Half-day trip

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

It is about 45 minutes by car from my hotel, which is Wyndham Grand Plaza Royale Colorful Yunnan Kunming. The taxi cost me 600 Yuan and the driver is Mr Lee. His mobile is 1868-7313-579 I had earlier took his sister's taxi. Good driver and being middle age, he has the experience and was prepared to bring us around, even... More

We got a taxi over the dam and the 94 bus goes back. Then we walk 50-100m up the highway to the side entrance. You'll see some street vendors there and people walking up. It's a favourite for the locals in the early morning. Very steep climbs will get your lungs going. The route has stairs - watch out some... More

Xishan does not only offer the casual Yunnan stone forest and magnificent scenery but also cultural heritage. You certainly would not want to miss the amazingly carved up temples along the mountain cliff. A gondola from Dian Chi (garden) can take you to the entrance to the park. Also there is a bus service by Xishan. Once inside you can... More
