“Impressive buddhist statues carved in rocks”
Reviewed December 31, 2011

When visiting the Ling Yin temple complex, you have to go through the Fei Lai Feng area. And this area is actually more impressive than the temple complex. It's an amazing collection of buddhist statues carved in rocks dating back to the 10-14th century. The statues have weathered the time and are in very good shape
(or perhaps restored). They give a good overview of the different buddhist styles (from Indian to Chinese styled statues) and are scattered all over the place. You can also walk uphill to a peak (forgot the name) and there is a stream along the rocks.

“Must see! Bring your camera!”
Reviewed January 7, 2011

Beautiful carvings of 100's of Buddhas, including a laughing Buddha, gorgeous scenery, the stream running by it, everything is just beautiful! The audio tour needs a little work though, it tended to start talking before I got to the area it was describing, so I didn't fully catch everything.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed November 13, 2010

There are 300-400 ancient stone statues carved into the limestone cave and hillside, a really amazing historical treasure.

Translated as "Peak from Afar", this attraction is actually right next to the famous LingYin temple. Plan on at least 2 hours to visit both the temple and the cave.

“Not to be missed!”
Reviewed April 5, 2010

I'm amazed by the lack of reviews of Fei Lai Feng (Peak Flown From Afar) on TripAdvisor. IMHO, it is an attraction not to be missed when you are in Hangzhou. On this craggy mountain, there are numerous caves that shelter more than 300 statues dating from the 10th to 14th centuries. While most (if not all) of the statues have religious (Buddhist) meanings, they can also be seen as works of art. Among them, the largest statue of the smiling Maitreya Buddha is the best-preserved one of its kind and embodies the artistry of carving in the Song Dynasty.
