This is an amazing place with pagodas built inside the mountain. Be aware though, there are a huge number of steep steps, but for those able to make the climb, the experience is worth it.

Pretty cool temple, this was our first stop and I’d definitely recommend! There’s the main path to the top through a cave, which I definitely recommend doing! There’s another path that looks like it’s closed to visitors, but you can go to it through the...More

Consists of three pagodas, each one on a different level ascending a karst mountain. To reach the second level you climb a set of stairs. To reach the third level, you go through a huge cave lit by lights and then climb some more stairs....More
