Yandangshan (Yandang Mountain) 雁荡山

Location: Zhejiang Province, Wenzhou City, Leqing City 浙江省 温州市 乐清市

Official website: in English and Chinese

How to get there: By train to Yandangshan Railway Station 雁荡山站. 2 1/2 hours from Hangzhou, 3 1/2 – 4 hours from Shanghai.

We stayed in Yandangshan Villas (Mountain Resort) 雁荡山山庄, close to Yandang village, 10 minutes by car from the railway station. It’s a couple of kilometers from the hotel to the scenic area Lingfeng 灵峰.

Time of visit: April 2019

Time needed in the scenic areas: A full day for the 5 main areas, 2 days for all areas.

The scenic areas are several kilometers away from each other, and during peak season and holidays there are shuttle buses running between the areas. But not when we visited in April, so we hired a driver and car for 280 yuan for a full day (including transfer to and from the hotel and railway station).

We visited these 5 scenic areas (click on the links to see separate posts about each area):
Lingfeng 灵峰
Dalongqiu 大龙湫
Lingyan 灵岩
Fangdong (Jingtianhu) 方洞 (景天湖)
Jingminggu Valley 净名谷

There are also two remote areas we didn’t visit:
Yanhu 雁湖
Yangjiaodong (Goat Horn Cave) 羊角洞

Around one hour by car from Yandangshan is Nanxijiang (Nanxi River) Scenic Area 楠溪江景区, a Unesco World Heritage Site with several beautiful mountains. See separate post here.
