Great place for a day trip. You can escape from the busy city life of Ningbo and relax in the nature. It has many waterfalls, a nice hiking path, and a big golden Buddha statue. It is easy accessible by über, taxi or bus.

Joined a one day tour in Ningbo. Visited a few places that include Xuedou Mountain. The Buddha statue is big and magnificent. Said to be conferred 5th "must visit" mountain (??) soon. Worth a visit but take note there will be many steps to climb up the mountain. ..

There are two main parts. The giant buddha temple area and the long walk in the mountains. Arrive the night before. Start the morning in the temple part which is interesting and makes for some great photos. Also you can eat in the monks vegetables restaurant for 15rmb. Later head of for a walk through the mountains. You can expect... More

We came from shanghai to see this mountain area, it did not disappoint , we came with a Chinese speaker so she was able to translate and also speak to the person in the ticket office. The ticket system is very confusing , not only that but you need to get there early (we got there at 2.30 ) we... More

Great place but spoiled a little by lack of info in English, confusing ticket choices and bad maps to find your way around, despite this well worth a visit, better on a quit day

I have been visiting this mountain area for the last 10 years and it has transformed from an out-of-the-way, ancient Buddhist Temple and historic summer home of one of China's modern day historic leaders to a major tourist attraction. Chiang Kai Chek's family summer home is here and built on a promontory of the mountain, overlooking a very large mountain... More

I was shocked to see the size of Buddha statues when went into the temple. Based on what I was told this temple was built 1600 years ago. A must visit sight.

I truly enjoyed my time here last May. The scenery is breathtaking. The pathways are very well constructed. This history is tangible.

A mixed blessing. Not really set up for non-Chinese speaking foreigners so best to go with a Chinese friend or two. Most marvelous and little visited is at the farthest end of the park, but the bus will take you there and wait even an hour for you. Go very early in the morning to the beautiful waterfall at Xufuyan.... More
