There are many temples along this paved mountain path. Wish I had had more time to explore. The main pavilion has a fascinating carved mural that could be from any indigenous culture. The temples are Buddhist and Taoist. One big golden deity has a fierce look on his face and is holding up his middle finger!

On the mountain is a complex of Taoist and Buddhist temples. There are also areas of significance to the local Yi minority people.

Perfect day trip from Dali coupled with Weishan (the hotel arranged a local driver for us - 380rmb). This place is one of a kind: a succession of beautiful temples disseminated all over a mountain in the forest. We did not expect that the site would be so big and only stayed there 2.5hrs which was definitely not enough, esp.... More

Not far from Weishan, the entrance is a long way above the valley below. it is possible to follow a circular path taking in all the temples on the mountain - but we visited the first half dozen or so. There were few other visitors, so we had the place pretty much to ourselves. The temples are fascinating, each with... More

Took the bus from Dali to Weishan, then rented a car to Weibao Mountain. The Mountain was delightful and we spent a day exploring. Met friendly Daoist Monks, saw an 800 year old camellia tree and hardly saw any other tourists. Weishan Town was well worth the visit and a much more authentic old town than either Dali or Lijiang.... More

Rented a taxi to go there (400RMB for the return trip, organized by my hotel), and in merely 2 hrs we made it up to the mountain park. I seemed to be the only visitor (off season) only when I came down, I met two other people. It's a bit exhausting to climb up to the peak, if one is... More

Take something to drink and start early as there is much to see and many stone stairs to climb. I found the blending of Buddhist and Taoist icons - art fascinating. Using my pocket guide I had an interesting talk with some Taoist monks.

If you are good enough in Chinese to travel out of the main tourist sights, or just adventurous enough, this mountain and the village at the bottom of it (Weishan) will be a nice addition to your trip. Most of the temples give a very rustic impression, and although a few have been renovated the most interesting one is still... More
