To go to the ancient city of Lijiang, you do not need to go to Sifang Street or the big waterwheel, but you have to go to Lion Rock, the best place to see the panoramic view of the ancient city of Lijiang. When you climb the mountain, you will sigh the grandeur of the ancient city And beautiful. Lion Mountain is the highest peak of the ancient city of Lijiang. It is just on the edge of the ancient city and is not very high. As the stone steps rise slowly, you can overlook the entire ancient city. We climbed all the way from the Mufu Scenic Area. Tickets for Mufu are 40 yuan, which is worth a visit. It is recommended to book a package of Mufu plus Lion Rock for 60 yuan online, because the Lion Rock is a must visit. Tickets are sold separately for the 2 scenic spots and ticket inspection is required. The Lion Rock is named because the mountain is like a sleeping lion. The ancient city buildings follow the mountain and surround the foot of the Lion Rock. The Lion Rock has become the best place to enjoy the panoramic view of the ancient city of Lijiang. There is a "Lion Mountain Observation Deck in the Old Town of Lijiang" on the mountain, which is one of the best places for tourists to appreciate and photograph the scenery of the ancient city. Many tourists choose to leave a "visit here" photo here. In fact, the Lion Rock has a total area of 150,000 square meters. The mountain is lined with trees, ancient trees and the sky, and the sound of birds is endless. Walking all the way is a different scenery. On the top of the mountain is a five-story pavilion with Naxi characteristics. The all-wood structure with double eaves-Wangu Building, is a landmark in Lijiang, you must go up and see it. The southern end of Lion Rock Park is the Baima Longtan Temple which was built during the Qianlong period of the Qing Dynasty, and the northern end is the Wenchang Palace which was built during the Yongzheng period of the Qing Dynasty. The Lion Mountain is not high, and it does not take much physical effort to climb up. If you start from Sifang Street or the big waterwheel, you can climb to the top in 15 minutes. If you don’t enter the park to visit, you can find some restaurants and leisure bars outside the scenic area. You can also enjoy the scenery of the ancient city, but you can't see the other visual scenery. However, when choosing accommodation, try to consider the inn going down the mountain with suitcases and it is still very tiring.
