Best time to shoot the China Rainbow Mountain

  • The best time to shoot is afternoon, that's when the colours display the most layers
  • The best spot for sunrise and sunset is Viewpoint #4, but is very very crowed! Sunset is better than Sunrise here
  • The best spot for getting the panoramic view is Viewpoint #2 as it's the highest viewpoint, you need to climb up for about 20-30min. Same here, sunset has better lighting than sunrise
  • Sunset time: 7:30 pm in spring and autumn ; 8:00 pm in summer
  • The best month is June to September: very sunny but not too hot, the colours are brighter
