We took the cable car up expecting to see the hammer rock from close. However once on top they ask 50yuans more to access to the rock + Pule Temple and the walk back in. You can't see the rock once you're up, it's hidden...More

We took the chairlift to the top and wondered around the rock. As there was not many people it was very enjoyable with a nice view over chengde and the temple below

Visited the Qingchuifeng (Sledge Hammer Peak). It was really nice and the cable ride up was really scenic esp in spring when flowers are in bloom. The scenic area is well maintained and the hike up to the Sledge Hammer Peak ("SHP")is quite steep. Best...More
