The gate of Shibaozhai (Precious Stone Stronghold)

Shibaozhai is an isolated steep peak rising almost straight up from the northern bank of the Yangtze River. A magnificent red twelve-story pavilion was built on the mountain during the reign of Emperor Jiaqing of the Qing Dynasty. Tourists can climb to the top by a roundabout staircase. It is a wonderful site from which to view Yangtze River scenery. Attraction Intro: Shibaozhai

Bertrand, the usual route is to climb the pavilion to reach the top and get down from the back of the pavilion. The steps in the pavilion is very steep. However, the steps on the back side are easier to step down. Perhaps, you might climb the steps from the back side.

Before reaching Shibaozhai, you need to pass a suspension bridge. The bridge shakes if there are people on it. Please walk carefully.

We will be visiting Shanghai, Beijing, Wuhan, Yueyang, Xiling Gorge area, Shibaozhai, Chongqing and Xi'an the last week of August and first week of September.

What would you suggest bringing for clothing? Besides an umbrella and rain shoes. Sweaters? Light jacket? Or just long sleeve cotton shirts? Tee shirts?

Actually, most of these cities are still in hot summer. I have went to Wuhan-yangtze river-Chonqing from Shanghai at the end of August, 2007. Very hot, so short-sleeves T-shirt is enough. Although it may have heavy rain suddenly, the rain just lasted for a couple of minutes. Well, at the end of last August I have been to Shanghai, muggy days and then heavy rains for a whole day. Just cool for a short time. Both of summer shoes and warterproof shoes are okey~
