Though not quite Dunhuang, the Dazu Stone Carvings (dazu shike) encompass more than 50,000 clifftop Buddhist sculptures, scattered at 75 sites throughout the region. Dating from the Tang and Song Dynasties, these fine examples of late-period Chinese grotto artwork have aged eerily well-some still glint with tinges of their original blue and gold pigments.

The best-preserved and largest collection of carvings can be seen at Holy Summit (baoding shan), 15km northeast of Dazu (this is where "the wheel of life" carving can be found in niche #3, this is the starting point on one side of the sculpture garden). Buses (Y2) from Dazu station lasve twice an hour until around 4pm and take 30 min for for the 16km run.

Dozens of tiny stone figures encircle a 31m-long statue of the reclining Sakyamuni, built in the Southern Song (1127-1279). A nearby temple is home to the magnificent gold-coated AvalolateSvara of a Thousand Hands-if in doubt, simply count the dazzling array of fingers and hands fanning out on the main temple wall.

The less well-preserved (but the main groupings are at) North Mountain (bei shan) contains older works from the late Tang Dynasty (AD 618-907) and the Sutrapitaka Cave.

The sculptures on the South Mountain (nan shan) are among the few Daoist relics in the region, revealing a rich history of contact between the two major Chinese traditions. 

Of the six largest sites scattered around the county seat of Dazu, two are most worth a visit - Bei Shan, completed in the late Tang dynasty (618-907); and Baoding Shan, started and completed in the Song dynasty (960-1279). If you have time or interest for only one, make it Baoding Shin.

Huangguoshu Falls

Tthis huge cascade of water is Guizhou's No 1 tourist attraction. Huangguoshu Village is home to the massive Huangguoshu Falls (Huangguoshu Da Pubu; Yellow Fruit Tree Falls; admission Y150), is closer to 6km in length and easily explored in an afternoon.

The thunder of the waterfalls can be heard fro some distance, and during the rainy season (May to October) the mist from the falls carries up to Huangguoshu Village. The falls are most spectacular about four days after heavy rains. The dry season lasts from November to April and during March and April the flow of water can become a trickle.

There are three entrances to the main falls: at the top of the cable car (Y50), next to Huangguoshu Binguan and just before Huangguoshu Village. Once inside, you can get up close to the falls, both by trapezing across a stone path over Rhinoceros Pool and by visiting Water Curtain Cave where, for an extra Y 10, you can walk through a tunnel behind the falls and view the water streaming past. During the rainy season, both of these explorations can turn into wades and prove treacherous. Good footwear and waterproof gear are necessary at any time of year.

There are a number of other waterfalls in the area that are included in the entry price for Huangguoshu Falls. One kilometre above the main falls and a couple of kilometres' walk north of town is Steep Slope Falls (Doupo Pubu), 105m wide and 23m high Eight kilometres below Huangguoshu Falls is the Star Bridge Scenic Area (Tianxing yiao Jingqu) known for its `potted landscape'.

Heading out of Huanggubshu buses for Anshun and Guiyang run regularly between 7am and 7pm. Buses for Xingyi leave in the morning.

Minibuses run the route between Longgong Caves and Anshun (Y20 per person). 


From Anshun, trains leave daily for Kunming (Y130, 11 hours, 8.44am and 6.27pm) but it's virtually impossible to get sleeper reservations and you might decide to head back to Guiyang. Four trains leave daily for Guiyang (Y7 to Y12, two hours), although the bus is more convenient.

A restored Ming-Dynasty Daoist temple, the Black Dragon Pool (hei long tan) is named for a legendary black dragon whose life was spared by a Daoist immortal in return for its promise to aid mankind.

Yunnan's Stone Forest (lunan shilin) lives up to its self-designated moniker as a "wonder of the world," with rock formations spiking up high above like redwoods or Scottish pines. Only the Big and Little Stone Forests portion is open to visitors. The forest is a gigantic labyrinth of jagged karst (limestone) pillars, some over 30m high, lashed and split by eons of ice and rain, and eroded to their present form. Formed more than 200 million years ago, some rocks were miraculously distorted into shapes that resemble "a 1000-year-old tortoise," "a baby elephant," or "a stone buffalo." Don't be frustrated if you can't see the resemblancesometimes a rock is just a rock. 

While the overcrowding characteristic of Yunnan's tourism sometimes plagues the forest, it's certainly possible to strike out and wander on your own. From the Sword Pool, turn right and go right at the next fork; you'll have to crouch a bit to enter this hidden path. From there, choose your own route to the top, where brilliant vistas await, undisturbed by the crowds that climb to the park's pavilion. Of course, for those wary of heights, the stairs and railings of the pavilion provide equally rewarding views for less effort.

After expending your energy on the climb up, head to the tea house in the rest area up the hill from the path that exits the pavilion. There, the local Yi  minority leads free tea tastings. At the tasting's conclusion, don't feel obligated to buy anything; the many fragrant teas are tempting, but their prices are not-even the cheapest go for over Y100 per kilogram. 

Naigu Stone Forest (Naigu Shilin Fengjingqu, admission Y50), is about 8km 8 km northeast from Shilin (it predates Shilin by about 2 million years). There you can find karst caves, a large waterfall and an impressive causeway of black, volcanic blocks. The easiest way to get there is to take a microbus from Shilin (Y15). Or catch a horse and a cart for Y15 from the main road outside the Stone Forest.

An airport coach between the airport and Hankou Railway Station departs when full; board near the airport entrance. The trip takes 1 hour and costs ¥25 ($3). Complimentary shuttle buses to the airport leave from the China Southern (Nanfang Hangkong Gongsi) office on Hangkong Lu (either side of the Ramada Plaza) 2 hours before their flights. Buses from the airport to town leave 1 to 2 hours after China Southern arrivals. The trip takes 30 minutes. A taxi to Hankou should be ¥50 to ¥70 ($6.25-$8.75), plus a ¥15 ($1.85) toll. Stand in the taxi queue and use the meter. Ignore independent drivers who will offer to drive you for hundreds of yuan. 

Wuhan has a number of railway stations, but the two major terminals are Hankou Huochezhan (mostly northbound) and Wuchang Huochezhan (mostly southbound).You can avoid the lenghty station queues by using agencies or the advance purchase office at the southern end of Xinhua Lu. At both stations, Y5 extra gets you into a smarter waiting room and out to the train earlier. Major connections from Wuchang Station are Beijing (T79/T80; 10 hr.; hard sleeper ¥280/$35); Guangzhou (2269/2270; 10 1/2 hr.; hard sleeper ¥280/$35); Kunming (K109/K110; 32 hr.; hard sleeper ¥320/$39); and Shanghai (K122/123; 19 hr.; hard sleeper ¥201/$25).

Tickets can be booked 3 days in advance at the respective stations. Hotels and CITS will book tickets for a ¥50 ($6.25) fee. 

The two main long-distance bus stations are the Hankou Changtu Qichezhan on Jiefang Da Dao at the Youyi Lu intersection (mostly northbound), and the Wuchang Changtu Qichezhan, northeast of the railway station on Wuluo Lu (mostly southbound). Buses for Shanghai leave from both stations (15 1/2 hr.; ¥360/$43). It's best to buy tickets a day in advance. 

The Yangzi ferry terminal is an unmissable white tiled building on Yangjiang Dadao in Hankou: the ticket office (027-828-39546, daily 8:30am-5:30pm) is downstairs at the north of the building. 

The newest addition to Wuhan's transport infrastructure is a light rail line that began operating at the end of 2004. It is currently exclusive to Hankou but is being extended to Wuchang. It runs along the old rail line on Jing-Han Da Dao, making stops every kilometer. It is operational between 6:30am and 9:30pm, and tickets cost ¥3 (40¢) 

Useful bus routes:

For sightseeing: Dian Zhuan (Electric Special) # 1, not to be confused with any other #1 bus or trolleybus - the characters for dian zhuan are displayed either side of the number. It runs from Yanhe Dadao in Hankou, via Hanyang and the Great Changjiang Bridge, and then links the Yellow Crane Tower with Changchun Guan and the provincial museum. Other useful buses are: #38, #503, #507 (45-90min) #595. 

Getting Around -- Standard taxi rates are ¥8 ($1) for 3km (2 miles), then ¥1.40 (20¢) for each additional kilometer up to 7km. Above 7km (4 1/3 miles), add 50% per kilometer.

Wuhan Trains 

If you are coming from or heading to Jiangxi province and further on to Anhui, Zhejiang and Shanghai, Hankou station is where your train will leave from and arrive at. 

To complicate matters even further, Wuchang and Hankou have a few railway stations. The major passenger station in Wuchang is south of the city center, known simply as "Wuchang Station" while the biggest station in Hankou is in the west of the town, known as "Hankou Station". A lot of public transportation will take you to the stations, but bear in mind the station names in case you mistake them with others. 

One thing to bear in mind about trains in and out of Wuhan is that the Yangtze River creates a divide many trains cannot cross. Often therefore, it is easier to cross the river by bus as many train journeys either involve a long and complicated route or are practically impossible. 

By Bus:

Transportation to Wuhan by bus is fairly convenient. New express routes have been constructed in the past year and destinations as far away as Nanjing and Shanghai can be reached on an overnight trip. In Hankou, the major station is on Jiefang da dao at the intersection of Youyi Lu. This is the biggest station in the city and buses to some northern cities leave and arrive from here. In Wuchang, the bus station is on Wu Luo Lu. Buses to some southern cities leave and arrive from here. Buses for Nanjing, Shanghai and Hefei leave from both stations. (Telephone: 8579-2424) 

By Boat:

Wuhan is situated along the edge of the Yangtze river, and there are now passenger ships between Wuhan and Shanghai and Wuhan and Chongqing. This is not however, a speedy means of transport. For instance, ships from Shanghai to Wuhan take 3 days, although the fare is pretty cheap, only around RMB150 for a hard sleeper. 

Boats are available daily between the aforementioned routes.

To Wudang Shan (武当山) 

The best times to visit are April through June and September through October, when the leaves turn as red as the gorgeous temple walls.

Getting There -- The train from Wuchang to Shiyan stops in Wudang Shan village at 5:30am (K782/783, K784/781; 7 hr.; hard sleeper ¥127/$15). Unless you're staying more than a few days, buy your return ticket as soon as you arrive. The return train leaves at 11pm each day (to Wuhan Y70, 7hr). Only hard-seat tickets are available at the ticket office but you can upgrade once on board.

Less convenient, buses from Wuhan go to Shiyan (11 hr.), where you transfer to a minibus to Wudang Shan. Buses wait for passengers in front

of the railway station and depart when full. The ride takes 30 to 45 minutes and costs ¥10 ($1.25). 

Wudangshan (used to be called Lao3ying1) is a small market town with the mountain range rising to the south of the town. It's about 120 km west of Xianfan, a transport hub on Hanshui River.

-Wudang Shan is on the railway line from Wuhan to Chongqing. Few trains stop and you may have to take a minibus to/from either Shi2yan4(十堰) (Y5, one hour) or Liu4li3ping2 (one hour); the former station has trains to Yichang and north into Shaanxi. There are daily trains from Xianfan (Y35, two hours).

-There are buses here until late afternoon and daily trains from Xiang1fan2 (襄樊), or you can leave transport 25km farther west at the city of Shiyan and catch a minibus back to Wudang Shan (Y10) from opposite Shiyan train station.

Taishan Miao (Y2) a small temple museum, look south into the backstreets beside the bus station, and you will see a road which passes under a railway arch; follow it down and on the left before the arch and you will find it (inside you can find illustrated medical scroll describing how the phases of the moon affect different organs). 

It is posible to hike from the town to the summit in about 8 hours - the footpath starts near the train station, past the bridge to the east (from there to the main temples and trail head is another 12km (7 miles). Most people catch one of the ubiquitous minibuses (Y10) to the roadhead 3/4 of the way up near Nanyang Gong (entrance fee around ¥130 (FM) Y75 (RG)). map of the area can be bouth at the park gates. Another option is to take a minibus to the cable car at Qiongtai (Y35 each way) which will take you to the summit..Best preserved from the Ming dynasty building boom is Wudang Shan's Zixiao Gong (Purple Mist Palace), located on Zhanqi Peak (below the cliff Taizi Yan). This large, still very active monastery was built in 1413. Its striking red halls often bustle with priests and pilgrims. The most dramatic of the existing temples, Nanyan Gong (Southern Cliff Palace), is built into the side of a sheer cliff, recalling Northern Heng Shan's Xuankong Si -- another Daoist temple that seems to defy gravity. 

There is a hostel (dorm beds Y25) just outside the temple gates on Tianzhu Peak (place run by daoist monks?). Taihe Gong offers very basic accommodations in their Daoist Association Hostel (Daojiao Xiehui Zhaodaisuo). The cost of ¥200 ($10) for two includes a room with twin beds, shared bathroom, and limited hot water. The Jinding Luguan, just below the Jin Dian, has comparable accommodations at similar rates. Both are clean and have restaurants. 

Dragon Head Rock, a two metre long slab sculptured with swirl and scales, which projects straight out over the void. 

It takes around 2 hours to walk from the hotel area to the top of Tainzhu Peak (Tian1zhu2 Fenf1, The heavenly Pillar peakthe highest peak, 1600m) along a comfortably paved path. Amost immediately you arrive at Lang mei Xian Ci, a small shrine dedicated to Zhang Sanfeng. The peak can be reached on foot in 2 1/2 hours up stone stairs. The views are magnificent. Save energy for the final very steep leg to the peak. Round-trip by sedan chair is ¥120 ($15). A cable car, which starts a short way up the mountain, goes to Taihe Si (near the peak). The 25-minute trip costs ¥70 ($5.65) one-way, ¥80 ($10) round-trip. 

Jin1ding3 Lu3guan3 695-0718, bed in d&tr Y44, with shared bathroom Y88, on Tianzhu Peak, just below the temple, bathroom and eating facilities are basic but there are fantastic views and chances to meet local monks. 

Bai3hui4 Shan1zhuang1 - 568-9191, tw Y88-120. Near Nanyan Temple, this is the best place to stay on the mountain. 

Jin1gui4 Da4jiu3dian4 (Jingui Hotel) the first building on the left, has clean, bright rooms. Ordianary rooms (pu3jian1) lack a bat but the owner will gladly let you enjoy the 24hr hot water in the private bath attached to standard room (biao1jian1), 568-9198, singles Y45, with bath Y80-Y100, doubles Y60-Y80.

The Huangshan area includes two famous world heritage sights - Mount Huangshan and Ancient Villages in Southern Anhui, Xidi and Hongcun. 

Mount Huangshan known as 'the loveliest mountain of China', was acclaimed through art and literature during a good part of Chinese history. Today it holds the same fascination for visitors, poets, painters and photographers who come on pilgrimage to the site, which is renowned for its magnificent scenery made up of many granite peaks and rocks emerging out of a sea of clouds. 

The two traditional villages of Xidi and Hongcun preserve to a remarkable extent the appearance of non-urban settlements of a type that largely disappeared or was transformed during the last century. Their street plan, their architecture and decoration, and the integration of houses with comprehensive water systems are unique to the area. 

Even the local cuisine of Huangshan is among the 8 most famous cuisines according to Chinese food culture.

Customer comments

Tihs hostel is absolutely beautiful- it has only just opened so there are still some teething issues being worked out - but the staff were lovely and the facilities amazing. i marked down location because it isn't downtown in the city hub - but its still in a really nice area - near street vendors and supermarkets. its about a 20 minute walk to the main shopping street or a 12-20ish RMB taxi ride (depending on what end of the street you go to) to the main drag. This place comes most highly reccommended with the nicest rooms I have seen for this price range.  

4 bed private CAD $14/night.
