Access to Jianfengling

Admission tickets are RMB 40, but RMB20 if you are staying inside the reserve.


Much of the resort–style accommodation is at elevations 800-900m and aiming to provide a cooler climate than beachfront hotels.

We stayed at (and recommend) the Tian Chi Resort (Chinese)  contact person Mr Xue

13807528785 / 13637625351.

16Km from the reserve entrance the concrete road descends to a lake.  Turn left before the lake, the resort is 2.8 Km up the road.

Good quality forest can be easily explored from the Mingfenggou Boardwalk adjacent to Tianchi Resort.

The resort comprises several small blocks on a wooded hillside and birds around  in November 2009 included good numbers of Chinese Barbets and Eyebrowed Thrushes coming to a fruiting tree behind the resort’s kitchen.
