Kunming ( B, L )
Our tour guide will meet you and pick you up from your hotel. Then, you will visit the Qiongzhu Temple.
Qiongzhu Temple is located in the northwest suburbs of Kunming City, on the towering and continuous Yu’an Peaks where verdant old trees can be found every where and the peaks are always curled up by cloud and mist. The unique landscapes make the ancient temple become more attractive. It is said that Qiongzhu Temple was first built in the Tang Dynasty (618–907). In the Ming Dynasty (1368–1644), the temple was damaged by a fire, and was rebuilt with a larger scale than before at that time. During the Qing Dynasty (1644–1911), the temple was repaired for several times. Hence, most of the architectural complex is kept with Ming and Qing styles.
After that, move on to visit the Stone Forest. Kunming, the capital of Yunnan Province, enjoys great fame among tourists not only because the region features a consistently warm climate, but also thanks to its wonderful vistas and landscapes. Among the most dramatic of these attractions is the Stone Forest (Shilin), known since the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 A.D.) as the ‘First Wonder of the World.’ An old local saying says that ‘If you have visited Kunming without seeing the Stone Forest, you have wasted your time.’ Truly, the site is one of the most important attractions of Yunnan.
