Routes to the Sun Viewing Pavilion
There are generally two routes to the Sun Viewing Pavilion. The first is longer but more comfortable: first take the cable to Baozhu Peak, and then hike to Sun Viewing Pavilion. The second route is shorter, but not easy to walk as travelers have to pass the Red Ladder. It generally takes 25 to 50 minutes to reach the Pavilion, depending on the pace.
In addition to hiking, visitors can also choose to view scenes on small yachts or bamboo rafts along the river, as some attractions will be viewed more clearly from the boat.
