Lake
_We***88A very beautiful and calm lake. I found many different spots where I could sit down and enjoy a peaceful moment looking at the lake and the mountains. You can also take a small boat trip and enjoy the view all around you.

Cultural Experiencial Area
Temple
Ash & MedsFor those of you who are nearly templed out, hang in there for one more cultural park! The 3 pagodas are just the beginning, behind them lays temple after temple. The main pathway leading to the temple breaks off into goregous garden paths, which are well worth exploring.After exploring the park, you can enjoy a simple, yet delicious, vegetarian buffet for 20¥. You can easily spend a couple of hours in the park and I would say it's worth the 75¥ ticket.

Mountain
Ash & MedsChangshan Mountain (park tickets 30¥)Highlights - There are 3 cableways Gantong, Ximatan and Zhonghe. Ximatan is the only one that will take you to the top (we ran out of time, but wished we did this one). Gantong is 75¥ for a return ticket and takes about 10-15mins. Very touristy, not much to see or do at the top, personally wouldn't recommend. Zhonghe- This is a very slow chairlift, takes about 35-40mins, 60¥ return ticket. Far less tourists. We recommend the hike behind the temple. Head to the right for some amazing views (1st 4 photos).

Ancient Settlement
_We***88A very enjoyable area with many small streets, temples, shops, art and beautiful views. It’s very colourful and has a great atmosphere. You can definitely spend a few hours exploring this amazing old town with its traditional architecture and art & crafts and culture. There are also many snacks and food places all around. I had an excellent afternoon and evening here :)
