No crowds which was fab after Beijing. A steep walk up a poorly kept road which a few in our group struggled with as the bus couldn't drive up. Renovations were in progress but it is out of season. Great views & picture opportunities.

Liked how it was a Tibetan style temple, not like the other temples in China. Architecture and style was interesting.

In late March 2007 I visited three of the 'Eight Outer Temples' in the Mountain Resort of Chengde which were done all in one day. Pule is the smallest and least known of the three we visited. We arrived after lunch on a very warm, sunny spring day. To get there in our CITS coach we drove up a single... More
