What people are saying:

Great day trip from Shaxi. we walked to the first temple, nice views and chance to see a lot of monkeys. might be a good idea to take a stick some if them might get close to try and steal food. the view from the top of Baoxiang temple is amazing :)

    We were not particularly impressed perhaps because of the weather

    We arrived at the main gate and having paid, took the shuttle bus up to the smaller park area, hurtling at breakneck speed up the narrow roads. At our destination, we walked down about 300 steps into ...

    Walk to red temple

    It's an easy nice walk from old town to the mountain - most guesthouse provide a basic map. The view is nice and the red temple is a nice place to enjoy a packed lunch. You can go further up, but it...

Additional Information


Shibao Mountain is located in Jianchuan County, in northern Dali Prefecture. It has features typical of Danxia. The spherical stones, weathered by erosion, are unique in shapes and forms, with huge disparities in height. There are various sights on the moubntain, including the Shizhongshan Grottoes, Baoxiang Temple and Jinding Temple, and other ruins. The grottoes and cliff statues are especially famous. The grottoes are of comparable fame as the cliff statues of Dunhuang, leading to the saying "there is Dunhuang in the North, and Jianchuan in the South."
