Lion Hill can be accessed by walking all the way through Mufu Residence / Palace, half way up a hill. However, it is now 60 yuan (not 50) to enter. The views from the paved lookout area are nice, but most tourists are put off...More

The park itself is just as any park – green, nice and quiet. But once you reached the pagoda, you would have a great view on Lijiang ancient city and Haba Snow Mountain on horizon.
