Kunming (Meals: -/L/-)
Depart from your hotel to have private city tours to Dragon Gate Stone Carvings. Totally cut on a natural precipice, with an elevation of 2,500 meters, 8 kilometers west of Kunming city, the Dragon Gate is the highest temple on the West Hill. It is famous for its spectacular view. Climbing up the winding old stone stairs leading to the natural cliff-top platform, passing through an archway on which is inscribed “Longmen” (Dragon’s Gate), many inscriptions and steles are found here and there. You will have a birds-eye-view of Kunming city and the Dianchi Lake.
Then visit Grand View Pavilion. Located 7 kilometers west of Kunming, at the lakeshore of Dianchi Lake, the Grand View Pavilion was built in 1682, decorated with flying eaves and splendid paintings, the present-day pavilion is a square, three-storied pavilion established in 1883. It is famous for the longest antithetical couplet in China, this couplet of 180 characters is one of the most valued cultural treasures in Yunnan Province. It provides a spectacular view across sparkling Dtanchi Lake to the distant Western Hills. Be transferred back to your hotel.
