This was an interesting visit where you learn quite a lot about the ancient Chine culture. We loved all the antidotes and stories about past lifes and believes.

The 2000-year-old Ghost City of Fengdu is located on the Ming Mountain along the Yangtze River and the last stop on an upstream Yangtze River Cruise. A visit to the three temples at the top of the hill involves about 700 steps and a lengthy...More

Beware, lots of steps, over 400 so you need to be mobile. Very interesting place and explained in great details by our informative guide.

There is a need to walk up the slope and steps to get to the temple. The history behind the statues are colourful, and it would be advantageous if you can get a guide to explain.

lots of stairs but pretty easy to walk... very interesting with lovely gardens, pagodas and displays... the punishment displays are pretty graphic in a cartoonish way

I enjoyed this excursion from Yangtze cruise. But it is quite a climb so you must possess at least average fitness.

The main attraction for me was at the top of the steep hill. The ghost emperor's torture chamber and temple is unlike most other temples you will see all over China. Long walk up and on a hot day not easy.

Not too sure if climbing up all those steps in the pouring rain was worth it. It might be strange for westerners to understand the Chinese view of passing the different stages of "judgement" and Hell. The scary figures are not for kids.
