After coming to the Ancient Town how can one resist climbing to the top of the hill for a view? It is not a difficult climb and can be done in a relaxed manner. The way from Wan Gu Lou to Wen Cang Gong is a nice traverse along the ridgeline. Visit is a must.

The town is clean, friendly hotel maid. Very beautiful natural scenery along the way from Lijiang to Shangri La.

The trail lead up to the Lion mountain and the Wan Gu Lou can be slippery after a rain, so make sure you have shoes with good traction when going up. My husband slipped some on the way down and almost broke the camera had he not being quick to catch it. The entrance fee to the park is 60... More

The hill provides a nice view of Lijiang Old Town and of the surrounding mountains but it is a climb to get up to it and if it is not clear weather do not go. So if you are not in shape it may be a bit too much.

A 15 minute uphill climb from Si Fang Jie with shops and inns along the way. A handful of coffee shops along the way also offer a nice Old Town view halfway from the top for those who are reluctant to go to the summit. There is a small temple inside the park and one can easily stroll for half... More

Took us about half an hour from no.188 hotel walk to the top of the Lion Rock. Very nice place to take a photo of the full Old Town view.

If you are in Lijiang this is a place to worth while to visit. Well there a quite some stairs to get to the Wan Gu Tower, but that is how you get up a hill/mountain in China. I think it is worth the effort. You see Lijiang old town to one side and Lijiang new town to the other... More

Left from the entrance square to the Old City of Lijiang there are stone stairs that lead up to Lion Hill. Apart from hostels, that offer a magnificent view of the rooftops below, there is a nice, recently built, pagoda. The main attractions here are the view of Lijiang and the surrounding hills, the beautifully painted ceilings where the color... More

Great for the nice view on the roofs of the old town. You also can see the new city. Be aware you will have to climb a lot of stairs.

The Lion Park (or Hill, probably the highest point of Lijiang Old Town and seemingly popular with romantic couples) is not an outstanding attraction but if you are in Lijiang Old Town, it is definitely worth a visit (a small fee irrespective). Wangu Tower that sits on the summit offers 360 degree panoramic views of the Old Town, New Town... More
