We walked up and down, it is short walk although plenty of steps. There are plenty of places to stop for a rest or visit on the way. We passed people playing live music, visited the CPC exhibition and stopped to take various photos along the way. About 3/4 of the way up we found a zip line that you could ride, without being able to read the sign I believe the cost is 35rmb. The walk up and a visit to the white pagoda are free and the views over the yellow river and views of the city are impressive.

Taking the gondola up and then walking down gave a great overview of Lanzhou city. The Pagoda was well kept and interesting.

I and friends took the gondola life to the top of the mountain and then walked our way to the White Pagoda Temple and down to the Iron Bridge. There were many excellent views of Lanzhou and the Yellow River as well as lots of places to stop, rest, and refresh. There are some maps and informational signs in English, which supplemented our guide book.

The best way to view the White Pagoda is to include a visit to the Steel bridge as part of your visit. There is a cable car available to take you to the top of the mountain, but most people, even not so fit, can manage a leisurely walk up the mountain. I am 63 and only walking fit and I enjoyed the walk - the views are amazing. There is a lot to see - many of the temples are truly worth visiting and the main Buddhist temple is a place of great peace and tranquillity. The Pagoda itself is a very simple - but old building and the views are stunning.
