Those photos remind me of my trip to the Songzanlin Monastery in Shangri-la. Those steps in the second photo will really take your breath away (leave you short winded). Of course, when I was there, Huang Yi was not. :(

It's a nice place to visit, but there was an ethnic Tibetan woman who got mad at me for taking her photo and I didn't pay her (I was actually interested in her Tibetan Mastiff dog!).

They don't let you take photos of the Buddha - the ones on wikipedia must have been taken without anyone watching them.

It looks like an amazing place. I'd be happy to run into Huang Yi in a 7-11. :D

A lot of places rely on tourism to earn income. I remember in Huangshan you were supposed to make an offering if you wanted to photograph the monk meditating in a cave.
