A very interesting group of temples built into the rock face.

A certain degree of fitness is required to climb the many steps to the temple, taking into account the altitude of 2600 m.

Absolute worth visiting and climbing all those steps! Just gorgeous. I was the only white person that day and the "caretaker of the temple" made sure I did see everything. He was my guide, showed me all the sights, made me ring the bell and...invited me for lunch. My Chinese friends and I enjoyed a tasty vegetarian lunch prepared in... More

We went here during the off peak season and were the only tourists on the morning we visited. The temple is a rather long uphill walk from the road but once there it is worth it. The views are spectacular and the temple(s) cut into the hillside truly beautiful. We were initially a bit cautious around the monkeys but after... More

While at first I have to admit I was slightly intimidated by the hundreds of stone steps and gangs of monkeys, the trip up was worth every effort. The lack of tourists, clear blue November sky, spotty clouds, bright sunlight and slight breeze infused with the scent of pine needles and temple incense all made for a truly ethereal experience....

This visit will take between 1 and 2 hours. After seeing a few hungry monkeys on the parking lot, you should be prepared to do some walking. I would not recommend this if you have small kids as walking to the first part of the temple will take about 30 mn. You will need to go up the mountain to... More

The Macaques are aggressive and will steal food, bags, in fact anything you're carrying if it looks edible! Take care and maybe desist from buying the peanuts and let them forage naturally.
