I'm reviewing this but we actually didn't pay the entrance fee to go in. We thought it was too over priced, so we walked around the area, quite far around and were actually able to get quite a good view of all three pagodas, from different angles, without paying. I know in the grand scheme of things 120 RMB isn't... More

A nice place to visit different because of leaning towers. No good for those with crook knees although battery carts are available but you miss most of pavilions and the largest bell in Yunan. Cannot enter pagodas.

Bit pricey but you could spend a long time there even though you cant go up the pagodas. We didnt realise loads of temples behind the pagodas going up the hill.

This is a lovely area to walk through that does not take long but is quite pleasant. It does not have the historical significance we would like to romanticize it with and you will immediately see that the pagodas and temples were hastily put up buildings likely around the time that the olympics happened in China. Though this is a... More

Must visit and see the beautiful gardens and views of the historical pagodas and rimmed by snow tipped mountain ranges. DaLi was one of the most outstanding cities we came across in our travels. A must do on anyones itinerary visiting China.

This place is beautiful. And enormous! It is full of stunning temples. Like a Russian Doll they just seem to go on and on the further you go uphill! The pagodas themselves are interesting but it's everything else that made this place for me. We went early (about 9 am) and it wasn't busy at all.

Yes, it's a little bit expensive, but it worth it. You need couple of hours to get all the way up and down. Beautiful temples and the three pagodas. You can very magnificent pictures. You can get by foot from old town - 30 minutes, or you can take a bus 1 yuan, or a taxi -around 20-30 yuan

the three pagodas are beautiful, tranquil, serene and have very well maintained There is some walking to the site but nothing too strenuous. There was still a little snow remaining on the mountain making it a perfect scenario. The crowds were minimal making for a most enjoyable excursion.

It's ethereal and serene setting is beyond words! The temple structures go and on, as though you are strolling into the clouds! Kudos to the Chinese Government in collaboration with the province of Yunnan to have re-erected all the temple layers of ancient times. This is a sight NOT to be missed during your travels through Dali.

The area is far bigger than the three pagodas, it includes many temples in the back, climbing up the mountain. It's very well kept. It's views are beautiful too. You probably take 1,5 hour for the visit. Nevertheless, there is no special interest in those buildings, they are just s repetition of the traditional style.
