We feel sorry that we do not offer Hefei hikings tours, and the routes above are just provided for your reference. Tianzhu Mountain is famous for its unique landform and natural sceneries, whereas, Jiuhua Mountain is more wel-known for its Buddist culture. If you prefer to natural sceneries, Tianzhu is a good choice. Thanks for your inquiry.
