Following an earlier post advice, we took a local bus from Beibei to the Great Southwest University (bus station is about 15 mins walk from Metro and there is a KFC near it) and start our hike from there. Note - there are direct local bus from Beibei to Jinyun main entrance.

Despite asking several locals there, we couldn't find the route from the university to Jinyun apart from walking along a boring highway. So we had to take another bus from the university. We were lucky to find a great local guy at a bus stop who even took us mid way up. Sorry, but we did not record the bus number and where it stops. But it was not the main entrance. He took the route where locals take. We ended up at the Sunset peak and it took us about 1.5 hours with a beer break in between.

Camped a night up in the sunset peak. Path is very easy to do (again, maps are not very accurate) and we finished all 9 peaks by lunch the next day. Views are ok. We ended at the sunrise peak (near Shizi/Lions Peak) where there is an exit and local buses back to Beibei. Water is not very easily available due to lack of public toilets and streams. Watch out for mossies during summer. There are local vendors in key spots with food and drinks. Did not buy any so cannot comment on the price.

Well, it's not a wilderness, but it is a fun place to hike with many km of trails. On the more well used trails, there are resorts and restaurants. But you can also get a great lunch from the noodle guys who pack the entire cook kit and ingredients up the mountain each day. For a great experience, leave the well traveled paths and explore the "back country" trails that lead you through the peasants' farms. There are some excellent views, though almost never is the air clean enough to see very far. Major entrances to Jinyun Shan are within an easy walk of the great Southwest University in BeiBei.
