your daily dose of spiritual food


trekking up the side of this mountain peak, one can feel the ancient energies all around you. as you ascend the face of the mountain, faces start appearing out of the rock. indeed, more than five hundred buddhas are said to have been carved in the stone, dating from around the 10th century on. even more impressive are the naturally occurring rock formations that take all kinds of shapes and forms. this is one rare, pure limestone mountain, more than two hundred meters tall. it is so unique among the common sandstone found in the area, that an indian monk named it fei lai feng, the ‘peak flown from afar’. it is said that the buddhas were carved to keep the mountain from flying off.
