Full description
Visit the Hanging Temple, built into a cliff (40 meter or 131 feet above the ground) of Mt. Hengshan. It is the most famous scenic spot in the area. Built more than 1,500 years ago, this temple is notable not only for its location on a sheer precipice, but also because it is the only existing temple with the combination of three Chinese traditional religions: Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism. 

Learn how this temple was constructed in a unique way, only leaning on the precipitous mountain face and facing a deep valley. Seeing it from the distance you might even think that it is miraculously floating in mid air.

Explore Yungang Grottos in the afternoon. The grottoes are caved into the foot of the mountain, stretching about one kilometer from east to west. There are about 45 grottoes of different sizes and more than 51000 Buddhist carvings. It is one of the biggest grottoes in China! The Datong bus tour will pick you up from your hotel or railway station and drop you off at your hotel at the end of the tour. This group tour starts at 8 AM and finishes around 5-6 PM.
