We are Germans – my wife, my son and me. We did that trip last month (end of September/beginning of October), but had we had made a change: Instead of Wutai mountain we wanted to have two more days in Inner Mongolia for Singing Sand Ravine and Genghis Khan Mausoleum. That was the right combination I would say more..
