It costs ¥50 to climb up the hill. This is on top of the entrance fee to Mufu Palace so it is a little pricey. However, the views are absolutely amazing. It’s worth the cost. Go to the top and enjoy the views!

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

In our case much less touristy and nicely away from the buzz of Old Town Lijiang. Great views of the Old and New Town of Lijiang and the mountains in the background. On the top you will find Wangu tower, which is also pretty. Practicalities:...More

Very nice place to have a stroll. Everywhere you look around, you will see the beautiful mountains behind Lijiang. It's a park around Wangu Pavilion, but you can't just walk here without paying the entrance fee. So only decide to come here if you're going...More
