New buildings, but nice, especially against the blue sky. The more you go up, the more quiet. Very commercial place however. Reminds me of Jesus kicking out the money exchangers and other shops out of the temple in Jerusalem. He would be very busy in these temples and there are quite a few of them on that mountain.

The parkland area inside is nice, and the three pagodas are good. Make sure you go in the correct gate near the markets. It's a good morning adventure.

Dali is renowned for these 3 pagodas. If you visit Dali and did not visit these 3 pagodas, you have not visited Dali. The main entrance to Chongsheng Three Pagodas is about half an hour walk from the Old Dali City. You have to head for the Cangshan gate (Shan Yue Street) and walked all the way to your right...

This is a large park that is more than just the three Pagodas. It is a stair case layout from the side of the mountain down to the three pagodas. I would recommend taking the shuttle up to the top and work you way back down. If you choose to really get the details and go into every temple, you... More

The Three Pagoda are beautiful, especially if you go in the morning when they are illuminated by the morning sun. I walked almost to the highest area and visited several temples along the way, then walked back down. If you have difficulty walking or climbing many stairs you may want to take the little shuttle to the top and just... More

The good: huge temple complex, with an older part (south) and a newly rebuild one (north); beautiful views over the lake and mountain rage; a must visit for Buddhists enthusiasts; The bad: huge temple complex; over crowded with huge tour groups during holidays and weekends; overpriced electric-car (25 rmb)

The fee for going inside is around 120rmb, for me is quiet expensive, but if you have the student card then you only have to pay half the price and that will be more affordable. I didnt go inside because of the high price but i did stay outside, they have amazing view to the Erhai lake and the landscape... More

Agree with the previous review, get the golf cart to the top, some fascinating temples to view, great views down across the whole area, then walk down to appreciate the temples and the pagodas. Just 20 minute walk from old town, or 20 rmb taxi ride. Need about 1-2 hours to see and appreciate it all.

Very close to the old town, the pagodas are part of a larger compound of temples and gardens, my suggestion to you is to take the golf car to the top and come back walking. the walk back takes around 1 hour with plenty of time to explore the temples and photos around. the best spot to take the pictures...

This attraction about ½ mile from the old town is a bit of a misnomer as you can see the pagodas in 15 minutes or so. Far more interesting are the gardens and the various Buddhist monastery temples that stretch from the top of the hill to the pagodas towards the bottom. Unless you are really fit or have lots...
