Kunming Dragon Gate, Kunming
(4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Admire the panorama of Lake Dianchi and Kunming from Kunming Dragon Gate, an observation deck and a grotto complex perched on a steep cliff. Carved into Western Hills and part of the highest temple in the area, the colorful gate stands at an altitude of 2,500 m (8,000 ft), overlooking a precipitous cliff. Inside the cliff, 18th-century monks created a number of caves, corridors, and pavilions. Take a chairlift up to the top of the mountain and then walk down to the gate via stone stairs through scenic evergreen woods. There is a restaurant near the site.

  • 冬季時分走入西山龍門景區, 遊客並不太多, 讓人盡享此處幽靜之美. 往上爬行, 往山上諸殿參拜, 可沿途眺望滇池美景, 賞心悅目, 心曠神怡. 西山山路不長 坡度也不致於太陡. 唯獨部分路徑非常窄, 與人相會而行時需格外注意.
