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.

It costs ¥50 to climb up the hill. This is on top of the entrance fee to Mufu Palace so it is a little pricey. However, the views are absolutely amazing. It’s worth the cost. Go to the top and enjoy the views!

Refused to pay an additional 50 rmb (on top of the 80 rmb protection fee) just to go on a hill and see a temple that is basically new. We used the money to have a drink in one of the nearby restaurants instead to...More

In our case much less touristy and nicely away from the buzz of Old Town Lijiang. Great views of the Old and New Town of Lijiang and the mountains in the background. On the top you will find Wangu tower, which is also pretty. Practicalities:...More
