Nice Place

We were this place in afternoon, but we were lucky : not rain, no sunny, Temperature average 18-20 degree C. Good for slowly walking.

There is tier after tier of this pagoda and temple complex, each more rewarding than the last. It is well worth the climb, but if you ate not up to it, there are electric buggies to give your legs a rest. It all starts with a giant courtyard in front of the pagodas followed by the pagodas themselves. Look carefully... More

The entrance fee stopped us from going in there. It costed like RMB120, and with a good camera you could actually take pretty great photos outside the fence.

The road to this magnificent site is directly in line with the tallest pagoda, which itself lies perfectly in line with the central temples beyond. Entrance seemed steep at 121 rmb, but I was charged 70rmb upon producing my passport to prove I am over 60, so that was a plus. But we had no idea as to how extensive... More

The pagodas are beautiful. The park where it is located is huge and you have to go up a lot of stairs to visit all the temple that are spread out in the park. But it is worth it. Not far from town, can walk there.

The three pagodas seem to be the thing that everyone seems to associate with Yunnan, no matter what ethnic park you go to in China. And while they are very pretty and a great sight, I think the real jewel here is the actual Chongsheng temple above it! As far as I understood it, it was built by a "retired"... More

The tree pagodas have been around for about 900 years at least. They are impressive, even if the weather is not great. There are areas where you can take some wonderful scenic shots. The temples behind it are beautiful but its hard to tell what is historical and what has been gaudied up.

Avoid the hot hours if the day as sun will burn you, and you have to walk quite a lot. Lots of temples and the 3 old pagodas that went through the 1996 earthquake. Do not stay with the group of people that will share the same golf car that brings you up the hill. Go first and forget the... More

Best to be feeling energetic because this is a very big site with a lot of steps. Truly impressive buildings. You can pay a bit extra for battery car shuttles which would be worth it is you are feeling a bit weary or it is a hot day.

Great site with great views. We spent most of the day here, took a ton of photos! Don't take the tram to the top and walk down, you will lose the effect of walking up to each stunning temple and the awe of finding an even more elaborate one behind it. It really is part of the experience. There aren't... More
