An amazing view on either side to Yi River in the central Chinese State of Henan. Longmen Grottoes are one of the best examples of rock cut Buddhist caves anywhere in the world. Dating back to 5th Century AD, Longmen Grottoes are an outstanding example...More

It was an amazing historical trail, my children loved it! The carvings on the cave walls were intricate and I could not imagine how they did this with minimal and non sophisticated tools during those time. The surroundings are peaceful and the lake is just...More
