About this place

Western Hills is situated in the western suburb of Kunming and it is about 15 km away from down town. Western Hills are also known as "Sleeping Buddha Hills" or  "Sleeping Beauty Hills" as the outline of the hills look like a giant sleeping Buddha or a beautiful young lady laying beside Dianchi Lake with her face upward and her hair trailling into the lake. Dragon Gate Grotto is the highlight of Western Hills with temples and statues carved out of the cliff. You may have a bird's eye view of Kunming in Dragon Gate Grotto.
