It costs ¥50 to climb up the hill. This is on top of the entrance fee to Mufu Palace so it is a little pricey. However, the views are absolutely amazing. It’s worth the cost. Go to the top and enjoy the views!

In our case much less touristy and nicely away from the buzz of Old Town Lijiang. Great views of the Old and New Town of Lijiang and the mountains in the background. On the top you will find Wangu tower, which is also pretty. Practicalities:...More

Very nice place to have a stroll. Everywhere you look around, you will see the beautiful mountains behind Lijiang. It's a park around Wangu Pavilion, but you can't just walk here without paying the entrance fee. So only decide to come here if you're going...More

50rmb to have a look at a view was a bit steep for me so I walked around the hill and eventually came to the service road and just walked in unchallenged. There is a great tower on top from which you get panoramic views...More
