Cangshan Mountain: Alpine Meadow and Hidden Waterfalls Hike - Camping (2 Days)

Cangshan Mountain: Alpine Meadow and Hidden Waterfalls Hike - Camping (2 Days)

A short but vigorous 3 to 4 hour hike up Cangshan Mountain, with roughly 600 metres of elevation gain and stunning natural scenery. Highlights of the trip include camping in a beautiful alpine meadow and visiting a series of spectacular, hidden waterfalls. After visiting the waterfalls, we set up our tents in the alpine meadow. The rest of the afternoon is spent relaxing in the beautiful meadow – talking, reading, taking photos and just enjoying the peace and tranquility of our natural surroundings. Our campsite is perfectly quiet at night and an excellent place from which to look up at the stars! This short hike and overnight camping trip allows you to conveniently immerse yourself in nature, while still being close to civilization. When your hiking and camping under the stars, you'll feel far, far away from the hustle and bustle of the world's most populous nation, despite actually only being a short distance from the nearest village!

Cangshan Mountain: Black Dragon Pools and Summit Hike (1 Day)

Cangshan Mountain: Black Dragon Pools and Summit Hike (1 Day)

This hike is only recommended for people who are thoroughly acclimatized and in excellent shape. We don't want to candy-coat it: this is a grueling hike with 2000 metres of elevation gain in a single day, but if you enjoy pushing yourself to the limits, then you'll love it! If you want to enjoy this hike without pushing your limits to the max though, we recommend doing it as a two day camping trip. For the camping trip, the hiking itinerary is the same but instead of hiking to the summit in one day, we camp at 3780 metres the first day, then continue up to the summit at 4030 metres the next morning. The main benefits of the camping trip are that you get to camp in a beautiful, high-altitude alpine meadow and rest for the night before continuing up to the summit the next morning. The other benefit is that you get to spend more time on the summit than you would if you did this hike in just one day. Another variation of the camping itinerary is to add the summit ridge traverse!

Cangshan Mountain: River Gorge Hike (1 Day)

Cangshan Mountain: River Gorge Hike (1 Day)

After hiking steadily uphill for about an hour through terraced fields and tea plantations, we come to the entrance of the gorge. We continue along a small trail that traverses the side of the gorge for another 30 minutes before finally coming to the river. We soon arrive at the first of many small but majestic waterfalls with crystal clear pools that are perfect for cooling off in during summer. After hiking beside the river past a series of waterfalls for about an hour, we come to the most spectacular part of the entire gorge, a narrow channel with high cliffs nicknamed the “Cathedral”. The walls of the cliffs are smooth, undulating and completely vertical, even overhanging. Much like a typical “slot canyon”, they were worn smooth over eons by rushing water, which gives them a very interesting appearance. This is the narrowest part of the entire gorge (only a few metres wide at its narrowest point), and the cliffs are at least 30 metres high, so the view is quite stunning.

Cangshan Mountain: Black Dragon Pools and Summit Hike - Camping (2 Days)

Cangshan Mountain: Black Dragon Pools and Summit Hike - Camping (2 Days)

A challenging but very rewarding high altitude hike that begins at the base of Cangshan Mountain at just over 2000 metres above sea level and takes you far up the mountain to a group of pristine alpine ponds located at 3780 metres (12,300 feet)! We camp right next to the ponds and enjoy an epic sunset before continuing up the mountain the next morning to the summit at an elevation of 4030 metres (13,450 feet)! This is a 15 km hike with a total elevation gain of approximately 1750 metres on the first day and 250 metres on the second day, so you need to be in strong physical condition. Serious hikers willing to challenge themselves will be rewarded with spectacular scenery, stunning views and a real sense of accomplishment!
