 Friendly Tips

The large luggage cannot be taken to the mountain, so it is advised to deposit in Shanghai or the foot of the mountain and only take along with a backpack. To save time, please tell the guide if you have large luggage in advance. It is suggested to bring plenty of water with you as it is expensive at the mountain. Hours of hiking with steep or narrow trails are expected, so it is better to bring a really comfortable pair of shoes. Besides, wisely bring a raincoat and a hiking stick regardless of the time of year. But you do not need to burden yourself with a heavy load.

It is reputed as the most beautiful art village in China. Local people here live a simple and peaceful life by farming, raising silkworm, picking tea and making handcrafts. Walking around, you may see elders washing cloths by the river.
