We visited the mountains around Cangshan on our first day in Dàlǐ and highly recommend it. We wanted to hike the whole path from the chairlift to the cable car. We really struggled to find the path to the chairlift and in the end had...More

I spent 4.5 hours at Canshan, but was insufficient to visit majority of attractions. I recommend allocating 1 full day for the visit. Cangshan entrance ticket 40rmb, while the cable car ticket from bottom to top (2-way) is a hefty 300rmb. To be fair, the...More

I had really high expectations about this place. But it was just average for very high price. They treated their visitors so bad, the ticket costs 300Rmb, and after that you have to pay more, some extra fees. I don't understand why that incredible price...More

Take a whole day out of your itinerary and get away from the crowds in Dali. We did the hike up the mountain from the cable car site - the path splits shortly after the police checkpoint and we took the right hand route. This...More

It's not actually a hike since most of the time you'll be on concrete. It's a very pleasant an scenic walk though. The views from the top are nice. You dont need to take the cable car. How to get in for free: Take the...More

sorry for a late reply. I'm sorry I don't know because I haven't been on top. However, along the snake path there are many spots that could serve as a good camping spot. I am not entirely sure whether it is allowed by local... More
