A taxi will cost you about 10 yuan. It is a Nice little hike up the Mountain with a view over Xining. Not too touristic, and for free. Seems like under construction, despite still worth the visit!

Very nice temple and it's free now. But a little difficult to climb the sky stairs. Otherwise it's a good place for know Dao and can have a good view of Xining from the mountain.
