About this activity
You will be picked up from your hotel in Datong or railway station at 9:00 am in the morning and transferred to the Yungang Grottoes (approx. 60 km). The Yungang Grottos, one of the three leading grottoes in China, is located in the south of Wuzhou Mountain. There are 254 grottos and 51,000 stone sculptures representing the highest level of world carving art in the fifth century and considered the peak of the Chinese Buddhism artwork.
If you would like to stop by for lunch, your guide can give you some lunch recommendations at your own expense. After lunch continue to the Hanging Temple in the early afternoon. The Hanging Temple was first built 1400 years ago in the Northern Wei Dynasty and rebuilt in the Tang, Jin, Ming and Qing Dynasties. This temple is unique not only for its constructional techniques and elaborate design, but also because it combines different concept of Buddhism, Daoism and Confucianism. After visiting the Hanging Temple for about 2 hours, you will be transferred back to your hotel.

This was the highlight of my trip to Datong! I came here during a Chinese National Holiday weekend and so it was extra busy. Viator connected me with Nancy beforehand and she recommended that I start earlier than the normal start time in order to manage with the crowds. Star was a very knowledgeable and experienced guide. The driver was also very good. I really enjoyed my day tour and my experience on this trip. The hanging temple and the yungang grottoes are really special places and I'm so happy to have the chance to experience them.
