  1. Beautiful photos with the fog! This trail actually reminds me of some I’ve seen in Japan. I’ve never done the camping thing, just day hikes, but it looks like a lot of fun!

  3. I don’t know if you’ve seen it, but a wrote a whole series of blog posts about Beidawushan:

    And yes, you did miss the best part, but this isn’t the right time of year to go to the summit if you want to see the 雲海 (cloud-sea). For that, it’s best to go in autumn (notice that Martin Rubli, who you linked to, also went in autumn, which is why he was able to get those kinds of photos).

    If you have such a good tent and the stamina to do the hike in two days (and if you ever do try it in two days, I highly recommend staying overnight at a minsu the night before – you’ll get a bit of acclimitization, and the minsu owners will probably drop you off at the trailhead and pick you up at no charge) I suggest camping overnight at the Shinto shrine. It’ll be tough, but you might get to see a sunset and a sunrise. Alternatively, if you have 2 1/2 days, you could just camp out at the old trailhead, and camp at the Shinto shrine the second night.
