Cangshan Mountain, Dali

4.4
#2 of 10 in Parks in Dali
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.
