Ascending the Jade Emperor Mountain to Ziyun Cave, which is the best vantage point, takes about half an hour but once you arrive you will realize it was worth every step.

Nine Creeks and Eighteen Gullies

Nine Creeks and Eighteen Gullies

Nine Creeks and Eighteen Gullies is embedded in between mountains and winds its way for seven kilometers from Longjing until it reaches the Qiantang River. Now that spring is here, visiting the creek’s crystal-clear waters, camping or enjoying a barbeque are all ways in which to heighten our senses this spring.

Meijiawu Village

Meijiawu Village

The village, located in the south of Meiling Tunnel, stretches for over 5000 meters along Meiling Road. The Meiling Ancient Path that leads from Lingyin area to Tianzhu and Meijiwu Village has now been altered into a mountain road and it boasts fresher than fresh air and is an ideal place for cycling, enjoying farm-themed fun and most importantly, savoring a cup of freshly picked Longjing green tea.

Mailing Peak

From east of Manjuelong Village, after passing Shiwu Peak, Cishanbu, one will reach Mailing Peak at the foot of Southern Peak and Santaishan Mountain. Mailing Peak has been frequented by many ancient scholars and literati, who have left behind them a wealth of treasures like Lu You – a prominent poet of China's Southern Song Dynasty.

Bamboo-Lined Path at Yunqi

The Bamboo-Lined Path at Yunqi is full of tranquility, greenery and fresh air. Start from Sanju Pavilion and you will hike in and amongst a variety of bamboo.


Jiulisong was once one of the Top Eighteen Views of Old Qiantang (currently known as Hangzhou). It is the earliest man-made border tree area around the West Lake, which is said to date back to 725 AD. After all these years, the pine trees have grown to towering heights, flanking the road and forming its unique charm.

Ciyunling Peak

Ciyunling Peak is located in between Jade Emperor Mountain and Jiangjun Mountain, also known as Phoenix Mountain. It stretches northwards to the bank of the West Lake and southwards to the bank of the Qiantang River.

Ciyunling Peak is a century-old ancient path embraced by mountains around the West Lake. Its construction was ordered by Qianliu, the king of Wuyue Kingdom, for the transportation convenience between Xihu District and Jianggan District. It used to be a lively path for pilgrims getting to temples, but now has become a road featuring pastoral beauties in all four seasons and an ideal place for sightseeing and relaxation.

Fenghuang Peak

Fenghuang Peak is where Nine Creeks and Eighteen Gullies start and the areas around it are one of the production areas of Longjing tea leaves. After passing the south end of Fenghuang Peak, one can then head to Longjing to taste the world famous brew.
