I hiked from the bottom of the mountain all the way up to Leidongping. The hike ended up being around 60km which was much longer than I saw advertised initially, but the hike's incredible scenery made up for it. On the way up I stayed...More

The temples and the giant golden Samantabhadra Bodhisattva on the top of the mountain were really fabulous, the scenery also breathtaking, the only thing that really bad was the environment, we can see litters everywhere.
