The bed is very hard in the dorms. About 2 inches of padding. The hike to the Bright Summit in the morning takes about 45 minutes. From the eastern cable car (Cloud Valley) it is a 2 hour hike. Decent restaruant but again ve4ry expensive for china.

At the top, it wasn't far to the peak and it was real quiet up there, in between the mist and the pines. ...
We got to Hefei early in the morning, and some guy Alex met on the train offered to help us find our way to the bus station. However, Alex told him we were going somewhere that we weren't, so this guy brought us to the wrong station... thrice. The first one we ...
