Introduction: This route boasts picturesque scenery with zigzag streams murmuring and emerald hills range upon range. A flagstone road winds its way along the ridge of the mountain, which is flanked by various kinds of trees and grasses swaying with autumn wind. From time to time, birds will hold a concert. It’s fairly relaxing.
Along the route, you will come across Northern Peak - a noted mountain in Hangzhou. It's an indispensable part of Twin Peaks Piercing the Cloud (双峰插云) - one of “Traditional Top Ten Views of West Lake”. On Northern Peak, stands an ancient temple - Huaguang Temple(华光寺) dating back to the Song Dynasty (960 —1279). It’s considered as the No.1 Temple of Mammon. At the foot lies Lingyin Temple.
