West Sea Grand Canyon Introduction

The Xihai, or West Sea, Scenic Area offers some of the most beautiful, most enthralling landscapes o­n Yellow Mountain. Covering some of Yellow Mountain's most prime scenery, including the West Sea Grand Canyon itself, the V-shaped West Sea Grand Canyon tour presents the visitor with some spectacular, if not breath-taking – sometimes quite literally, panoramas as well as views of a number of unique and bizzarely shaped rock formations with imaginative nicknames such as Upside-Down Boot, Lady Playing the Piano, Dog Watching the Sky, and Man Walking o­n Stilts. In addition, the visitor can behold several cloud-bathed peaks such as Archway Peak, Double Bamboo-Shoot Peak, Nine-Dragons Peak, Pine-Forest Peak, Stone-Bed Peak, and Stone-Pillar Peak.
The two entrances/ exits of the West Sea Grand Canyon tour are the Walking Fairyland Bridge in the south and the Cloud-Dispelling Pavilion in the north. These have elevations of 1320 m and 1430 m above sea level, respectively, while the canyon floor at Tianhai is at 600 m above sea level. Beginning at either of the two entrances, the visitor must cover a distance of about 9 km in all – a hike of about 4 hrs – in order to complete the "V" of the West Sea Grand Canyon tour. For example, a complete tour beginning at the Cloud-Dispelling Pavilion involves a 4 km hike to Walking Fairyland Bridge, where o­ne has a spectacular view of the canyon, and then o­n to the canyon floor itself at Tianhai (Haixin Pavilion), which corresponds, roughly, to the "bottom" point of the tour's "V".

West Sea Grand Canyon Features

As this involves a relatively sharp descent, the sourrounding cliffs and peaks appear to extend higher and higher. Majestically tall – and verdant, due to the ideal climatic conditions – pine trees are to be seen everywhere, some being so old that the local people have lovingly given them names. The scenery changes as o­ne proceeds along this route, which, in some places, is along a sheer drop, though protected by a barrier. From the bottom of the canyon floor o­ne proceeds back along the other leg of the "V" towards the exit at the White Cloud Area (alternatively, o­ne can take the reverse route).
The complete, entrance-to-exit West Sea Grand Canyon tour is a demanding hike that is decidedly not for the frail or faint of heart. For those who require a less-rigorous hike, an easier option would be to follow o­nly a portion of the route from either entrance, then return to that entrance point along the same route. Under all circumstances, the visitor should definitely follow a portion of the hike, as it will provide stunning imagery that will last a lifetime.
