Package Itinerary

In the morning, you will meet the guide and driver at the lobby of your hotel, or at the railway station. We kindly suggest you arrive before 10:00 in the morning for the tour.

We will then head towards the Shaolin Temple in Dengfeng City. Hidden inside the forest of green pines and verdant cypresses on Song Mountain, Shaolin Temple is not only a prestigious Buddhist shrine in China, but also the birthplace of the Shaolin Kung Fu. Before entering the temple, our guide will give you a brief introduction about this magnificent Buddhist haven, after which you can explore and acquaint yourself with Buddhist culture. Afterwards we will accompany you to the Pagoda Forest - a place where countless eminent monks were laid after their death. Covering an area of 140,000 square meters (167,440 square yards), the Pagoda Forest near the Shaolin Temple has more than 200 towers in various shapes, some of them dating back to the Tang Dynasty (618-907). Later, we will enjoy a wonderful Shaolin Kung Fu show.

After that, we will drive back to Luoyang and take you to a world cultural heritage site - the Longmen Grottoes. Nestled inside the limestone cliffs alongside the river Luo, the Longmen Grottoes showcases a collection of man's finest work with nature - vivid Buddha sculptures and inscriptions with masterful calligraphy. Today, you can see 2,345 niches, more than 100,000 Buddha sculptures and over 2,800 carved steles on display inside the grottoes. Set against a stunning backdrop of the cliffs and the river, the Longmen Grottoes is a visual delight for people interested in Buddhist culture and Chinese traditional carving arts.

After the visit, we will escort you back to the hotel or railway station in Luoyang. We hope that you enjoy this wonderful trip.
