I highly recommend visiting the Longmont Grottoes in the ancient capital city of Luoyang in Henan Province. There are thousands of statues carved out within the mountainside. It is a picturesque setting along the Yihe River.

A must to see. Make sure you have sunscreen and hat. As we were foreigners, the school groups all wanted to have our pictures taken with them. A lot of fun.

Visiting the grottoes is pretty tiring, there are many stairs and on the day we visited (first of May) it was incredibly hot, so I wouldn't suggest it to elder travellers. But overall it was worth it, the grottoes are spectacular. Moreover, included in the...More

Can i get battery car or boat from the entrance along the walk? Hi! I plan to visit there in September with my family. My parents are quite aged and have difficulty in walking for long distance. I'd like to know whether we can get battery escort along and make a multiple stop at the scenic spot? Or can we get on the boat from the entrance and get back at the same spot? Thanks Jan
