Practical tips to Mt. Wudang

09-26-2010 14:40 BJT

Springs, summers and autumns are the best seasons to visit Wudang Shan. The mountain can be chilly near the top and be sure to have enough clothes for the nights.

You can stay on the mountain, but most prefer the convenience of staying closer to the town (called Laoying in the past), which is some 25kmfrom the main peak.

In early-April and early-October there are dragon boat races at Wudang Shan on the Han River. Every October, the weeklong Wudang International Tourism Festival takes place on the mountain with kung fu displays, photography exhibitions, and calligraphy and art exhibitions.

The Wudang Shan Scenic Area is quite large so most people spend a few days seeing the sights. A good itinerary is to spend one day checking out the sights at the foot of the mountain, then spend the night in one of the hotels surrounding the parking lot. On the second day, either hike or take the cable car up the mountain then spend the day exploring.
