This place has some amazing views of West Lake as well as the impressive Pagoda. There are many paths that take you there and if you try them all, it will definitely take a couple hours and is worthwhile as the paths take you to many different places in many different directions.

Its a nice hike up. Not too difficult and doable with elementary grade children. It is a wooded area so there is a nice quite forest around you. Very good to leave the crowds behind.

Need to explore this place if you have extra time and energy left. Lot of steps to climb and can have a nice view of the west lake from the top. The walk through the jungle kinda place and exploring the temples and cave nearby is too much fun.

The view on the lake and surroundings is nicer than the Pagoda itself. If you want a decent and very nice hike walk in the direction of the Taoist temple you have also some nice caves there. To go up all the way takes about an hour.

We went here during the Golden week, which was really a mistake. The place was so crowded, that people where stepping over each other to get to the viewing spots. There are some places with narrow steps, so it was really hard to get to the rocks with all these people pushing around you. The pagoda itself is beautiful, you... More

The Baochu Pagoda, besides West Lake and the Pagoda of Six Harmonies is the most noticeable attraction in Hangzhou. It appears beautiful from afar and is even nicer the closer you get to it. After the trek, the views are beautiful and tranquil. It was an oasis as the crowds are definitely fewer there than practically anywhere else in Hangzhou.

Baoshi hill with slim Baochu pagoda on the top is your place if you want to escape from crowds around West lake. Moreover, after the hiking up, you will be rewarded by excellent view of lake surrounded by hills and city. You can take short but steep hike mostly walk on the stairs, entrance is from Beishan road (near West... More

Baochu Pagoda, seated on Hangzhou Baoshishan Mountain, was built 1000 years ago and now is one of the city's landmarks. It has seven floors and was rebuilt many times. Apart from watching the pagoda, visitors can also appreciate the beautiful surrounding. Baoshishan Mountain is a nice place for hiking and relaxing.

Hearing the people shouting as part of tai chi while hiking up the hill in the morning to get to this pagoda is a unique experience. Not too strenuous.

Climbing this mountain was a great experience. At the beginning I was scared because I went with my friend after a raining day so it was slippery and I was so afraid to fall. Hopefully everything went well.
