After reconstruction and planning at the beginning of this century, Hangzhou, known as the “Ten Sceneries of the West Lake”, is guarding the city with other mountains and waters.
Landscape is the soul of Hangzhou.
Although a West Lake is enough for it to be loved by thousands, planning a “Landscape+X” trip can make you open up another wonderful Hangzhou! The autumn tigers have retreated, the osmanthus flowers in Hangzhou are in full bloom, the landscape is fireworks, and you will find the answer to all your yearnings for travel in the cool autumn of Hangzhou~# X=Zhejiang Province, where Hangzhou is located, is the most soft place in China, where rivers converge to the sea, bringing more different ecological environments to the water town.
Although the customs of Jiangnan water town are the most well-known, in fact, most of them are low mountains and hills, known as “seven mountains, one water and two fields”.
The mountains here are also soft and watery, with streams, rivers, lakes and waterfalls surrounded by clouds and mist, which is somewhat tempered and soft.

The most popular is Gem Mountain.
It is close to the West Lake and the mountain is not high.
It is the first choice for Hangzhou citizens to climb mountains.
There are many routes on the mountain, but there are hiking trails and maps along the way.

You can have a panoramic view of the West Lake at Toad Peak, opposite Baoshi Liuxia.
Every night, Baoshi Mountain is as beautiful as its name because of its bright lights.
It is especially beautiful to watch on the other side of the lakeside road.

The ancient camphor trees in Wushan are flourishing, the crowd is bustling, and the market is full of gas.
When I arrived at Ziyang Mountain and Yunju Mountain, the rocks were rugged, quiet and profound.

You can either drive or walk.
The Hangzhou Museum is on the road.
We recommend going up the mountain from the Dajing Lane of Hefang Street.
This mountain path composed of more than 180 steps is strangely called “Huancuilou”, which is a millennium old road.
The high walled house beside this path is also called “Huancuilou”.

Go left to Wu Gongmiao in memory of Wu Zixu, and go right to Dongyue Temple.
There are tea houses under the shade of trees along the way.
Walk up the straight mountain road from the Dongyue Temple for 10 minutes to the City God Pavilion.
You can see the West Lake and the city from the top.
The view of the tea house on the third floor is excellent.
The stone of the twelve zodiac signs at the exit of the City God Pavilion is very famous, but it is difficult to connect with those twelve animals without looking carefully.
There is no rules for walking ten miles, and the roads in the mountains are connected, connecting Lingyin, Wuyun Mountain, Meijiawu, Longjing, Jiuxi and other places.
LP here recommends the ten mile pendant from the upper Tianzhu Meiling tunnel entrance, which takes about 1.5 hours.
It is also a relatively physical walking route.
© Freez_ Zui Ying/Tu Bug Creative found the Tianzhu Bus Station at the Meiling Tunnel outside the main gate of the Faxi Temple, walked straight in, started climbing slowly, and could see the stone steps at the foot of the mountain in five minutes.
If you walk fast, you can reach the top of the mountain within 30 minutes.
From the top of the mountain, you can see an open ridge.
The farmhouses and tea gardens at the bottom of the mountain are just for your first taste of fun.
Walking along the only road, you will see a stone tablet marked with a fork in the road between Tianzhu, Meijiawu and Wuyun Mountain.
This is the fork in the road.
Wuyun Mountain Yunqi Bamboo Path; © If you feel exhausted, you can go down the mountain in the direction of Meijiawu to have tea and dinner in the farmhouse.
Continue to walk towards the direction of Wuyun Mountain, and you will reach the best part of the mountain road in about 30 minutes.
Sometimes it is open, sometimes it is narrow, and the space changes constantly.
You can see the West Lake from the mountain road.
In fact, this is the Ten Mile Langdang Temple.
After walking along the mountain wall for a long time, you can reach the Zhenji Temple on the top of Wuyun Mountain within an hour.

This is the most intense part of the “fairy hidden” temperament.
Although it is called “peak”, it is more like a huge rockery, which can be climbed up along the stone steps.

They are all cliff carvings of Buddhas, Bodhisattvas and eminent monks from different dynasties and backgrounds.
You can refer to the introduction on the signboard below the peak to appreciate them.

Everyone craned their necks to look up, but only few people could see the light passing through the crevices# X=history and folklore Liangzhu civilization ignited the civilization kindling of the Paleolithic Age here; The Southern Song Dynasty composed elegy here; The figure of Ji Gong can be traced here; The love stories of Xu Xian and Bai Suzhen are widely spread.
Never before has the landscape of a city been as closely interdependent with history and legend as Hangzhou.

People like to go to the tower to taste the legend.
Today’s Leifeng Pagoda is about 72 meters high.
The new tower is wrapped around the old one, which is very special in design.
You can walk or take the sightseeing elevator to the top to overlook the West Lake.
