You need to keep suitable speed for your hiking to avoid muscle strain. When you rest, you could do some massage to prevent muscle stiffness.

You’d better stop climbing when you want to enjoy the scenery.


Mount Tai Scenic Spot belongs to mountainous area so that suitable sports wears are needed.
The temperature at the top of the mountain is 5 degrees lower than the temperature at the foot of the mountain. There is not much difference during the day. You would feel a little cold at night when you at the top of the mountain. If you choose to climb the mountain at night, you'd better take a thick coat.

However, there are army coats for rent at the top of the mountain. You can rent one after you arrive at Nantianmen. If you rent it too early, it may become a burden when you climb the mountain.

In order to avoid catching a cold, you’ better not sit on wet ground or take off your coat if you are sweating.


Mount Tai Scenic Area so quite large, and there are lots of unexploited places. So, no matter driving or walking, you had better not choose shortcuts to avoid getting lost. If you have night climbing plans, please remember to take flashlights with you. In summer, if it is good weather, night mountain climbing here could be good an experience.

Please keep your ticket well because there are places that you would meet staffs checking tickets.

You could not see the sunrise on the top of Mount Tai every day because sunrise is impacted by the weather. If there are clouds on the eastern horizon, there would not have sunrise. If it blows northwest wind first night, it is easier to appear sunrise next day because clouds would be blowing to the sea. Thus, if you want to appreciate sunrise on the Mount Tai, it’s better for you to keep an eye on the weather and check the sunrise schedule.

If you take a driving tour here, you could drive to Tianwaicun or Taohuagu (Peach Blossom Valley) and transfer to tourist buses up to Mount Tai because private cars are not allowed to reach the mountain.

For the safety of tourists, tent camping is not allowed on the mountain top. Visitors could find hotels of all levels here.
