Luoyang

Luoyang, located in the mountainous western part of Henan boasts of rich natural tour resources ranging from famous mountains and beautiful lakes, pleasant hot springs and virgin forests. Characterized by landscape features of both north and south China, the charming scenic spots are a natural integration of grandness and elegance, majesty and beauty.

The Heluo Area centered by Luoyang, a city among the earliest approved Historical Cities of Culture by the State Department, is a significant birthplace of Chinese civilization. Luoyang has become an international metropolis since the Han and Wei Dynasties. With foreign ambassadors bringing tributes from all over the world in an endless stream, Luoyang reached its peak of prosperity in the Sui and Tang Dynasties with a population of one million. The notable ancient landscapes of the city include the Longmen Grottoes, Baima Temple, Luoyang Museum, Han Emperor Guangwu Mausoleum, House of a Thousand Epitaphs of the Tang Dynasty, Longmafutu Temple (the Map-carrying Dragon-Horse Temple), and the Former Residence of Wang Duo (a famous poet, calligrapher and painter during the period ranging from the end of the Ming Dynasty and the beginning of the Qing Dynasty).
