The park is very big, and if you follow the trail all the way back down the ground level it will take you the better part of a day. I explored many of the trails, especially the ones running underneath the gondola and while there isn't much particularly to see on the trail, it is clean and there are many... More

We caught the number 6 bus to West Hill and got off a stop early. We caught a minivan up to the South Gate (20 yuan) and walked down through Dragon Gate (I was imagining a single site not a whole string) and then down the whole mountain to the teples at the bottom. A lovely whole day adventure.

It will take half a day to climb to top and return to the city, but then you will get a great overview over the whole of Kunming.

We opt to take the bus to the main entrance as we did not have the energy to walk. We saw a few really cute figures welcoming us. It was made of rope. Then we took the chair lift up to the top of the mountain. The chair lift ride was awesome as we could see the view up close.... More

it's possible to see all three attractions in one day with time to spare using puvlic transport/foot. being able to speak Chinese helps a lot with figuring out public transport maps which are available from most hotels, you can also use the baidu.com map function which is very useful for figuring which bus line to catch. Take any bus which... More

We visited Stone Park while we were in Kunming and we found it a huge complex of pre historic place where millions years ago it was under the sea. The stone was formed as like a forest and we could walk between the stones. You could climb on the peak canopy and look around the amazing stone forest. We were... More

Nice view from the beauty peak and the dianchi lake from uphill is very beautiful but the path to dragon gate is very narrow and the temples there is not so much interesting , The metro station to the park is underconstruction. The transit to the park may be very comfortable in the future
