The gondola ride to the top is super cool, with amazing views. Lots of great walking tracks in the area if you have time. Be warned this can be crazy busy! Top Tip: book a glass bottom gondola for the return trip and skip the long wait.


A truly beautiful place to see in person! The history and culture here are amazing. There are a lot of stairs so be prepared for a nice hike up but I promise it is extremely worth it!


This place is a purest form of peace. The place up there is so sacred that you feel you are on top of the world. The breeze at the top touches you and makes you feel like you free from everything. The view is ultimate from the top.


Good local food in the temple. Recommend to buy the package deal with entrance ticket. A nice mini hiking place. Nice weather and convenient to come by cable car.


If you have energy, pls go, lots of step to examine your knees, just kidding, nice and respected Buddha! I did not go up because of very hot weather and high temperatures in June. Just had a bowl of iced tofu dessert in small shop.
