Climbed all way up to see the only pagoda on top, nothing much up there. Remember to bring drinking water if you happen to pass by here while visiting West Lake.

The tower sit a top a small mountain next to West Lake. Climb up the stone stairs to get to the tower, it's nice to walk up those stair, since the scenery is nice. The park around the tower is also nice, looking over both side of the mountain, to the city, and to the West Lake. There's also some... More

Baochu pagoda is quite nice. But best of all are the mountains around. After arriving Baochu pagoda, go to the western end of the plaza, pass under a rock and up some stairs on a narrow alley, then down a short flight of stairs and first stairs on the left, climb the mountain to the top (a short easy walk...

There are some nice views across the city and lake and the carved boulders are very interesting. It is not absolutely spectacular, but it is a pleasant place to visit. You need to... More
