The carvings of the Buddhas in the hill were amazing...we were told there are approximately 300 left, but there were 500 at one time. If we had had more time here we would have hiked the trails on this hill all day...very cool.

shouldnt be a problem because I dont see any security around the vicinity. There are alot of nice landscapes around. But I think we should be respectful and not fly the drones within the temples.
