Went out of curiosity of what the view would be like having already scaled the view point at the back of Mu’s mansion and been impressed. Very similar view to there and not a lot else besides. Wangu pavilion is impressive but lacking in history...More
A lovely walk up through the streets of Lijiang and then the steps up to the top. It's worth doing if the sky is clear. The bars at the top serve a great beer and (I understand) expensive but good jasmine tea.
