One of the most remote Buddhist temples on earth. Mount Fanjing, China

Mount Fanjing rising more than 100 meters above the surrounding landscape, visitors will need to climb almost 9,000 steps to reach the summit. The buildings perched at the top are two Buddhist temples—the Temple of the Buddha and the Temple of Maitreya—linked by a small footbridge.

Located in Tongren, Guizhou province, southeastern China, the highest peak of the Wuling Mountains, at 2570 metres (8,430 feet).
