We had no idea of this wonderful site when planning our trip to Xi'an to see the Terracotta Warriors. So glad we took the train to Luoyang. It was amazing. Spent a couple of hours touring the caves. If going in the summer, you will need water, sunscreen and hat. don't miss this!

History, art, nature. Perfect combination for me. Took public bus from the city.Spent the whole day @ Longmen mountain, wondering around, discovering new caves, new details, observing other visitors. Don't miss the tea garden. It's a perfect place to have a nice tea ceremony and quiet rest from the busy crowds.

Just amazing! A must see, when you are in Luoyang. Anyway you will see it, when you visit the Longmen Grottoes (it is included the ticket price).

This was my second time going to the Longmen Grottos. They are absolutely amazing. You need to be fit to experience all the grottos, there is a lot of walking up steep rock. The stairs are well organised but its arduous. You would struggle to enjoy this site in a wheel chair. Take water in the summer as this site... More

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.

The Longmen mountain with it's impressive grottoes is the very interesting and unusual place of the history of buddhist religion in China. 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
