The Long Men grottoes are the main attraction in Luoyang and stretch on both sides of the river, although there are about 10 major ones on the main bank. Very impressive. Follow with a visit to the Luoyang museum. Warning: a lot of steps.

Nature, history, art all at the same place. You caneasily spend half to a full day here. It is better that you carry some food and water. However, if you are okay with local simple food, noodles etc. you will find a lot of choices.
