When you head to the remote Jiangxi Province you are overwhelmed by the amount of things to do. In my time in Jiangxi I managed to tour 4-5 remote villages in the countryside including Little Likeng and Wangkou (more to come in future on them), plus the thrill of manic Nanchang and then there are the gems…Jingdezhen China City and the spectacular Sanqing Shan mountains.
Getting to Sanqing Shan
You will arrive by bus – it’s realistically the only way for foreign travellers to get there. Buses run from Likeng, Shangrao, Quzhou and many other nearby towns and cities in Jiangxi Province. Buses are cheap and frequent during day time hours. It’s not recommended to visit at night, the national park closes down.
Arrival at Sanqing Shan
On arrival we pay our entrance fee to the National Park which is a whopping 180 RMB.
Then we get a cable car up to the top for our first bit of hiking. The Cable Car ride is one of the longest in the world and it takes 20-25 minutes to get to the top. The views are simply breathtaking!
Hiking Around Sanqing Shan
We spent 2 days hiking and walking all the tracks near the top and it was amazing. The tourists there are almost all Chinese so if you are foreign you will love it.
The most famous part is the Stone Lady/Goddess, and there is also a rock face which resembles a man laying back, to the detail where you can even see a nose a willy on the sculpture.
Sleeping in Sanqing Shan
Some people camp out here in Summer months. We were there in June and July and we stayed in a small hut which is like a hostel up in the mountains. It has no name but ask around and you’ll find it.
