It is always difficult for me to do reviews like this. I do not like heights. I do not like to climb down from high places especially. This made visiting Baochu Pagoda difficult for me. That being said, if you are ready for a vertical...More

Sits atop a hill overlooking the north side of West Lake and is easily accessible via a short but steep climb, mostly a staircase all the way. Close up viewing reflects its age (first constructed in 900s but more recently has had its top replaced)...More

The area has good trails and different viewpoints. The rocky summit near the pagoda is a popular place. The views of the lake and the city make the sometimes steep but short climb worth the effort. The pagoda itself is somewhat interesting, not ornate.

It was a very rewarding climb up this little hill, past the Pagoda and onto the rocks at the top. The views were amazing

The pagoda is accessed from a track that leads off a small road beside West Lake and is a very pleasant walk through a forested hillside, which provides relief from the heat and noise of the area below. The taoist pagoda itself has been renovated...More

It is situated on one of the hills in Hangzhou and it looks very nice, especially during spring or summer, when the trees are green.

It was not very difficult to access to Baoshi Mountain where the pagoda located. On the top you could have nice view over West Lake, particularly Bai Causeway. Many photo takers walked uphill early in order to snapshoot the sunrise scenery from the pagoda.
