Fodor's Review

The slender spire of Baochu Pagoda rises atop Diamond Hill. The brick and stone pagoda is visible from about anywhere on the lake. From the hilltop you can see across the lake to Hangzhou City. Numerous paths from the lakeside lead up the hill, which is dotted with Buddhist and Taoist shrines. Several caves provide shade from the hot summer sun.
