Tour description

Day 1: Arrive in Linfen
Our driver will wait for you at Linfen Bullet Train station holding a name board and waiting for you at the exit. And then take you to your booked hotel.

Day 2: Hukou Waterfalls, Wang’s Compound
You will be picked up at Linfen hotel after breakfast, then we will head for the first place Hukou Waterfall. Located 165 km to the west of Fenxi City, Hukou Waterfall is the second waterfall in China and the largest yellow waterfall. The scene can be overwhelming, water stirs up masses of smoke and clouds, with color turning from yellow to grey, grey to blue. The locals call this awesome scenery "smoke from river". Visitors not only can appreciate the waterfalls and take photos, but also can take rafts to make an exploration, taste Yellow River carps and Yan’an wines. After a short break, we will continue to visit Wang’s Compound. Wang's Compound is located in Jingsheng Town, Lingshi County, 35 kilometers (about 22 miles) from Pingyao Ancient City. The compound occupies a total area of 150,000 square meters, of which 45,000 square meters has been declares as a provincial protective cultural relic. It is not only an example of residential architecture, but also a museum of architectural art. Its sculptures of stone, wood and brick can be found everywhere in the courtyard. In the end, we will stay at hotel near Wang’s Compound.

Day 3: Pingyao Ancient City
We will visit Pingyao Ancient City after breakfast. Pingyao is China’s best-preserved ancient walled town. While other ancient cities in China will rustle together an unconvincing display of old city walls, sporadic temples or the occasional ragged alley thrust beneath an unsightly melange of white-tile architecture and greying apartment blocks, Pingyao has managed to keep its beguiling narrative largely intact: red-lantern–hung lanes set against night-time silhouettes of imposing town walls, elegant courtyard architecture, ancient towers poking into the north China sky, and an entire brood of creaking temples and old buildings. You will stay at hotel near Pingyao after a whole day excursion at Pingyao.

Day 4: Pingyao/Jin Temple
We will continue to visit Pingyao Ancient Town in the morning. And after lunch, we will head for Jinci. Jinci is the most prominent temple complex in Shanxi. It is located 16 miles southwest of Taiyuan at the foot of Xuanweng Mountain at the Jin Springs. It was founded about 1,400 years ago and expanded during the following centuries, resulting in a diverse collection of more than 100 sculptures, buildings, terraces, and bridges. The best known structure at Jinci is the Hall of the Holy Mother, which was constructed from 1023 to 1032 during the Song dynasty. It has carved wooden dragons coiled around the eight pillars that support its upward-curving double-eave roof. The complex includes a classical garden with a 3,000-year-old cypress dating from the Zhou Dynasty. You will stay at hotel i Taiyuan city.

Day 5: Taiyuan/Mount Wutai
You will be escorted from your hotel in Taiyuan, drive to Mount Wutai. It is one of the Four Sacred Mountains in Chinese Buddhism. As host to over 53 sacred monasteries, Mount Wutai is home to many of China's most important monasteries and temples. It was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009. It covers an area of 2,837 square kilometers (1,095.4 square miles), and its five main peaks, positioned east, south, west, north, and in the middle, embrace one another with broad and plain terraces rather than forests on their tops. The beautiful scenery here is a masterpiece of exquisite acts of nature, predominantly visible over the five main peaks: Wanghai Peak in the east, Guayue Peak in the west, Jinxiu Peak in the south, Yedou Peak in the north, and the central Cuiyan Peak. After a day hiking at the mountain, you will stay at the top of the mountain.

Day 6: Mount Wutai/Hanging Temple/Yungang Grottoes
Pick up at Mount Wutai, we will go to Datong, visit Hanging Temple and Yungang Grottoes. the Hanging Temple is one of the main tourist attractions and historical sites in the Datong 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. The structure is kept in place with oak crossbeams fitted into holes chiseled into the cliffs. After a short lunch break, we will continue to visit Yungang Grottoes. They are excellent examples of rock-cut architecture and one of the three most famous ancient Buddhist sculptural sites of China. The others are Longmen and Mogao. There are 53 major caves, along with 51,000 niches housing the same number of Buddha statues. Additionally, there are around 1,100 minor caves. A Ming Dynasty-era fort is still located on top of the cliff housing the Yungang Grottoes. The grottoes were excavated in the south face of a sandstone cliff about 2600 feet long and 30 to 60 feet high. In 2001, the Yungang Grottoes were made a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the end, you will stay at hotel in Datong city.

Day 7: Yanmen Pass
Pick up at Datong hotel, visit Yanmen Pass in the morning. Yanmen Pass is situated on Yanmen Mountain. The east side and the west side of the mountain face each other, and hence the whole mountain looks like a huge door. Yanmen Mountain was named for its door-alike shape, in which "Yanmen" means wild goose door in Chinese. The pass consists of a pass city, a barbican, and an enclosing wall. Yanmen Pass has become a popular tourist destination in Shanxi. After visiting of Yanmen Pass, you will be taken to Taiyuan airport, you will fly back to your home.
