HANGZHOU - Arriving in the city of Hangzhou, we stop briefly at Felai Peak, or "The Peak that Flew Hither". Made of limestone, it differs from the surrounding mountains, leading to the legend that the mountain flew overnight from India, demonstrating the power of Buddhism. At the base of the peak are the Felai Feng Grottoes.
