The best time to go to this site is October/November, as the crowds are a bit thinner and you can see it all. The best grouping is the central one as the statues are enormous and well preserved. Unfortunately some of the others have been...More

You should definitely visit it if you’re nearby (Xi’an or Zhengzhou). It’s quite interesting. West side is unique while the East side is unfortunately not as much.
Tickets don’t include the bus drive. You should definitely get the drive as it is a long walk.
