What people are saying:

[Scenery] Cangshan Mountain is behind the ancient city of Dali, to the west of Erhai Lake, the scenery is relatively beautiful. Locked walking is also relatively steep, Cangshan is also one of the four major scenic spots. Haibo has different landscapes. You can see Erhai Lake and Chongsheng Temple on the mountain. The mountains are relatively cold, so it is best to prepare winter clothes and oxygen cylinders in advance. If you go to mid-levels, you don’t need to take oxygen cylinders. Girls are best not to wear skirts. It’s really windy and pitted on it. It’s best to bring some food. The food on it is more expensive, so it’s best to prepare it carefully. It is recommended to go to Cangshan first. In the afternoon, you can play in the ancient city of Dali at night. The ancient city is more lively at night. The C10 bus from the ancient city of Dali can go to the ancient city of Dali, Tianlong Babu Film and Television City (Ximatan Cableway is just above). Some places such as the tourist bus terminal and the Three Pagoda Park are recommended. It's best to book tickets online in advance. The online price is a little cheaper. Come down from the mountain and let the Tianlong Babu Film and Television City play together. The film and television city has performances at different times.

    Great for a day trip
