I cheated and took the tram to the top then walked down. Absolutely the best! Quiet, peaceful, and lots of clean air. The scenery is breath-taking. The rock carving is stunning.

A trip via cable car to the top of mountain before explore the passage to the temples. Dragon Gate is the passage to the exciting ancient temples. One must be fit to explore the passage. Easy to understand since there are signboards in English. Can reach this place by foot about 40 mins journey.

Wow, perhaps the name of Dragon Gate came from all the Kung Fu Masters who capable of leaping many thousand feet and met up for the final Kung Fu competitions where no other simple ordinary men can even dared of dreaming of reaching to its heights without proper safety helmets and gears for modern OSHA concerns. And yet, the winding,... More

We walked from the Interconti hotel to the board walk along the lake. We walked the length of the lake walk and crossed the street to the ticket booth. Gondola goes over a pretty gross part of the water very slowly and then up into the mountains. It is a slow ride compared to other gondolas. Once up at the... More
