I found the place quite easily following the map provided on here. There is a small charge of 40 RMB. The entrance to the actual path was a bit tricky to find and I missed it at first. There was literally no one else walking and the only person I saw was a guy coming down on horseback. It's not... More

You can hike up (2hr) or take the cable car and then proceed to the jade cloud path along the sides of the mountain. Very easy walk with fantastic views of the city and landscape. Definitely a must visit if you're in Dali.

We went up on cable car (30 RMB per person) to Zhonghe temple and walked from there to 7 dragons maidens ponds. On the way we saw amazing streams, walked through the clouds and there was only a few people that came across. Peacefulness, fresh air and scenery was mind blowing! Walking is very easy as there are no hard... More

We met with bad weather so the view was not very good. Very impressive views though. Worth a visit to experience it personally

After a day in Dali old town and a day on Erhai Lake, we decided to walk the Jade Belt Trail just to the west of Dali old town. It's about 500m above the lake and you can take a gondola lift up slightly to the south of the town, walk the 12.5 km and take a chair lift down... More

You rather be prepared :) this was the highlight of my visit to dali! Thousand of steps up after the cable car.... you only go up like 60mts but boy.... painful! Is more than 3000 above the sea. The ticket includes the cable car, the area in the middle of the Mountain where you change the cable cars, and what... More

We took a gondola up the mountain, easy 12 km hike and down the chairlift. It was very wet so we were in the mist, but this did not detract from the beauty. Totally recommend!

The Cloud Pass (aka Jade Belt Road) is a 20 km path running along Cangshan at around 2600 metres above sea level. For a reasonable walk the 10-11 km stretch between 2 cable car routes - Gantong Temple and Zhonghe Temple - is recommended. It makes for a good 3-4 hour walk. While it can be a challenge for old...

This is a great walk which allows for some nature, fresh air and escape from the business of the towns and cities. Many tourists will go up only to check out the view, so the actual hiking path is really quiet and very safe. Started off at Gantong (worth getting a taxi up there). 50rmb for the cable car (one...

Try the gangtong cable car, it's quite scary, but fun. Not the highest route. Spend one hour and its enough for sightseeing.
