Yaoshan is not a big mountain but it is the biggest locally. There is cable car to the top, although there is a (very) rough trail up and down for the brave or foolhardy. There may be other routes up and down but I forgot...More

It's not covered cable car but an open chair lift. Only a metal bar to prevent you from slipping off your seat. The time we went, it was raining awhile ago so the chairlift shelter had rusty water dripping onto my head and pants non-stop....More

Unfortunately, the weather wasn't too great on the time we went and the fog covered some of the views. Make sure you go on a clear day!

Visited Yaoshan Mountain in December and the weather was foggy and rain drizzled all the time, that's why the track going down was closed, used just cable car for both ways. I didn't have enough time, use the tourist center in my hotel to go...More

Thank you for your review IamNotDr on Yaoshan! May I know if I could hire a taxi up there early in the morning for sunrise photography? Where's the best spot to take photos once you get up there - you'd mentioned a vantage point. Is this place good for sunset too? Many thanks for your advice.

I got up there by the chair lift, I guess no other motorized way to go up. I have seen peopel walking up there,its save and you dont have to go all the way up to make pictures for sunrise pictures.
