Fun hike to this location

Hearing the people shouting as part of tai chi while hiking up the hill in the morning to get to this pagoda is a unique experience. Not too strenuous.

Climbing this mountain was a great experience. At the beginning I was scared because I went with my friend after a raining day so it was slippery and I was so afraid to fall. Hopefully everything went well.

Hiking up here was the best thing I did on my daytrip to Hangzhou. Good exercise; wonderful views of the lake and the city; allows you to escape the tourist hordes but still be around plenty of Chinese (mostly friendly but bemused to see me, a Westerner).

Instead of following the stairs up the hill, we turned left and followed a footpath through the woods (we think it was for maintenance workers). We wandered through the woods for 30 minutes, and came out the other side of the Pagoda. We climbed the rocks and felt like explorers. We had a wonderful time!

On a clear day BaoChu Pagoda provides an excellent vantage point for some excellent views over West Lake and the City of Hangzhou. The advantage is that it is far from the bustling crowds - since most wont make the effort to climb up here. The interesting part is exploring the rest of the elevated area close to the Pagoda....

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...
