See the whole city from the top
Dec 2019
The view is just amazing from the top! You can see the whole city, old and modern buildings alltogether, and the West Lake too, it's just breathtaking. It took me a while to go up to the hill where it is located, but it was totally worth it. The ticket was 30CNY/person.

great view
Dec 2018 • Family
stopped by on the way back from Pagoda of Six Harmonies and Silk Museum. It has an elevator to the top. Apparently, there is a big banquet room at the top if you want it to host your closest 16 or so friends/family. 360 view of Hangzhou and the river. beautiful!

Its not just for the views
Oct 2018 • Friends
Its not just for the views, they are spectactular without a doubt! The walk through the park is very tranquil especially after walking down Hefang street, with the mobs of people. The pagoda it self is wonderful sight. I will return to this place at dusk to enjoy the vistas at night.

Magnificent displays on the ground floor
Feb 2017 • Couples
Atop Wushan hill stood a fairly new Chinese style pavilion, Hangzhou Chenghuang Pagoda (Pavilion of the City God). The pavilion is big, seven storeys high, with elevators. We took the elevator all the way up to the sixth floor and had a magnificent panoramic view of the West Lake and part of the city. What impressed me the most were the displays of historical culture and folk customs of the olden times on the ground floor. I made my camera work hard and it was worth it.
When you go to this attraction there are a bit over 100 steps to climb.
Happy Travelling!

Beautiful and highly photogenic
Apr 2017 • Solo
I decided to visit this pagoda because I could see it all lit up from from the lake. I visited the pagoda the next morning as the entrance was about 10 minutes from my hotel.

The pagoda sits atop a hill next to Hefang street, and you can start climbing the hill from Hefang street as well. The hill was an easy climb, and I got to the top in about 10 minutes. The entry fee was about 30 RMB. I went and explored the building starting from the very top. The views from the top were great, but once I started down, I wasn't able to see any of the other floors. It looked like there were a couple of restaurants in the pagoda, but because I had gone so early, nothing was open.

There are many other things to do on the top of the hill including a few Taoist temples. I found that the views of the pagoda are much better than actually paying the entrance fee and going in.

The pagoda is beautiful and every picture that I took of it looked great!!

Lovely Temple Grounds and a Great View
Aug 2016 • Couples
Once you hike to the top of Wushan Mountain from He Fang Jie, you can't miss Chenghuang Temple! There are many huge camphor trees on the grounds and surrounding areas as they are sacred trees in Buddhism (and they are also the city tree of Hangzhou!) Inside the pagoda, you can climb to almost all levels of the pagoda, but of course, the best view is from the deck at the top! It's a great place to drink in the scenery from a new point of view.

Although it's beautiful during the day as well, the best part is when the lights come on at night!

Superb .. Do not miss it in Hangzhou
Aug 2016 • Couples
Surprisingly enough I couldn't find the place in Tripadvisor so it seems I am the first to review it...

Why surprisingly ?

Just look at the pictures I have attached, as I am using to do, so you can understand what I mean....
The place is absolutely splendid.

We saw it from far, actually when we walked from the West Lake to Hefang Street. It is located at the top of a hill contemplating all the surroundings. It is, actually 5 minutes from Hefang Street and 10 from the west lake (timed).

This place is magnificent ...by daylight ... but especially at night !
Our guide recommended we visit the place by night and he was definitely right .
Thanks Duddi ... Zion, yes ...him :-)

We were there after 19:00 and the Pavilion closing apparently after 20:00 so we were just in time ... but a bit late actually.

The cost of the ticket as almost always in China (as far as we experienced it) is not expensive: 30 Yuan = less than 5$.

After entering the park we reached the main building and climbed it straight to the 6th floor (there is an elevator) ...and there you have all Hangzhou and the West Lake offered to you...

The view is simply breathtaking !

After the 6th floor you just go down to visit the building itself, in traditional Chinese architecture, with other interesting scenes and exhibitions inside.

And after that you can just walk in the park which is very well lighted at night and simply beautiful ...

As I wrote we were to late to walk all the park so we missed a lot of it and especially two other interesting buildings.

Bottom line I believe this site is a must in Hangzhou, not expensive, close to the Lake and the Hefang Street, it would be too bad to miss it ...at dusk and at night of course.
