This is a functioning temple built in the 17th century, with many surprises, most of which (to us) were the monkeys running and hopping around. We took a bus up to the temple because the hike would have been very difficult with the winding roads. Once we had passed through a typical mountain forest where people were actually picnicking, we... More

This is a very nice functioning budist temple that is inside a protected mountainous area in the middle of the city. The temple itself is fairly old and in good (not excellent) condition. It's in the middle of a forest surrounded by mountains which acts as an additional element of mystique. The fact that it is not a museum but... More

We often visit Hong fu temple to eat lunch in the temple hall. The admission is 2yuan each (Tickets can be purchased in the little holes in the wall on the outside of the temple) For 10yuan each (Roughly £1), you are provided with various different vegetarian dishes, along with rice and fruit for desert. Do not expect a restaurant,... More

Great architecture amongst a collection of pavilions, Buddhist altars and small coi ponds. Hike up to the temple via the main stairway or take the cable car to the summit of the park and walk down via the staircase (10 mins from the cable car terminus).

We did not go inside the temple, people were burning incense and it was very smelly and heavy smoke.

There are two ways to reach the temple. Either walk up or take the chair lift up and walk down to the temple. We walked up and had a great time doing so with all the monkeys on the way. We carried an umbrella with us and the monkeys stayed away. When we went there were also some "monkey nannies,... More

The way to the temple is not easy as one have to climb the mountain with many steps, but the scenery and experience on the way is enjoyable. There are many wild monkeys in the mountain... More

The temple is situated in Qianling park and the combination of these two makes it the place to visit in Guiyang. We took the chairlift to the top of the mountain and had to go down quite a bit to the temple. No signs pointing you to the temple so we had to ask. Once you get there the temple... More

We had a lot of fun here, there are two moutains to climb up here. One is called White Elephant and the other has a temple at the top. I have never seen so many stairs in my life, the hike is very steep and quite long so bring water and consider this is an actual hike (not a walk)... More
