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.

definitely a highlight of my trip - be prepared to walk hundreds (& hundreds of steps) - allow 3 or 4 or more hours - worth adding to your itinerary - so much history and amazing carvings (still in good condition)
