Very impressive rock carvings. Thousands of Buddhas.... Could relate some of the carving styles to those seen in India. Authorities have made the place congestion free by stopping private vehicles 2 kms before the site and have arranged battery operated carts to take visitors to the site. The 400 year old arch bridge is also impressive.

Many artificial grottoes were digged in the mountain by order of Chinese Imperor family members and other honorable people. The huge stone statures of Buddhas exhibit the beauty of ancient chinese art and skill of artists. There are... More

I do love the scenery of Longmen mountain especially with the river gives you lovely breeze and the boat rides, but be careful once you on the boat ride, make sure that they go back to the Buddha statues or the mountain. The Buddhas in the caves are gorgeous especially the ones with lots of steps. Disabled people need attention... More

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.

A beautiful day in Luoyang during the International Peony Festival. Take an English-speaking guide and walk/climb to see the grottoes and Buddhas, then walk across the bridge over the YI River to the ferry back down the river.

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.
