Cangshan Mountain, Dali

(140+ reviews on the web)
Mountain
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. Put Cangshan Mountain into our Dali vacation generator to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Dali.
