This is truly ancient monument you must see in your lifetime. the site is exactly as you would imagine from pictures and info on the net. Beautiful view of the surrounding rivers and waterways. Quite a long but steady climb to the top which gives amazing views but I wouldn’t join the queue for the 9 bends walk as far too many tourists waiting for what will be a long walk/climb with just a few moments view. Two or three temples at the top near the Buddhas head which wee interesting. not good if you have anyone with you using a wheelchair!! far too steep ramps! others say you can pay by weichat next to the ticket office but I chose to pay at the main ticket foyer and thankfully I had cash as this was the only payment method available. Cny 80. read the history before you hi ax the guides are expensive but you will really enjoy this place.
