The Laojun Mountain via ferrata route is one of the most popular routes in China. It stretches over 800 meters and is a mix of rock climbing and hiking. The entire route takes around six to eight hours to complete, depending on your skill level and physical fitness. Along the way, climbers can expect to traverse a variety of terrain including steep slopes, narrow passages, ladders, and even sections of natural rock wall. This makes it an ideal route for experienced climbers looking for something a bit more challenging than the usual hike.

During your ascent, you will be surrounded by lush mountain forests filled with vibrant greenery and wildflowers as you make your way up the mountain path. If you’re lucky enough to ascend during sunrise or sunset, you’ll be treated to spectacular hues of pink, orange, purple, and yellow painted across the sky. Also keep an eye out for rare wildlife such as golden snub-nosed monkeys and black bears that inhabit this area.

While the route is considered moderate in difficulty, it’s important to be aware of some safety precautions before attempting the climb. As with any climbing excursion, before embarking on your journey up the mountain climbers should wear appropriate footwear (sturdy shoes with good grip) as well as long pants and sleeves for protection against scrapes or falls. It’s also important to have an experienced guide who can provide tips and advice throughout the climb — especially when approaching more difficult sections of the route.
