Paoma Mountain is not far from the city centre of Kanding. There is the  possibility of walking up the mountain by foot (free of charge) or by cablecar (RMB 30 per person). Be advised that in both cases there is a steep entrance fee of RMB 50 for getting to the viewing platform at the top of the mountain. Without paying the 50 RMB there is no view of the valley as everything is covered in trees below the entrance gates.
