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.

Dragon Gate is definitely a highlight of Kunming. It is a very well-kept scenic area, clean and safe with main signage and maps in English as well as Korean and Thai. I wanted to do this hike as cheaply as possible and because I was...More

Spent a long morning visiting Dragon Gate and since it was winter, there were not many tourists around. Fun walking along the cliff edge and also stopped at the Huating Temple. Well worth the visit.

We visited Dragon Gate around 2PM which meant that we had to be quite rushed exploring the mountain and scenery before the cable cars stopped running at 5PM. The cable cars (get a return ticket!) offer some pretty great views over the water and up...More

We were there in July 2017 and the weather wasn't great. It was raining almost all the time but it was warm and the mountain looked even more beautiful. We didn't calculate our time correctly and had to rush through the site. I think you...More

There is a nice long ski lift that can take you to the top if you don't feel like walking. At the top there is a easy 1km climb to the summit which gives you a nice view of the city which when I went...More
