The popular paved trail stretches for some 15 km across Cangshang Mountain at an elevation of 3,000 meters give or take, with little or no elevation gain. Two cable cars provide convenient access, or you can ascend paved steps leading up to the path. Riding horses up is an option, though the animals themselves are not allowed on the trail.

We found ourselves straddled on the edge of an imposing cliff, the trail hugging the curvature of the mountain.

Across the gorge stood a small pagoda, and we decided that would make the perfect place to rest for lunch. — Alesha and Jarryd
