After entering the gate it is still about 24 kilometers to the climbing path. We took the car driven by local people, 8 yuan per person. The climbing path up the mountain is all well-built stairs. You can go to the peak summit or the Lingying platform, where you can see the sea of clouds at very early in the morning.
