Visiting: Datong  

Attractions: Yungang Grottoes, Hanging Temple

Today's Activities:

You will be picked up from your hotel by our English speaking tour guide and private vehicle in the morning. Visit the Yungang Grottoes. The three main sites in China that are famous for their stone sculpture are Dunhuang, Longmen and Yungang. Among these, the Yungang grottoes are considered number one among them, for their tremendous size, ancient history, and relatively complete state of preservation. Chinese lunch will be arranged close to the Grottoes.

After lunch you will drive to Hanging Temple. The temple stands at the foot of Mt. Hengshan, 5 kilometers (3 miles) south of Hunyuan County, and 65 kilometers (40 miles) from downtown Datong City. Since it hangs on the west cliff of Jinxia Gorge more than 50 meters above the ground, it is called Hanging Temple. How could a building like this withstand the winds and storms of so many years? Hanging Temple is an architectural wonder.
