Santai Pavilion

in Hangzhou

This pavilion was a popular feature in Ming dynasty (1368–1644) paintings of West Lake. Located at the top of Santai Hill, in the West Lake Scenic Area, a hiking trail, which is accessible from Santaishan Lu, takes you via the pavilion through forests and into tea plantations, emerging either near the China National Tea Museum on Longjing Lu or at Yanxia Cave further southwest.
