Shaolin Temple is located in the south of Luoyang and Zhengzhou, nestled in the foothills of Song Shan Mountain. Built 1,500 years ago, Shaolin Temple is considered the birthplace of Chan Buddism-cradle of Shaolin Kongfu. This article presents my 4 days and 3 nights' excursions including Shaolin Temple. I also have to mention the great outdoors performance in Dengfeng. The guide arranged this performance for us flexibly since the performance was originally excluded in our schedule.

In Dengfeng, there is a great Shaolin Kong fu performance with 3,000-seat stadium. The performance is supposed to take place every night at 8:00 Pm if the weather permits. The theatre is located in Daxian Valley, south suburb of Dengfeng City, and is 7km far from Shaolin temple. The main stage is a valley, and the mountains lie vertically, with clear marks of near, middle and far scenes. There are brooks, forests and bridges in the valley, all of which are factors forming the practical performance. We can sit on prayer mats around the brook in the wind, watch the water, hear the music of zen and appreciate the performance, with our mind eased and relaxed. This incredible performance is super exciting.

Day 01: Arrival in Zhengzhou

Upon arrival at Zhengzhou, one of the eight ancient cities in China, our tour guide will meet you and escort you to the hotel.

Day 02: Zhengzhou - Dengfeng

Today visit Yellow River Scenic Area, the best place to experience the culture of the Yellow River. And after lunch you will visit the Shaolin Temple. The Shaolin Temple is the birthplace of Chan Buddhism-cradle of Shaolin Kongfu. Taking a stroll through the temple, you are sure to learn more about Shaolin Kungfu while listening to the monks practicing in the yard. Tonight you will have an optional program to watch the Grand Music Ceremony.

Day 03: Dengfeng - Luoyang

After breakfast you will drive 1hour 40 minutes to Luoyang. The fist stop is to experience the famous scenic spot - Longmen Grottoes, more than 100,000 images and statues of Buddha and disciples carved into the face of the cliffs alongside the Yi River. Following lunch you will visit to the White Horse Temple (Baima Temple), which is located 12 km away from Luoyang City. White Horse Temple is the first Buddhist Temple in China and boasts great antique architecture which has remained intact. And then you will also visit the Guanlin Temple.

Day 04: Departure Luoyang

Today our tour guide will help you to leave Luoyang to your next destination.
