North Hill

Archaeological Site in Dazu Buddhist Caves

This site, originally a military camp, contains some of the region’s earliest carvings. The dark niches hold several hundred statues. Some are in poor condition, but it is still well worth a visit.

The pleasant, forested North Hill is about a 30-minute hike – including many steps – from Dàzú town; turn left out of the old bus station and keep asking the way. It’s ¥20 in a taxi.
