Lovely Temple
Jul 2020 • Couples
Lovely relaxed temple. Well maintained and beautiful. It's a lovely escape from the city. We went very early and were captivated by all the birds singing.

Xining Hanging Cliff Temple (Closed)
Jul 2020 • Solo
Strolling around Xining I thought of climbing up the Beichan Tuluo Temple. It is a vast (but relatively new) Taoist temple with many buildings amongst which the temple of heaven, earth and water gods. Unfortunately, the main attractions up in the cliff are closed (obviously due to rock slides). It is not sure when the gallery will be opened again - as there are no informations given anywhere (even the tourist information office inside the temple had no clue).

The taoist temple itself is certainly worth a visit, but don’t be disappointed if the stairs leading up the mountain are blocked with funny signs telling you about “no climbing”.

Closed for maintenance

We wanted to see the temple in the first week of November 2019, but it was closed. If you want to go, check if it’s reopened. It’s hard to find a taxi there to leave the place again.

You can visit the temples on the entrance, but the best part, the one builded on the mountain, it is close.

This site is quite nice however you cannot access the top and most of the temples are under repair. You ca still visit if you want but if you hace the option probably it’s better to go visit some other place. There is no entrance fee.

Just to mention that the place has been closed since October 2017. You can only take a picture of the 1st temple. We have been told that you cannot climb any more because of landslides.

Nice place. But the buildings on the cliff are not open to visitors
Jun 2018
Temple supposedly has a history of over 1900 years and is the second largest air-hanging temple in China. Only the buildings at the foot of the hills are opened to visitors when I was there and one can still take photos of the buildings on the cliff from there. One can also take about an hour's walk up the adjacent hills to visit buildings at the top e.g. stupa, and get a nice view of the city.

The place is about 15 min bus journey from Xining Railway Station, followed by a 10 min walk from the nearest bus stop..

Unfortunately under reconstruction
Aug 2017 • Solo
As it is said this temple is reffered to the 3rd century, and, probably it is oldiest and most interesting place in Xining. But unfortunately it was closed for the reconstruction on 10th of August 2017. God knows for how long.

Maybe the best panoramic view of Xining !
Jan 2016 • Solo
Ride bus No.10,11,19,21,66, or 107 to North Mountain Market (北山市场), and then walk north across the train rail and towards the hill you would see the temple and its flight of stairs to the top. We expected to pay 5元 but at the time of my visit no one asked to pay and we can't find any ticket booth so we just entered anyway. The temple ground is free and if you felt you have enough energy, climb the stairs to the top of the hills. At the moment of my visit it is closed for safety reasons. During my visit they put off-limit warning sign on the stairs towards the top but we ignore it anyway. Halfway through the climb you can see some of the sandstones crumbling and the place starts to look like an abandoned site. Continue to the top you can find small offering altar and a little pagoda, and you also will be rewarded with unobstructed panoramic view of the whole Xining. On a good day you can see clearly some 15-20 km out. For me the climb to the top of the hills is definitely a do not miss if you are visiting Xining !
