Lanshan Park

As a part of the Gaolan Mountain Range to the south of town, Lanshan Park is heralded by the Lanzhou people as the first artificial forest in the city. The communists themselves are proud in their conversion of this previously mostly bare mountain into the green park that you can see today. The park, perching on the mountain at an elevation of almost 500m above sea level, contains pavilions, halls and a profusion of trees.

The temperature of the park is generally speaking around 5 degrees C. cooler than the city below. This makes it the ideal summer resort for those roasting in the city proper. A trip here should take up most of your day, if you enjoy fairly good scenery, fresh air, walking or getting away from the crowds. Spring and autumn can get a little cold, so take additional clothing. How to get there: The Park is best reached by taking the chairlift from the back door of the Five Springs Park. You will see the chairlift from here. It takes about 20 minutes for the lift to complete the diagonal climb to the upper terminal. Foreigners are charged RMB20 for the ride up and RMB16 the ride down.

Opening hours: 8am-6pm daily.

Cost: RMB4.
