head to the foot of Baoshu Hill( Precious Stone Hill). Situated on the north bank of the West Lake, Precious Stone Hill is over 200 meters (656 feet) high. Its scenic feature is many red rocks spreading all over the slopes of the hill, which sparkle like diamonds inlaid in the rosy morning or evening sunlight. This is how the name of the hill is given.The hill is not high, only taking you about 30-40 minutes to reach the top. There you can have a panoramic view of West Lake. On top of the hill, erected Baoshu Pagoda in Northern Song Dynasty. It is one of the outstanding landmarks around the lake. The whole pagoda is 45 metres tall and constructed into octagonal. Looking from afar, Baochu Pagoda is creating an incredible peace and leisure atmosphere with lush trees, blue sky and still lake. Originally builtin 963 AD, the construction of Baochu Pagoda was presided by Wu Yanshaung, uncle of the king of Wuyue kingdom, to place sarira of Master Shandao,a eminent monk in the Tang Dynasty. It is now a solid pagoda with 6 sides and seven floors, 45 meters high. Like a slim beauty, it stands on the hill, just a backgroud for the "Broken Bridge".

It is the lowest summit, compared to other hills around West Lake, but it is also the biggest island in the lake, and the only natural island as well.Solitary Hill Island is home to several ancient relics, including imperial palaces in the successive dynasties from the Southern Song to Qing Dynasty periods.

It was known as one of the three Taoist temples at West Lake in the late Qing Dynasty.From the top of the hill, you can have a bird eye's view of the lake and city and devour the beautiful view of the hills circled West Lake and the peaceful Qiantang River.
