The main attraction at the xishan park. Went down along the cliff's steps to the dragon's gate. Maybe it was too crowded with tourist. Couldn't stay at that place for long since the temple was small.

Easy to get to by subway. We bought a ticket that included all transport options when we reached there. We took a bus up to the tourist entrance area near the top and back. It was a long walk up otherwise. From the top we...More

There was lots of climbing on unsafe steps without handrails to view nothing spectacular or fascinating; unless you are superstitious in touching the turtle, dragon & cow for good fortune. The weather was hazy & you could view the coastline from atop. Again, nothing to...More

A must visit in Yunnan. Spectacular scenery from the top. Getting to the Dragon Gate is difficult, but worthwhile. One actually walking through the side of the mountain. Individual over 5’10” should be cautious not to bum the top of the passage.
