Worthwhile visit!
Jul 2018 • Family
Thousand Buddha Cliff is definitely worth the visit! It took us 20 minutes to get there from our downtown hotel which cost us approx. RMB22 using a DiDi. We entered from the South Gate which starts as a beautiful and peaceful park with tea houses and lovely gardens. This part is free of charge. Once you get to the end of this park there is a ticket office where you can purchase tickets to go beyond and inside the Thousand Buddha Cliff site. Tickets are approx. RMB50 per adult and RMB25 per child. Once inside the site there is a great little museum that you can visit which is very informative (and in English!) On the other side of that you’ll come to the Cliff which is just spectacular! The stairs up the Cliff are steep and narrow so remember to wear comfortable walking shoes. I’m not sure if I’d recommend the climb for young children though. My son is 7 years old and it was pretty challenging for him at times. After the climb (we were at the site/park for approx. 3 hours) we headed back the way we came and were able to get a DiDi back to our hotel with no problems. I did see some local buses waiting there too so that could also be an option if you’re after something cheaper.

Sublime Buddhist Caves

Just out of the city of modern bustling Guangyuan, this ancient Buddhist site is situated in a beautiful park beside the river. An easy couple of hours to visit and has some glorious carvings and niches full of enigmatic Buddhist art. Lots are damaged but there is enough, colourful, intact pieces to make this a very worthwhile and enjoyable visit. The park itself is quiet and beautifully landscaped, and has an interesting museum. A little gem

How did they do it?

the cliff is covered in statues and murals carved into the rock face. Done before modern tools is amazing and the boardwalk has great sites with the cliff on one side and the river on the other.

Stunning cliff

If you are in this area this place is a must to visit. Even though the ticket is a bit expensive (50yuan full price, 25 student ticket), it's worth it, if you like historical places. Many statues have been destroyed (or stolen) during the times, but there are still many left and it's really beautiful.

I think it's possible to see the whole thing within an hour, but I guess if you are really into these things you can definitely spend here at least 2 hours and you won't be bored.

It's easy to get there, I believe bus number 5 and 7 go there from the city center (2yuan)

surprise visit
Sep 2013 • Business
We were on a business trip and we finished a half a day early and our host wanted to do something special for us so they took us to visit the Thousand-Buddha Temple. Amazing piece of history that none of us knew existed. A very special treat for us from our Chinese hosts. This kind of action is what builds friendships between countries. To bad politicians ruin it all.

Able to get up close

Never would have happened if there was cable tv back then! One is able to climb the cliff face with the assistance of a narrow carved stair and pathway on cliff face and a low handrail. It is awesome to get up close and see the detail. Much of the paint is still intact.
