This Pavilion is at the top of a small mountain. It is a bit of a climb but well worth it. Regretfully (or thankfully) it was closed for repairs so we could not climb up all 5 stories. The setting is relaxed and park-like. It...More

This is just behind the Mufu Palace but requires another 50RMB ticket, which many will decide against. They'll be missing out but their loss makes this all the more a tranquil place to wander round and see across the city. The pagoda at the too...More

This place located inside Lijiang Old Town, you can enter this place from behind of Mufu Palace. From here(up of the Pavilion, go upstair around 4or 5 floor if i am not mistaken), we can see Lijiang view (old and new one)

Unless you are a poverty-stricken backpacker don't listen to the people moaning about the ¥50 entrance fee. It's totally worth it for some great panoramic views of Lijiang. Go early in the morning (opens 8:30) to avoid the crowds.

I went to MUFU and when I walked up, there is a ticket booth that required me to pay CNY50. I think it is over priced because I paid 50 for MUFU and another 50 for Wangu. Actually it's nothing much up there, just to...More

It's nice here, but if you've been touring around seeing many temples, pavilions and pagodas, this one is not as pristine or awe-inspiring. However, you can get an excellent, panoramic view of the old town and Jade Dragon Snow mountain from the top! ¥50 is...More

Many visitors seem to be put off by the entrance fee, which is 50 rmb per person, but honestly, this place is a must visit! (Don't forget to bring your town entrance tickets.) Throughout your whole trip, you'll see beautiful views of Lijiang. Come here...More
