“Nice view”

the temple itself is nothing special, but from here you get a great view of west lake and it is a nice hike along the trail from there around to near to Huanglong or further

“Quiet spot with a good view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012

The pagoda itself looks more impressive from a distance than up close, but the hill it stands on (gem or precious stone hill) is lovely and tranquil. 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 be motivated to climb as it is 330 steps up to the top; so be prepared for a hike. If you really are feeling parched after ascending, there is a bar near the top.

“Average brick pagoda with great views over West Lake.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2011

I passed by Baochu pagoda during my hike on the northern shore of West Lake and it was one of the highlights of my trip. As West Lake itself can be quite crowded (see separate review), a visit here can be a welcome respite from the commotion down below. There is a well-worn, logical path called Xixialang that is found to the west of Yue Fei Temple; it is about a 20-30 minute walk to Baochu pagoda from here. Overall worth a visit not so much for the pagoda but more the journey to get there: unique photo opportunities abound. Thumbs up.
