My son is going to climb the mountain and wants to see the Sunrise. 1. Can he make a reservation at a hotel on the mountain? I cannot find a way...Or must he just go there and hoe for the best? And 2. On the day after, once he has seen the sunrise, he wants to come back down to the train station where the fast G trains are going back to Beijing. How long will it take him to get down and to the train station, and what is the best way to do that? G672 leaves at 9:48 am, and G660 leaves at 11:35 - can he make either of those?
What is the best time to visit? Obviously avoiding any holiday spikes or too much fog that would inhibit the hike. Doesn't have to be peak times but I'd also like to get the full experience (including the plank walk!!)
