It is about 2 hours drive from Luoyang and there is a daily direct bus service from Luoyang which cost just 20CNY per way. Take the bus from the bus station opposite Luoyang Train Station. The...

Xin'an is a beautiful county and It is quite easy to catch a bus from the Luoyang Bus station to the Canyon. It is nicely set up for families and there are a lot of things to do and see on your hike.

I would thoroughly recommend this place if you are in or around Luoyang. The scenery is amazing, especially when it is sunny and there are several activities which you can do on the way round, like obstacle courses (free) and archery (20 RMB). It is a very nice place to go for a paddle too, so bring appropriate footwear (although... More

The valley is located a two hour drive from Luoyang and our hotel hired a taxi for us for the day. It is a nice valley with lots of waterfalls, but when we visited the park (in July in the weekend) it was crowded with people. The nature reserve had enough small shops with food for a lunch.

I went there on an organized one-day trip from Luoyang. Normally I prefer to organize everything by myself, but in this case it was the right decision. The valley it's about 7,5km long and you need about 3 hours walking, if you take your time. Next time I would just stop more often and enjoy the marvelous rock structures and... More

Visited here as part of a private tour of Luo Yang. Imagine the canyon portion of Zion National Park in the US but with man made additions including dams, rock crossings, artificial waterfalls, and a ropes-type obstacle course. This is a great place to take the kids, although it is a long, two hour drive each way from Luo Yang... More

I've lived near Longtan for nearly 4 years, but have never visited. I have seen so many mountains etc throughout China that I thought it would be the same as the rest. My wife dragged me along so I somewhat reluctantly agreed, I'm glad I did! The valley, carved by water over time, is amazing. To reach the valley I... More
