These mountains, oh these mountains need to be walked. For the able bodied, take absolutely no notice of what some say of how hard they are to walk.. The mountains have a Cloud Travellers path which is easily traversed in a day. A tiring day perhaps which could be shortened by chair-lifts. The wiki travel guide gives a good overall... More

In one day you will see horses, snow, local people and a lot of waterfalls and mountains rivers. Better to go in the morning so you will get enough time to walk and take photos and have a rest and so on.

I went up to the mountain with my family, the kids keep complaining about the heat and always say "Could we go on the horse?" They were also a bit scared of the many graves that we saw on the way up. There are horses provided on the bottom of the mountain for quite a reasonable price but I decided... More

You can easily walk to Cang Mountain from Dali old town, it takes app. 20min. Walk to the western gate to the north, across the big road and up between lots of houses. When the houses start to thin out there is a sign in both Chinese and English pointing the way. We first took the cable car halfway up... More

Changshan seen from miles around is snow peaked. There are 19 peaks altogether and they all are over 3000 meters above sea level. There is a paved walkway from the top chairlift station that passes several waterfalls and overlooks the city of Dali and Erhai Lake. Marvelous view and an easy walk. .

There are three cable cars shown on the map, but only two routes were working. The central one comprises three lifts and goes to the top of the mountain. Often the top lift will not be working due to weather conditions, so if you buy a cheaper ticket in town, you may end up with an unusable part. The central... More

Take the Cable car up, way up and look down at the city below. Marvellous and in heaven. Look up and touch the cloud. Actually we did as it was settling in on the Mountains while we came. Unbelievable feeling to be inside the clouds. Bring warm clothing as it can get real cold all of a sudden.

I wouldn't miss this for the world. The hike up Cang Shan is really exhausting but don't give up until you get to the Cloud pass! You will be greatly rewarded with the breath taking views of Cang Shan, the beautiful bays of Erhai lake and its island. Cloud pass or "jade path" in Mandarin is dozen kilometers stretching from...

The cable car, which has been open for only a year or so, was superb. The price is relatively high at RMB206 especially as as soon as we reached the summit we were told that on account of the high winds we would have to go straight down again. We were wise to do as we were told as had... More
