“Five Dragon Pool”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

Take bus 661-1 and pack a lunch. Food options were limited, unless you want to bbq but the selection looked sparse. The main attraction is the five major waterfalls and the pool below it. Each one has a colored dragon theme, hence the name Five Dragon Pools.

With the exception of the first foot path behind the statues when you first enter the park, you must take the footpaths if you want to see all five dragon pools. The fourth waterfall is the largest and most impressive. The fifth one was rather disappointing after the fourth one. After the fourth waterfall, the trail splits in two. One path continues to the 5th pool, and the other goes across the river and up to the ancient alter. The climb up to the ancient alter is strenuous, but the reward is a dragon pillar monument made from green malachite and the view is worth it. You’ll be able to see the 5th dragon pool on the way back.

Not long after you head down from the alter, there is another footpath to the left that leads you to end of the park and some caves. The caves are not impressive, but there is a man made dam/waterfall at the end of the path (and park). There is a sign for No Trespassing in Chinese, but hop across the river and take the foot path further up and closer to the dam. You will need to do some climbing but you can get on the top of the dam, and view the beautiful turquoise/blue-green lake above it.

“Great nature, nice hiking trail”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

Like many other scenic spots in China, this might feel a bit over-developed sometimes because of the concrete walking paths and pavilions in the middle of nature. But the place is beautiful all the same, passing through pond after pond on the way up with some nice waterfalls. The ponds are a great place to cool off in the sweltering summer heat and humidity, as nobody minds if you go for a nice swim.
There are some more adventurous hiking trails up the mountain if you wish for a more strenuous experience.
