Hangzhou Adventure Experiences

Nestled in a valley near West Lake on the west fringes of Hangzhou, Amanfayun is surrounded by ancient temples, bamboo forests and terraced tea fields, a world away from urban life. Discoveries await throughout the peaceful resort as well as the region beyond, whether it is a morning prayer session with Buddhist monks, a soothing nature walk or a visit to a neighbouring tea plantation


At its most peaceful in the early mornings, west lake is an idyllic refuge dotted with bridges, pagodas, islands and gardens
