Very interesting tour - good shoes are recommended. We were the oldest in the international group and preferred the lift and skipped the ascent to Heaven Gate - with 50+ you don't have to do everything anymore - was no problem for the guide.

Great trip around a Marble Mountain. Would have appreciated more time there , which could have been done if we hadn’t stopped at a marble shopping centre on the way to this attraction.
