This is one of the landmarks in Luoyang. It would be more impressive if the statues hadn't been damaged but this is a part of history and it is also interesting to see what happened. I've been twice and might come back again. If you...More

A must visit here. Amazing place and breath taking. Lots of stairs to climb so bring plenty of water for a hot day. The whole trip will take around 3 hours.

The parking lot for this attraction is not that close, pay the 20 RPM return price regardless of the time of year. The buggy takes you past a few small businesses and then over the Li River. You walk through the grounds and back over...More

Beautiful setting along the river of amazing buddhas that have withstood weathering and vandalism during the cultural revolution. Took a cab out and back, not too expensive.

Me and two friends decided to go to Luoyang for two days. The Grottoes was the highlight of this stay. For 100RMB per person you got to do a lot (see the caves, visit a temple, etc.). It is also close to the high speed...More

Among the attractions in Henan, this was the only place I didn't enjoy as you will see the same thing throughout. Unless you are interested in the history of the stolen statues, this was a place I will not choose to go if I would...More

Wow ! RMB1000 is way too expensive. From Longmen HighSpeed Train Station, we paid RMB3 each to get to the Longmen Grottoes (outside as no vehicles allowed inside). You need to walk about 500M to get to the ticket... More
