Lonely Mountain: the tranquil ginkgo forest

Ginkgo trees in the Lonely Mountain are generally in the cloudy area in the Lonely Mountain. From the Fanghe Pavilion at back of the lonely Mountain, you can see the Jingyi School, which has about 10 Ginkgo trees.

When the leaves fall and fill the entire platform, you can photograph this uncopiable beauty.

Wuyun Mountain: the king of Millennium Ginkgo tree

There are 8 ancient trees over 1000 years old around the West Lake. The oldest one is the “Ginkgo King” that grows on the top of Wuyun Mountain. Because it has witnessed the vicissitudes of life in Hangzhou for more than 1400 years, many people who come to the top of Wuyun Mountain like to make a wish under this old tree silently.
