I've been to all the big-name grottoes in China and would rank this as one of the best. Don't go with a group; you need to be able to climb around and explore with some care in order to appreciate this magnificent place. You cannot just race through. It's worth the price of the admission ticket (45 Yuan) and is... More

Fei Lai Feng was more impressive than Lingyin Temple, IMHO. The history behind the carvings -- from how old they are to the fact that some carvings were damaged during the Cultural Revolution -- blew me away. You could spend a while observing all the intricate carvings. I was glad we were there in December so we weren't rushed or... More

On the way to Lingyin Temple you start seeing carvings of Buddha in the limestone cliffs. Then, you look up and realize they are carved in various locations along the mountainside and in the caves and continue up the paths as you climb up the hills. This area was fascinating and when you learn that many of these carvings were... More

I wanted to get to LingYin Temple, and the directions pointed me to here. So i paid 45RMB and in i go. The carvings were beautiful and interesting, and you could walk to some other smaller temples (which closes before 6 pm) whereas the infomation counter states 630pm. Then i found the entrance to Lingyin temple and still got to... More

There are many Buddhist statuses carved in the mountain and its caves. Very interesting to see if you are in Hangzhou. Fei Lai Feng (Peak Flown From Afar) grottoes are close to Lingyin Temple and their visit is included in the ticket price for the Lingyin Scenic Area.

Fei Lai Feng and Ling Yin temple are somehow connected to each other. Everything there is just so beautiful that there's no reason for you not to visit this place while in Hang zhou. Love the fresh air, love the temples...the scenery, the Buddhist statues... everything!

The Feilai Feng carvings are worth the ticket price. They are beautiful carvings that offer you some genuine surprises as you turn corners and are confronted with yet more masterpieces in the mountainside. In a town that is filled with good reproductions this is definitely one of the most impressive and authentic things to see. Even if you do not... More

It is nice to see those outdoor arts , cannot imagine how they carved those statues on this hill. The admission is 45 RMB, the hill is not too big, nice place to have some walk and enjoy those arts...
