I only had time to go down one side of the canyon as my hotel was inconveniently situated. It is very, very steep as you descend but one feels as though one can almost touch the rock. The steps are not as smooth as the...More

Try to arrive early since huge tour groups make passing through this area very difficult. We arrived around 13:00 and it took hours to pass through walkways and stairs made for one or two people. When you add hikers from the other direction, the wait...More

This is a long loop that goes around the western portion of Yellow Mountain. It offers breaktaking scenery, and I highly recommend it. Plan about 3 hours to hike to the bottom, maybe more if it is crowded because the narrow path will have bottlenecks...More

Go in the morning so as to get the best view. Have to be prepared to do some climb. Some parts of the canyon is close due to landslide
