  • It was a nice walk up with properly built stairs but require a fair bit of stamina and energy. However, one can opt for cable car after a fair bit of walk to go up to the temple. 
  • It is a place that has any number of temples, is inspired by Taoism and has representations of the Moon Goddess, Dios Sol, Dios of irrigation, the water God... etc. Here we learned that the Dragon in China Launches water and not fire, that is on the roofs of the houses to keep away the fire and care that you do not burn. It is very beautiful and architecture that has is phenomenal, besides temples are surrounded by nature. There are some temples one can see that it was inspiration for Kung Fu Panda. In addition one can see a part delmsistema of irrigation that created, unique in the world. Totally recommended!

  • Cable car helps to get part way, but then lots of steps await before reaching the temples at the top of the mountain. There is a boat ride across a lake and some shops selling various crafts.
