Phoenix Mountain National Park



How to get there:

Buses leave from Dandong to the town of Fengcheng, just outside the park, every few minutes throughout the day.

About 50 kilometers out of Dandong, Phoenix Mountain (Fenhuang Shan) is, according to the Dandong local government, one of the top for scenic areas in Liaoning Province. Even if you're disposed to take their word with a grain of salt, Phoenix Mountain won't disappoint.

The area, 216 square kilometers, is large and there's plenty to see. There are Taoist temples, inscribed stone tablets, dramatic landscapes, ancient towers, zipline rides and caves to explore. Hikes to the peak can take a while and be quite challenging, but there's a cable car if you'd like to forego the climb.
