Guizhou – Fanjingshan (Fanjing Mountain) 贵州 梵净山

Location: Guizhou Province, Tongren City 贵州省 铜仁市

How to get there: less than 2 hours by car/bus from Tongren City, or a little more than 2 hours from Tongren Fenghuang Airport 铜仁凤凰机场.

Time of visit: mid-October 2019

Official website: in Chinese  and in English

Where to stay: the best hotel is Fanjingshan Qixi Resort Hotel 梵净山栖溪度假酒店 (see also Tripadvisor), just a 5-10 minutes walk from the entrance to Fanjing Mountain.

Time needed in the scenic area: one day.

It’s probably worth hiking up to the top, but the weather was rainy and very foggy during our visit, so we took the cable car instead.

Yamugou scenic area 亚木沟 is 30 minutes away by car/bus from Fanjingshan. We didn’t visit this area because the weather was too bad, so I’m not sure if it’s worth a visit or not.
