It's a private photo tour. You are the only leading role.

What's the accommodation situation?

All hostels on mountains were closed since June, 2019. All tourists can stay at hotels in the footer of mountains now. There are many hotels including Pullman.

However, can't shoot sunrises and sunsets any more since then. The cable up down the mountains opens at around 7am and closes at 6pm.

How can I customize this itinerary?

Telling us your requirements, such as adding one more day or making it shorter, or focus on landscapes more. We can easily design a new itinerary by your interests.

What gears should I bring?

Two cameras will be very helpful, it will save your time to change the lenses. Better to have one full frame body with regular lens, and one half frame for zoom lens.

For sunrise, 24-70 and 70-200 are needed; at sunset, 70-200 is more useful.

Besides, if would be great if you have a primary lens with big aperture (1.4 or 1.8) for low light indoor photography.

Tripod is very necessary of course. We prepare at least 2 tripods for backup, you can bring your ball head only and use it on our tripod if concerning about the weight of your luggages.
