    ... a brilliant first stop for both sites but inside the city walls there was plenty to visit as well as some delicious food.

    ... beams looks majestic and fragile at the same time, appearing as if it could slide down the mountain side at any moment. The wooden stilts that appear to be holding the monastery aren't really functional and wobble on movement as you pass (and despite knowing they are not functional, the wobble still induces anxiety).

    ... Caves zijn 45 grotten vol met Boeddha's en kunst die daarmee te maken heeft. Heel bijzonder om dat te zien, hoe dat vroeger in de grotten is gemaakt. Zeker de moeite waard om te bezoeken maar eerlijk gezegd na een grot of 20-25 ziet wel alles er hetzelfde uit. Volgende stop: Hanging Monastery. Hanging Monastery is (ook) een Boeddhistische tempel, wat het bijzonder maakt is dat het gebouwd is in een berg. Neem een kijkje op de foto's, de tempel leunt ...
