Nothing hugely spectacular, but a lovely place to wander around. We got the cable car up which was about 40rmb as I recall, Definitely a good decision as it's a steep climb (and who doesn't love a cable car?). We then followed the signs down towards the steel bridge, stopping at the various pagodas and temples on the way down.... More

Just across the Zhong Shan Bridge is Baita Park. There is much more than just the pagoda. There are a number of classical buildings, temples and lots of shady areas to sit and relax, like the locals do. There are a number of teahouses as well, not overpriced, not any more than the teahouses by the river anyway. A mug... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our 1.5 hour walk up and down through this park. The park is vertical on the side of a low mountain with the White Pagoda on the top. It is a leisurely walk up, not overly strenuous. There is also a cable car up 3/4s of the way and a zip line down for the more adventurous. It... More

There is an easy climb up to the top of the mountain, as with everything in China, it's all paved and covered in stairs. Nice view of the city from the top.

I visited this park in a sunny day in late November . There were a lot of locals . Here you can find a lot of Chinese temples on the slopes . It's a bit difficult to get to the top to see the White Pagoda . There was a lift , but it does not work .

While we followed the hoards across the ancient bridge we appeared to be walking to something very touristy. Lets just say my selfie stick was not lonesome. And yes, there were plenty of friendly tourists asking to get their pictures with us.(I don't think it was because of my one appearance on the Price is Right.) We started up the... More

If you have trouble walking or climbing stairs this is not the place for you. It is a series of beautiful Buddist temples clinging to the side of a large hill.

Went in around 2:30pm on 20Sep2015. Wind is nice and cool but the sun can still be scotching hot. Didnt stop at the white pagoda, continued to explore the temples around. At the top, you can have a nice unblocked view of yellow river, the 1st bridge of yellow river and the opposite side of the city. Steps and stairs... More

The hike up can be a hot one, but the views are worth it. The main temple area is busy. Hike beyond the temple along the ridge for less crowded viewpoints. In summer the height makes it a good few degrees cooler than the city.
