We really enjoyed the visit. Great guide and wonderful places to see. We really suggest Nancy. Thank you.
With no direct buses and English-speaking taxis as rare as hen’s teeth, a tour is by far the easiest way to experience Datong’s UNESCO-listed Yungang Grottoes and Hengshan Hanging Temple, particularly given the distances involved. Explore these historic religious sites at your own pace, with the insights of a local guide, on this private guided transfer.
Meet your guide at your hotel or Datong railway station for the 37-mile (60-kilometer) drive to the Yungang Grottoes. The 254 grottoes and 51,000 stone sculptures here date back to the fifth century AD and are considered the pinnacle of Chinese Buddhist artwork—a status that has earned them a UNESCO World Heritage listing.
Continue to the Hengshan Hanging Temple, built into the cliffs of Mount Heng over 1400 years ago. Besides its elaborate design, the temple combines elements of three religions: Taoism, Buddhism, and Confucianism. Once you’re done exploring, enjoy transfer back to your hotel or the railway station.
