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

Though the 1st cable car couldn't be taken to take the big bus , there will be free car sending people to take it .You can visit the temple at the middle of the mountain (半山腰) ,there are altogether 3 殿 (parts). There will be a spot up in the mountain where there is a guy who will take your... 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

Any online image search on "Yunnan" will be full of photos of the limestone pinnacles of this region, but make it seem inaccessible. This park covers a small portion of the region and makes it accessible with trails and stairs. It is some distance from Kunming, an hour plus by bus each way - and the bus station is already...

Unless you are going to Long Men or the temples, the forest itself is just a quiet place to walk. It was a fine walk, but that's it.

As a city, there's not much to see or do. In addition, there's a lot of construction going on so there's constant noise and the air quality is not great. That being said, Xishan Forest, Haigeng Park and the trip up to the Dragon Gate is worth a visit, providing a good view of the city as well as providing... More

The view up there was priceless, able to view the famous dian chi and long men. The cable car and ropeway-leg ride were nice, you may enjoy the view while they carry you to the top of Xi Shan. I climbed all the way down just to have a taste of walking the steps, it was tiring but you get... More
