1. Well, in the mountain, the accommodation is very limited. The best site to see the sunrise is the Guanritai in East Peak. There is a Dongfeng Hotel located on the peak, you’d better book it in advance.
2. This hikes take about 3 hours.
3. The fare for the recommended hotel is about CNY150-200 per night in common days and the price will climb up a lot during holidays.
4. You can take the north peak cable car up to the mountain in the afternoon, and then hike to the East Peak. Then check-into the hotel and see the sunrise in the next morning. Afterwards, hike to South Peak, and then to West Peak. Take the cable car down.
5.North Peak cable car: March 1 to November 30: CNY 80 (one way)
December 1 to end of next February: CNY 45 (one way)

West Peak Cable car:
March 1to November 30: CNY 140 (one way)
December 1 to end of next February: CNY 120 (one way)

BTW, it will be very cold at night in the mountain, and you are suggested to bring your heavy coat.
