Western Hills Park

Admission:

Free

Hours:

24 hours daily

How to get there:

The Western Hills Park is located 16 km (10 mi) southwest of Kunming. You can either take a taxi for RMB 30 or bus nos. 6 or 51 to get there.

Kunming's Western Hills Park (Xīshān Gōngyuán, 西山公园) stretches alongside the western shores of Dian Lake, providing acres and acres of outdoor entertainment.

Trails throughout the park link several temples and other ancient structures (Huating Temple, Taihua Temple, Sanqing Ge) and chairlifts and cablecars ensure that most of the park is accessible to those who aren't in the mood for hiking. Dragon Gate, near the top of the mountain, is certainly a highlight, and various other caves and gardens should satisfy those seeking a natural repose from Kunming's concrete.
