This is a great place to visit with children. we started at the entrance near the Shaolin temple and took a bus to the top of the mountain. It cost 70 yuan each but the kids were free. we hiked to Sky lake, bravery rock, qingyuan caves, Nantai village and viewing area, stupa master, yuanyuan cave, and finally Laozi. There are bathrooms and palaces to eat along the way but I reccomend bringing snacks and lots if water. The views are spectacular. If you can find a clear day to go you will take some magnificent photos. We probably walked aroubd 6km total. Word of warning. If you start from the South gate near Laozi it is a very long hike up many steps to get to the top. If you are not in good shape you can take thr bus.
It's very beautiful. I really like to climb mountains. I came to know thats there is a cave in the top of this mountain. I started climbing. I thought it will be near but it was too long. The sun was going down. So i thought to finish my task for next tour. I am really looking for a free time to go again.
