Erling Tower is situated on Mount Erling, near Dongqian Lake. It is a nationally-protected cultural heritage site.

Erling Tower is a seven - tiered square tower constructed with locally - mined stone, measuring nine meters in height. Its center is hollow. The Sumeru Throne - style stone base has a height of one meter. Each story has a "waist eave" with perforated corners, through which wind chimes could be attached.

Having stood on the shores of Dongqian Lake for nine hundred years, Erling Tower adds a charming touch to the landscape's natural beauty. Sunset at Erling Tower is one of the ten must - see sights of Dongqian Lake and the only one that has remained unchanged throughout the centuries.
