Feilai Peak Picture

Feilai Peak stands in front of Lingyin Temple

Feilai Peak stands in front of Lingyin Temple. With a height of 209m, Feilai Peak differs dramatically from the surrounding mountains in its composition of pure limestone while the surrounding mountains are of sandstone. Many grotesque stones in the shapes of a charming dragon, a prostrate tiger, a walking elephant, and a scared ape are scattered about the mountainside. Their unusual colors make this mountain distinctive among the nearby hills and mountains.

Feilai Peak is so dissimilar from other hills near West Lake that there is no doubt that it truly is a foreign guest to the landscape. Many of these stone statues are quite unique and have unparalleled values in the art history, so they represent the highest level of stone carving grottoes in South of China.
