Great views of lake and Dali, lots of Rhododendrons and small azaleas. We were up there for 4 hours. The haze burnt off for wonderful views and spectacular creeks.

I hiked both up and down and loved every moment. I found a quiet (broken up) path to Zhonghe temple then I hiked down the steps to the tv-radio station. In all I ran into 8 hikers and 6 workers. For a long weekend holiday...More
