We had the lucky pleasure of visiting here on the day of a Chinese state holiday, plus it was a weekend. Right there a double no go. Walking up to the main temple buildings you pass by the amazing carvings in the stone cliff face. It would be a great place to relax if it wasn't for the thousands of... More

We visited on a weekday when it was raining and there were no crowds. We found this place very magical, and unique in China (and we’ve traveled quite a bit here). First of all, the caves themselves are really cool. Some have little jagged crevices way up high with sunlight sneaking through. There are stalactites and fluttering bats, and it’s... More

There is so much to see in each little niche and cranny that I was afraid I would miss anything. The carvings are so beautiful. The crowds here were intense, so be prepared! Also, make sure to arrange for a return taxi as none just stop to pick up passengers. There is a public bus that cycles through town but... More

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.
