Shibao Mountain is a scattering of spiritual sites, shrines and temples that has served as a place of worship and spirited, spiritual discussion for centuries. The buildings are in good shape and the complex is large enough to easily take up an entire day. Notable sites include statues of Indian sages along the climb up to the temple complex and a Yoni Shrine, a cleft in the Cliffside that bears a striking resemblance to the holiest of holies and enjoys a constant flow of cool mountain water. Drive back to Shaxi in the afternoon.
