Maiji Mountain Grottes for Visit and explore the buddhist artwork and statues in the caves.

These grottoes were started to be built around 16oo years ago. It quite incredible to think the caves were hacked from a cliff face so far above the ground, with all the sculptures developed inside the cave rock itself. Not every caves are opened to the public but there are enough to explore to pass at least a couple of hours. There are guided tours available but only in Chinese, as this place is not visited by too many foreign travellers.

Where I stayed / started
