This was the highlight of our Hangzhou West Lake tour. There are an easy and a more physically demanding ways to climb the Pagoda; take an escalator/lift or simply climb up the stairs.

Along the way, take a rest & admire the beautiful scenery of the lake. The ruins of the original Pagoda is preserved within the building itself. The legend is also depicted in murals around the Pagoda too.

The picture perfect 360 degrees view is the main draw. We like!

It's worth the value to visit once and see a great view of the West Lake. With that said, only "once". There are much better free spots around the lake that are a bit quieter and you will be able to enjoy yourself.

If you want a great view of West Lake, along with the opportunity to see an absolutely beautiful pagoda, then I would highly recommend stopping here! Don't worry if you are not a climber. There are elevators available. Once you reach the top, you not only get see the entirety of West Lake, but also a huge portion of Hangzhou. Absolutely beautiful!

Came here upon advice from the hotel staff. Realised this was the setting for the famous chinese story "lady white snake"

Tip: Walk up the tower if you are able! Lift up has a long queue. Lift down is faster.

We were at this place in mid May 2019. The park itself is nothing to shout about, although the efforts in building this new pagoda around the old ruins is most commendable. Unfortunately, the old ruins is as the word suggests, old ruins of centuries old brick and mortar.
However, the "saving grace" is the view from the top of the pagoda. The panoramic view of Westlake is breathtaking. It was so beautiful. And the city of Hangzhou is sprawled magnificiently before our eyes too, blending in very nicely with the lakes.
It is indeed a spot worth adding into the travel itinerary.
