Highlight of Kunming
Jul 2021
Great way to spend a day. We only had one night in Kunming and Dragon's Gate was a great mix of culture, hiking, panoramic views and good food at the end. Found a Chinese noodle place that we really liked. Check the weather prior and go on a sunny day! There's little shuttle buses that i highly recommend buying tickets for. You can walk up the hill but not much to see there.

Interesting and great view of Lake Dian Chi.

Warning: if you are elderly or out of shape then this can be a strenuous climb to the top. Go on a weekday when it is not so crowded. We had to stand in quite a few lines on the way up and down.

Series of Temples cut into the cliffs above Daichi lake 200 years ago. Accessible only by narrow paths/tunnels cut into the cliff

We took a bus followed by chairlifts up to the TOP of the hill, then walk our way down . This is the easier way to see the site. The steps were painstakingly chiselled out along the cliffs by a Taoist priest and his followers in the Qing dynasty over 90+ years, can be slippery on a rainy day. The view was good.

Healthy walk with great views

If you are in the neighbourhood you should visit this mountain. It’s not always as easy to walk but it’s worth the beautiful views

Breath taking scenery
Nov 2019 • Couples
Expect to climb and a steep hike up, hence not very suitable for wheelchairs and young children.
Enjoy a breathtaking scenery by taking the gondola as well as the open air car ride activity. Best way to get there is to take the metro to the Xishan train station and walk 100m to the western hills scenic and ticketing area where they sell bus rides up the slopes at 12.50rmb. If u want to visit the yunnan cultural village, this is the place to take the gondola downward as well

There are also many local food stalls. U need at least 4-5 hours and expect lots of walking!

Not for the faint of heart
Sep 2019
This site is situated near to town and even with the haze the day we visited it is worth the effort and views over the city and lake. The temples hang the cliff side or are cut into the cliff face and when crowded those with a fear of heights might be uncomfortable. After cable car ride up, the paths down the cliff are all down hill at least. Stop off towards the bottom of the roadway to visit the Buddhist temple as well.

Nice view and weather
Oct 2019
To be there you can either walk or ride sky cabin... I prefer riding sky cabin to the top the walk down pass by all attract points.. Be careful your steps since it is high and not suitable for people with walking problem or arthritis... The weather and top view up there is wonderful... anyway.. crowded tourists...
