Unlike other tea farms that tourists have to go through the dreaded sales pitch to purchase tea products, this tea terrace is actually one nice scenic destination at Wuyishan. After the shuttle ride inside the park, we walked along the tranquil and peaceful path with tea plants all around to the valley until we saw the Da Hong Pao trees half way up the hill. Quite interesting and relaxing.

Amazingly peaceful walk!
Nov 2019
This is something you don't frequently find in China - a place where you can take a walk on a well maintained, scenic mountain trail without competing with thousands of other visitors! The trail leads through many small tea plantations, along peaceful streams and past some very impressive mountain scenery. Lots of places for photos, and a few places where you almost feel alone. Very peaceful.

Make it worthwhile by hiking between Big Red Robe and Water Curtain Hole
Dec 2018 • Family
Many tour groups do the bus hop from Big Red Robe (not Rope!) and the Water Curtain Hole, but to make your trip worthwhile, you should hike the journey of 2.9km between those sites. The journey is uphill and downhill, but the scenic views along the way are well worth it. You will pass by valleys and tea trees, with great layered rocks along the hill side. It’s best to bring hiking poles for the journey to save your knees. It took me about 4 hours to do the journey at my own pace.

Amazing scenery
Nov 2017 • Solo
The scenery is amazing and there is lots to learn about the local tea industry if you go with a guide. A guide would also be able to help you avoid the crowds. I recommend Jenny at Wuyishan China International Travel Service.

Symbolic tree
Dec 2017 • Solo
This is a valley covered with tea plantations. From the entrance, it was a short walk to the destination, where the iconic trees are clearly marked out with the red Chinese wordings. These trees are at most symbolic, nothing spectacular. Most visitors and all tour groups will have photos taken and head for the exit (same as entrance).

If you loved hiking like me, I recommend hiking to Water Curtain Cave (水帘洞), with the sign indicating 2.9km. The hike took me about 2 hours, which I met only a few local tourists. Hike was relatively flat and easy path, with a few small streams and many tea plantations. I enjoyed the peaceful scenery, greens, and surrounding landscapes.

A short hike to see the source of pride for the whole area
Apr 2017 • Family
This is good introductory hike or a good ending one (as it was for us) since it is relatively short and easy (compared to the other trails we did). There are 2 ways to the get to the 6 "mother" trees and I recommend you do both to get the full experience.

At the destination, the 6 trees are very clearly marked out and you can then see the source of pride and revenue for the region. A must do, though please do not expect imposing trees....it is more of a symbolic visit than one for scenic reasons.

Absolutely gorgeous
Mar 2017 • Friends
I was completely over whelmed with the beauty of the walk!! It is a very serene, tranquil valley. The easy walk made it even more enjoyable. You can focus on the beauty of the area without struggling to climb steps. The tea trees are beautifully maintained in the lush valley with the 6 original tea trees your reward at the end of the valley. It is a must experience into the beauty of history and nature.

Pleasant walk to view most expensive tea bushes
Jun 2016 • Family
It was a pleasant and easy walk to the Da Hong Pao Scenic Area. The path takes you through a narrow valley with a flowing creek amidst sheer mountain cliffs and rock face. The three Da Hong Pao tea bushes which are the most expensive tea bushes in the world is on a rock face and have never been watered all these hundreds of years. There is a small tea house on-site where you can sit and marvel at the beauty and sanctity of the area. The walk back was also pleasant.

Probably Top 3 of our Trip !
May 2016 • Family
Dahongpao Scenic Area is actually a beautiful path in the middle of the valley covered with tea plantations. You will cross small rivers walking on stones, you'll meat Tea Plantations workers carrying their big bamboo baskets with the tea leaves they've taken. It's an easy path, not much climbing but absolutely beautiful landscapes. We did not cross many tourists on the almost 4 km path. It was very quiet and relaxing. You will hear about the most expensive oolong tea, which are actually few bunches of tea trees, which didn't look of much interest to us compared to the beautiful views all around. But I guess it should mean much more for those who really do like this kind of tea. Anyway Dahongpao are is definitely a must to walk in !
