A great day out exploring this historical monument. I wouldn't suggest going a long way out of your way to get here, but if you're near Luoyang (or have been to the Shaolin Temple nearby) it's worth it.

When your looking in some of these caves you can see some of the original paint used. This will require a lot of walking and stair climibing. At the end of the tour there are many nick... More
