What people are saying:

Gantong Temple under the Gantong Cableway, if you have enough time to visit the Cangshan Mountains in Dali, you can go up to check in. It takes 5 minutes to walk up from the plaque. It is quite tiring to walk. You can buy incense by yourself.

    Tea at the nunnery

    This is a lovely temple, reached by a lovely walk through the woods. Behind the courtyard is a nunnery with a reading room and a tea room that are lovely quiet sanctuaries. I wanted to linger all day.

    Best starting point to explore the mountain.

    Explore every trail for a slow climb up the mountain from here. This is one of the best things to do in Dali. I won't say too much.
