Fantastic!
Apr 2021 • Solo
There are three cableways up the mountain - Gantong (goes half way), Ximatan (the longest one), and Zhonghe (as of today, only available for people who work there).
The mountain is amazing, it offers great views and some nice walks. The hiking is easy as the most work is done by the cableway. On top of the ximatan cableway it gets very cold, but you can rent a coat (how smart is that?).
Unfortunately as of now the hike from Gantong cableway to zhonghe one is not available, as you have to take the same way down as you took up, which is a pity, because the trail is really awesome there.

Good hikes and views... do carry water
May 2018 • Family
You can rough it out by hiking up the mountains, or take a cable car up and walk/ hike there....either ways this is a far cry from the bustling old city, with fabulous views. Carry enough water...there arent many shops water stations except near cable car stops.

Considered a not to be missed activity
Apr 2018 • Couples
The chair lift from start to finish is about a 20 minute ride up the hill. Nice and peaceful with birds and the odd wind gust wind. You passed over grave sites in amongst the trees.
Once at the top, we walked to the right and around every corner the view was excellent.

Sightseeing with nice view
Dec 2017 • Friends
If you had too much with the ancient city, heads out to the mountain (there's cable cars) for different view of the town.

The dragons cave
Aug 2017 • Couples
There are several cable cars op to the mountains around Dali.
One of them to the east goes up to the dragons cave with the maiden pool.
the lighting inside is very nice but it gets very crowded.

Long ride

The ride to the island is long, but the walk around the island and observing the islanders was cool.

natural clouds factory

We can enjoy the landscape which clouds bring and go back and forth. I'll recommend to take it for about 2 hours by sightseeing boat.

Amazing Mountain Great Energy!!
Apr 2017 • Couples
This mountain is amazing, it can be a little crowded, but if on the walk way you head south, you will find yourself away from most people and when you get to the cable cart, do not take it!! Go down the mountain by foot, you will find some awesome bridges, and the whole trail is next to the stream! Barely anyone around, it does take you out south, but jump on a bus in the Main Street and it will take you to the gate of old town in a heart beat!

Stunning views of Erhai from Cangshan Mountains
Feb 2017 • Family
If you want to admire Erhai and the surrounding villages below, there are two different cable cars on Cangshan. A Mid-level on Gantong Road brings you @ 3,000 meters or the higher one, facing Old Dali, at 3,900 meters. A little cold so bring wear warm clothing especially if you have kids
