Bamboo Temple(筇竹寺)

The Bamboo Temple in the hills west of town has one of the largest and best maintained collections of arhat figurines anywhere in China, stored in a memorial hall on the peaceful temple grounds. Arhats are beings who have attained nirvana. Once every Buddhist temple in the country had arhat figurines, but now only a handful can boast of 500 well-preserved statuettes like the Bamboo Temple.

Day Trips to the Kunming Countryside

The countryside outside of Kunming is quite beautiful; some of the best trips are out to Dian Lake (Dianchi) west of the city and the Stone Forest (Shilin), a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Stone Forest is an amazing tableau of upthrusted karst formations, brightly colored lakes and forested highlands. The site sees more than 3 million visitors a year and is Kunming’s most expensive attraction. Dianchi was once a playground for kings, but the lake has suffered a lot in the last 10 years of development. Recent efforts to create a bike-only green beltway around the park will help keep the scenic lake beautiful for the ever-growing number of urban tourists.
