Lion Rock Mountain Wangu Tower : Lijiang China

Yunnan province and Lijiang were some of the nicest visits I’ve had to China so far, and I’ve been around – to many parts of China. Lijiang has a very well kept old town, and some world class attractions. At the center of the old town is Lion Rock Mountain with its Wangu Tower overlooking all of Lijiang, the old city and beyond, include all the region, from high above. Breathtaking views. To get to the hill, it’s best to start from Mu Mansion, a must attraction, a royal Ming dynasty palace. On the mountain, climb the Wangu Tower and walk around the small park, and wrap it up by chilling at one of the old tea houses.

 

Let’s start with Mu Mansion…
