Cloud Valley Temple Cable Car Station (Yúngǔsì suǒdào)

Cloud Valley Temple Cable Car Station (Yúngǔsì suǒdào) Review

The Eastern Steps begin at the Cloud Valley Temple Cable Car Station. The cable car takes eight minutes to traverse what takes hikers three or more hours. Large windows provide an aerial view of the mountain and bamboo forests below. This area was once home to several monasteries, nunneries, and temples. By the beginning of the 20th century they had been abandoned, but the name Cloud Valley Temple Area remains.
