So much to see, to marvel at. The nature, the mountains and fog. The temples. The labourers, the monks and nuns. And all the Chinese tourists thrilled to be at this sacred Buddhist sight. It is a hubbub of tourist shops, magical scenery, somber worship and ancient rites. We stayed at Shangketang Hotel, a Buddhist-run hotel. It was wonderful: the... More

That is the best place where I have been in China. The Nature, the sky the clouds all around. Long trip be prepared, take some water with You. Length of the trip 4-5hours but actually much longer up to 6-7hrs
