It is 70 metres high and was one of the highest pagodas in China.The remaining two are about 100 years younger and shorter... More

This was a very nice trip. The were about 1300 steps to climb. This is not very easy for aged people. However they have a shuttle golf-car service which had very long ques. The pagodas are impressive.

This is the largest Han-style temple I had visited so far. It sits at the side of the mountain and you can see the beautiful er hai lake from top of the temple. The temple complex is huge and definitely tiring to cover all on feet, it is better to take the electrical carts to the top and walk your... More

This is like a must visit in Dali and rightfully so because its an attraction there. Its a good place to take a photo or 2 but other than that, it just like a normal pagoda and some nice monuments. Try get some photos outside if your driver care to find it.

These are quite new alto' there is a temple built in the 1300s at this site. If you are looking for old stuff I can't recommend anything in this area as it was leveled and rebuilt in the last 35 years per a sign in Chinese and English.

The 3 stone towers were beautiful, and they were the only real attractions to me at this so called historical site. All the rest in the surrounding were makeup and fake history -- as if Disneyland claiming their castle was once the home of a great king (not that they did).

The pagodas are very renovated so it's hard to believe they are as old as they say! When we were there the famous reflections were hard to see as the weather was cloudy and light was poor. Not as busy as many of the sights in Dali and Yunnan, but also not that exciting either!

The temple complex is right in the foothills of a massive mountain chain. It was really nice on a clear day and the mountains were holding back a wall of white clouds. There are about a dozen levels as you proceed upward but if you want, there are tourist trams that can take you halfway up or all the way... More

We managed to walk half way cuz was not informed about the shuttle available from main gate to top. But the sceneries are breathtaking. Even though we didn't go up but still a worth to visit. From the 3 pagodas to 3 temples we pass through its worth a walk. Make sure you wear hats and long sleeves if you... More

Very nice place... picturesque... with a temple on top .... If you believe in their religion, there are places to write your wishes/prayers. Vendors outside with local fruits, be careful as their prices vary.
