I would like to record my Yuntai Mountain two days Road Trip.  If you drive here, choose the destination as Anshang service area on map which is more convenient than other places. We arrived in the service area around 5 p.m. The service area is also a village which own many accommodations, the price is around 100 yuan. The condition of homestay is acceptable, however remember to bring toothbrushes. Along the street, there are night markets which you could buy some snacks in the street. Do not necessary to bring too much food as the price is acceptable.  Tickets are sold from 6 am, price of which is 210 yuan per person (you could go to each scenic spot in two days, and take every bus through all the scenic spots). Beside the service area, there is a yard which you could buy ticket and take bus. Even if you do not take cash, you could use the credit card or debit card. After you press your fingerprints, you can get on the bus. Each bus has a free guide who will remind you to get off. If you could get up early, just get up early, because the first place we need to go, Red Stone Gorge, is always crowded. In addition, the road to Red Stone Gorge is quite narrow. Even though there are some shortcomings, the scenery here is magnificent. The next stop is Zifang Lake, even it called lake, actually is a 60 meters deep dam. On the top of dam, there are some vendors to sell local goods. In the dam, you could spend 30 yuan to take yacht to enjoy the scenery of dam.  Then we left the scenic spot and took a bus to Xiaozhai Ditch (Quanpu Gorge, Rhesus Monkey Valley, Tanpu Gorge), we were asked to get off at the bus stop and check your ticket at the gate of the scenic spot. We went to Rhesus Monkey Valley firstly; monkeys are running all the way. Then, we walked to Tanpu Gorge where are few people here. The water is quite clear, you could see the swimming fish. We have walked around 2 kilometers, then arrived at the end of Tanpu Gorge. The next desination is Tanpu Gorge, which is 3 kilometers away. If you would like to take bus, it costs 5 yuan. If you would like to save money, you could walk 3 kilometers to the Tanpu Gorge. The disappointed things is when we arrived there, the waterfall had no water as it was dry season. So, we took the bus back to the service area, luckily, we did not need to pay this time.  If you have two more hours, you can go to the Wanshan Temple from Anshang Service Area, shore service area which costs 10 minutes. Get off to check tickets, and worshiped Buddha, then went back to the hotel. Next day, we went to Zhuyu Peak, enjoy the ride in the bus through the Diecai Cave, bus drivers were faster than they should in the narrow mountain road and they would make your pants get wet. There is an option for a beautiful hike if you choose a path named Phoenix ridge of approx 4km till the starting point. The way is very easy and plain and the views from that place are absolutely breathtaking. To sum up, the Management of the YunTai Mountain is well organized and clean (heavy work done by hundreds of staff all around). After five years in China I can say this is one of the best places I have been.
Yuntai Mountain Geopark is located in Jiaozuo City, Henan Province. The mountains are full of dolostones, so it is place for scientists doing research for geography. With high forest coverage and different landforms, Yuntai Mountain is an ideal place to hike. I would like to record my two days tour: First Day, I took a bus to Quanpu Gorge, Tanpu Gorge and Rhesus Monkey Valley in the morning. In the afternoon, I went to Hongshi Gorge and Zifang Lake by bus. On the way, I also went to Wanshou Temple (a small temple). Second Day, in the morning, I took a bus to Zhuyu Peak, passed through the Diecai Cave (no stop), which was one of 14 caves that people dug in order turn around in the mountain. Zhuyu Peak is 1297.6 meters above sea level, with beautiful scenery, but the small path with steps in the mountain makes it too difficult to hike. Compare to Zhuyu Peak, the road in Phoenix Ridge scenic spot is relatively flat. In the afternoon, I took a bus to Baijia Cliff to get out of the scenic spot or Anshang service area. To sum up, Yuntai Mountain scenic spot is one of the best scenic spots I have ever seen. There's a chance to go back!! [Tips] There are a few villages set up for tourists to buy souvenirs and food. If you’re tight on time like we were, you can find food options at the entrance to Tanpu Gorge. Food isn’t the greatest but you can have your pick of buffet, family run restaurants, and a fast food restaurant Dicos.
Yuntai Mountain is really the best 5A scenic spot I have ever visited. The service here is very good. There are many shuttles between different scenic spots. The driver's service attitude is also good. The scenic spot is very clean. Cleaners can be seen everywhere. The toilets in the mountains are also clean and hot water. This must be praised. The most important thing is that the scenery is good. The Hongshi Gorge is the essence, the canyon is not long, the scenery is very beautiful, and the Yuntai Spring Waterfall Gorge is beautiful. Tian Waterfall is spectacular!
Almost indisputable natural scenery of Henan NO.1. There are no major drawbacks except that tickets are expensive. Red Stone Gorge is always crowded, but the scenery after the crowding makes people feel worthwhile. The water scenery of Quanpu Gorge and Tanpu Gorge is one of the best in Henan Province, but the Tianpu in Yuntai is very rare and can only be seen by fate. Dogwood Peak is not difficult to climb. Don't expect too much from the glass trestle. There is only a short period for the time being. Monkey Valley and Wanshan Temple can not go if time is not enough. As long as Red Stone Gorge, Spring Waterfall Gorge, Tan Waterfall Gorge and Cornus Peak are played all over, it is enough.
Years ago, I had been admiring the beautiful scenery of Yuntai Mountain. On the eve of National Day this year, I avoided the peak traffic and finally made a trip. I booked train tickets, tickets and hotels online, and started a walk-by-walk. Before that, I compared where to go, the same trip, the honeycomb self-service tour, the delegation and so on. The cost-effective ratio of admission and accommodation of Ctrip is the highest. Here, I give Ctrip a compliment. In the future, more high-quality and low-cost tourism products can be introduced to the public. This trip has been arranged for three days. The first day is Xiaozhaigou in the morning, Hongshi Gorge in the afternoon, Zhuyufeng in the second day, Wanshan Temple and Qinglong Gorge in the third day. After the rainy season in late September, the water volume of Zhongtan Waterfall in the canyon is much less. But when you look at the steep mountains, the vegetation in the mountains is very beautiful, especially the stone walls of Hongshi Gorge can be comparable to the Tianshan Grand Canyon in Xinjiang. Shi Qiquan has good sanitation, reasonable commodity prices in the service area, steep staircases on Douyu Peak, middle-aged and old people recommend carrying walking sticks, more than 3000 steps in Qinglong Gorge are a test of physical strength, I personally take the cableway all the way to and fro. If I see the colorful vegetation on the mountain after National Day, the forest is dyed, if I see the water, I suggest to come back in July and August, but summer passenger flow will be much larger. Anyway, Yuntai Mountain is worth visiting. It's worth visiting.
Now this season is a good time to play. The flowers and plants that we went to the girls'dormitory during the Festival have not yet bloomed, and some of them lack vitality and color. April should be the best time. There are trees and water. It's already good. Many scenic spots, two days in a hurry can travel through the entire scenic area.
Many scenic spots are very beautiful, free bus transport is very convenient, Red Stone Gorge - very beautiful and most worthwhile, ranked first, tour time is 3-4 hours, but also the most people, it is suggested that later in the afternoon to avoid the peak pool waterfall Gorge, Spring Waterfall Gorge (Yuntai Tian Waterfall, the highest waterfall in China is a seasonal waterfall, only seen in the rainy season) and macaque Valley (there is no wilderness). Raw monkeys, there is a fixed time performance to play monkeys. There are mountains and rivers in Tanpu Gorge. It is also a place where most tourists gather together. There are relatively few people in Quanpu Gorge. The touring time is 5-6 hours. Dogwood Peak is famous for a poem. The hills are not very high. It is a step to climb the top in an hour. The scenery on the top is not bad. The newly built temple is really nothing to look at. There is no time to neglect that the four scenic spots correspond to four service areas. The software and hardware facilities in the service area are very perfect, and the price is not too expensive. It is recommended to live and eat in the shore service area. It's a little far away from each other. The scenic spot is very large. It's estimated that the time of two days is just a short stroll. We have no time to go to Baijiayan scenic spot this time for one and a half days. Try to go as usual as possible. This time we went on Saturdays and felt like a lot of people (mostly tour groups), let alone holidays.
On the first morning, I took a bus to Quanpu Gorge, Tanpu Gorge and Rhesus Monkey Valley. This is a scenic spot. I checked in once. In the afternoon, I will return to Hongshi Gorge by bus, because it is a one-way road and does not go back, so Hongshi Gorge goes into Ovary Lake and goes out. By the way, I will visit Ovary Lake. I can also go to Wanshou Temple (a very small temple) as soon as I come back. The next morning, I took a bus to Zhuyufeng (pronunciation Zhu Yu feng) and passed through the folded cave (without stopping), which was 14 caves dug 180 degrees in order to go up and down the mountain. There are 1297.6 meters above sea level, beautiful scenery, but many stairs are very tired (it is said that there are more than 2000 stairs) there are Phoenix Ridge scenic spot, the road is relatively flat. In the afternoon, you can take a bus to Baijiaya to get out of Dar or on shore to the service area. That's how my schedule is arranged. To sum up, Yuntai Mountain scenic spot is one of the best managed scenic spots I have ever seen. 1. There is no shortage of hand sanitizer in every bathroom. 2. There is air conditioning in every bathroom, and the semi-air conditioning is on. 3. The scenic spot is very clean and there is a cleaner just a short distance away. A cleaner picks up papers the size of a pin and sweeps leaves at any time. There's a chance to go back!!
Jiaozuo Yuntai Mountain, located in Xiuwu County, Jiaozuo City, Henan Province, is 80 kilometers away from Zhengzhou Airport. It is a new Jin World Geopark and a national 5A tourist attraction. The scenic area covers an area of 280 square kilometers. The scenic area is a combination of beauty, seclusion, heroism and danger. Springs, waterfalls, streams and pools have their own characteristics. There are Hongshi Gorge, Tan Waterfall Gorge, QuanWaterfall Gorge, Qinglong Gorge, Fenglin Gorge, Ofang Lake, Zhuyufeng, Rhesus Monkey Valley, Caidong, Baijiayan and other major scenic spots. Generally, 2-3 days is a good time to play. Because there are many scenic spots and the distribution area is large, I think we can choose Hongshi Gorge, Zhuyufeng and Caicave as the first day and visit Tanpu Gorge or Quanpu Gorge the next day, so that the best scenic spots can be visited and the wrong road can be avoided. The joint ticket in the scenic spot is 210 yuan, including tickets for each scenic spot and bus tickets. It should be noted that when checking tickets at the entrance of the scenic spot, you need to brush your face. You must not buy tickets from improper channels for a small price.
I have never been to Jiuzhaigou. My friends strongly recommend that I have been to Jiuzhaigou. But the mountains and rivers here are different from Jiuzhaigou. There are quiet green water and jumping waterfalls. Three steps and one spring, five steps and one waterfall, ten steps and one pool are really well-known. The three-day ticket system is enough for you to slow down and enjoy the beautiful scenery here. As a 5A scenic spot, the service is very intimate. There are buses to pick up and deliver the scenic spots among the scenic spots, and the consumption of the service area is also very affordable.
