Shenxianju (Fairy Residence) 神仙居

Location: Zhejiang Province, Taizhou City, Xianju County, Baita Village
浙江省 台州市 仙居县 白塔镇

Official website: in English and Chinese

How to get there: 45 minutes by bus (see time table below) or taxi (100 yuan) from Xianju County 仙居县. Xianju is a 3 1/2 hours bus ride from Hangzhou 杭州, or 90 minutes from Taizhou 台州市.
Time needed in the scenic area: 1 day (we stayed for 7 hours).

Shenxianju has two entrances, the north and the south gate. Shuttle buses run between the gates and it takes 30 minutes.

There are two cable cars, one close to the north gate and one close to the south gate. We hiked up to the top from the north entrance and took the cable down to the south entrance.

The best hotel in the area is Shenxianju Holiday Resort 神仙居映象大酒店, very close to the north entrance. See Ctrip or Elong . It’s also possible to stay in Xianju County and take an early bus to Shenxianju.

Time of visit: April 2019
