Best Time to Go

  • March and April is the right time of the 'sea of flowers' in the countryside around it and Tachuan Village that is next to it.
  • Early November is the right time for vivid autumn scenery around it and Tachuan.

The countryside around Hongcun is remarkable and worth a walk and a visit any time of the year. There is a noted bamboo grove within walking distance.

But in the spring, you can see the village nestled in yellow rape field flowers, and in the fall, the village is highlighted by the red leaves on the trees.

Tachuan is a small village only 2 km or 1 mile away noted for even better autumn scenery. People can take a 30 minute sightseeing stroll to it in the peasant countryside. Tachuan is famed for the beautiful colors in the countryside in late October and early November. See Nearby Attractions below.



 


For an energetic hiker in good shape: Descend the cable car, walk for about 40 minutes to arrive at the hotel, and see Harp Pine, Beginning-to-Believe Peak and Black Tiger Pine along the way. After buffet lunch at the hotel, explore the West Sea Grand Canyon. The whole hiking trip lasts for over three hours, covering the 1st ring, 2nd ring, and bottom of the canyon. If time and strength permit, you can further explore the Flying-over Rock and watch the sunset at Bright Top. It takes about 40 minutes to get from Bright Top back to the hotel.

For beginners, children, and senior citizens: Get off the cable car, walk for about 30 minutes to the hotel, and see Black Tiger Pine and Dream Flower Pine on the way. After buffet lunch at the hotel, walk to West Sea Grand Canyon. You can decide how long you would like to walk for: reaching the 1st ring and returning takes about two hours; reaching the 2nd ring and returning takes about 2½ hours. Then enjoy the sunset at Cloud-dispelling Pavilion. It takes about 30 minutes to get back to the hotel.

Short Cut. Trekking in the West Sea Grand Canyon can be a big challenge, especially to your knees. A monorail is available to help you save time and strength.
