Location: Shanxi Province, Changzhi City, Huguan County
山西省 长治市 壶关县 太行山大峡谷

For more details and maps, see Taihangshan Mountain Grand Canyon main post

First a short shuttle bus ride from the entrance to a boat, then a 15 minutes long boat ride followed by a beautiful walk for half an hour, after that cable car up to the top. We followed a couple of very nice paths around the top area for 1-2 hours, after that we took the winding stairs down to the elevator and finally returned to the entrance.

One of the most beautiful parts was closed for maintenance, otherwise we would have spent an hour or two more here. The closed part seems to have re-opened now.

Time of visit: November 2016
