I came from Singapore. Wu Lao Mountain is more or less equivalent in height to our Bukit Timah Hill. Bukit Timah Hill is about 164 m tall while the height of Wu Lao Mountain is about 184 m. I would think this Wu Lao Feng should be a hill and not a mountain. But the terrain of this `mountain' is more complex with more winding narrow steps and boulders and require more energy to climb while the road up Bukit Timah Road is more straight forward and wide. In terms of panoramic view, I think this Wu Lao mountain surpassed Bukit Timah Hill. The Wu Lao Peak is only open until 6 pm. It is free admission. The bodily ashes of some of the temple abbots who passed away and cremated were buried beneath the pagoda towers located along the way up. The atmosphere would appear eerie at night. I came at a time during the Golden Week. The Nanputuo Temple was flooded with swarm of visitors. The route up probably took about an hour but the movement of the crowd seriously impeded the speed up. It took me almost 2 hr to find myself at the summit of the mountain. The price of the drinks up at the summit is also expensive. A bottle of drinks would cost RMB 8. The high cost include donation to the temple. If you are concerned of the hefty price, please fill up your water bottle before starting the climb. From the summit, there is a route into the Botanical Garden. But I was in a rush to visit other attractions and give the Botanical Garden a miss. After coming down from Wu Lao mountain, I found a sense of relief. Due to the crowd and the heat of the weather, I was sweating profusely but it gives a good work out for the day. You will be able to see the Wu Lao Peak behind the Nanputuo Temple if you observe it from the road outside the Lotus Pond of the Temple. It is picturesque. One lesson to learn is to avoid the Golden Week. If you come in October may be come after 8 Oct, the madding crowd would be much reduced.

Near the entrance to the Botanical Gardens (closest metro is Zhongshan Park - but it is still quite the hike up the hill to the entrance) there is a chairlift and for 50RMB (or 80RMB) you can take a chairlift up and over and back again. It offers amazing views of the city on both sides of the mountain and if you want you can get down at the top and hike down. Go on a warm day, the winds can be chilly in the winter!

This is a great little mountain to climb as its only about 45 minutes to the peak where you'll have terrific view of Xiamen. There are loads of other people hiking up as well so it's not exactly a romantic type of hike, but nevertheless you'll be rewarded with a good view. To get there, one must first go into the Nanputuo Temple as the climb starts from the rear of the temple. It's free to enter both the temple and the hike. The temple is also right next to the famous Xiamen University.

Just a few walk in the city, you can reach the site. There are many canons around and you can even tough them by hands. The garden also provide a good view to the harbor and next to a wonderful beach where you can take a swim under the sunny sky. It is worth to spend a afternoon there and nearby. .
