About
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. Please note: tour excludes entrance fees.

What to expect

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.

Amazing Place to Visit!!
Nov 2019
I had a wonderful time with the guide Nancy during my 2.5 days in Datong. She arranged everything and had suggestions on where to stay and where to eat. She was flexible - when the Hanging Temple was closed due to excessive winds, she took me to see the Ying Xian Wooden Pagoda, Fogong Temple. It was snowing and she adjusted the schedule to still see as much as possible in my short time. She was also extremely knowledgeable and a great guide through the sites of Datong and the surrounding area. I wholeheartedly recommend this tour!!!
