the entrance for about 20mins to Yu’ao Station and change to the cable car there. Being in the cable car for another 20mins, we may have a bird’s eye view of the prosperous green forest of Mountain Fanjing.
We start to hike from the Forest Hiking Road with 45mins up to the famous landmark Mushroom Stone. It attracts numerous visitors by its unique outline of the bigger top quadrate right on the smaller quadrate bottom, which looks like a mushroom and seems fragile to fall. However, for one million years, it just stands so still there after centuries of natural weathering.
Continue to hike for about 30mins to the Old Golden Summit and walk up to its peak where we could appreciate the panorama of Fanjingshan and the Red Clouds Golden Summit clearly from a distance. Later on, we walk down gradually to the Cheng En Temple that was built first from the Ming Dynasty and one of the four royal temples at Fanjingshan.
Red Clouds Golden Summit, a thumb-like peak with one of the main appeals of visiting Fanjingshan from the summit , is described by UNESCO as an "island of metamorphic rock in a sea of karst". Take your challenge to hike along the narrow and steep steps with iron chain up to it. You will be rewarded with the panoramic view of Fanjingshan and enjoying the feeling of walking in the sky. (Note: You may choose to go up or not considerring your physical condition at that time. Just tell your needs to the guide.)
At the end, take the cable car and sightseeing bus down to exit Fanjingshan Scenic Area. We drive back to Tongren for overnight accommodation. Have a good rest!
