Enjoying the beautiful reputation of one of the Tens Scenes of The West Lake in Hangzhou travel, Jade Emperor Hill excellently stands between The West Lake and Qiantang River. In the Ming Dynasty, the present name, Jade Emperor Hill, was given due to the establishment of the Taoist Temple and the shrine of Jade Emperor. In the late Qing Dynasty, Jade Emperor Hill became one of the critical Taoist Temples at The West Lake. From the top of the hill, tourists have the privilege to devour the beautiful view of the hill-bordering The West Lake and the peaceful Qiantang River. In the meantime, tourists can have a delightful rest in the pavilion, Ascend the Cloud. If travelers keep climbing up the pavilion, there are major attractions, such as Purple Source Cave, Eight Trigrams Field and Seven-Star Pavilion, waiting for tourists along the path. Purple Source Cave is one of the “seven ancient caves of The West Lake” and Eight Trigrams Field is visible from the garden in front of the cave in Purple Source Cave. When tourists climb up, the clouds will scurry past the feet and it’s the origin of the reputation of “Clouds Scurrying over Jade Emperor Hill”.
