Take a stroll in this area of West Lake if you want to enjoy the scenery near the waterway and gardens. So peaceful and expansive enough for a little more privacy versus the heavily trafficked area with large tourist crowds.

Part of the West Lake and the Botanical gardens. We visited beginning of August and the weather was suitable. Nice shooting location and a path just below the lake surface making the people appear walking on the water. Fun to be around for 2-3 hours.

The interesting places of this park are the Baochu Pagoda, the Qui Jin's tomb and the lake itself. We took a relaxing 3 to 4 hours stroll and we had a picnic on the shores. But do not go during holidays because it is crowded with street sellers trying to flee you of your money plus they just ruin your quest for calm and quiet trip

This is a beautiful place to visit on your visit of West Lake. It can get crowded, and someone is always selling some infernal noisemaker to children, but it is a beautiful place. Must visit when at West Lake/ Xihu.

Gu Shan is the best spot to have best photos of ancient China
With the background of Lifeng Pagoda.

Most of the tourists queuing for taking pictures. Bike are allowed to pass this bridge

Walked along the Beishan Road from Baochu Pagoda crossing the bridge over to Qui Jin's tomb and Gu Shan park and through the gardens of Solitary Hill and along the long causeway back to the east side of Beishan Road. Pleasant scenic stroll of around 2 hours over this natural island on the West Lake. Relaxing afternoon.

There were many scenic spots around Gu Shan with statues, pavilions and beautiful trees along the route surrounding Solitary Hill. It was nice to stroll along the pathway and uphill while some local residents were found doing exercises around the area. So if you have time during your visit in Xihu, recommend you to try this route after you have complete your planned itinerary in Hangzhou.

Very traditional Chinese garden park. Truly beautiful inside out.
Best time to see is in the early morning, with fresh air and quiet environment.

We have walked along the side from Bai Causeway via the museum and restaurant side for several times in the past and this time we tried our way on the other side of the island or say at the back of Solitary Hill facing Bai Shan Road. It was quite calm with trees and pavilions. The way was also scenic far away from the noisy commercial area. Recommended to tourists if you have time.
