Cangshan Mountain, Dali

Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web
A prime hiking spot in a biodiverse landscape, Cangshan Mountain boasts 18 peaks, all reaching an elevation of over 3,500 m (11,482.9 ft). Hike from the bottom or take the cable car up the side of the mountain to the popular Cloud Pass trail. A relatively flat, paved path running 12 km (7.4 mi) along the mountains, it offers striking views of Erhai Lake twinkling against the range's highest peak, Malong, some 4,122 m (13,524 ft) high. A temple provides a welcome rest stop, with refreshments and supplies to continue your journey. Look out for the many marble crafts available, extracted from the mountain's rich quarries.

  • We took up the gondola (through a beautiful valley) on the one hand and ran around 12 km up to the mountain station of the chair lift, and drove back to Dali down. The valley station is about 25 minutes to the upper part of the old town. The roads are all paved and well marked and have therefore no difficulties. Super views of the Lake and the surrounding countryside. The gondolas are expensive. There's catering facilities on the mountain.

  • 喜欢走一条小路,就在一塔路一路向上,一直走到玉带路,欣赏最优美的风景。门票价格是30元,当然也可以买索道票上最高处,我有心理危机感,不愿意做哈哈。
