It t. Is about the view from the bridge

It is about the spectacular view of the Longmen grotto from the bridge. There is nothing unique about the bridge itself. The rating is for the view.

Since you are already visiting the Longmen Grottoes walk to the end of the Grottoes and cross this bridge for some spectacular photos of the Grottoes, if you continue to the other side of the river and walk a little bit further you get some spectacular photos as well.

This is just an average bridge compared to everything else around the area. It does offer nice views of the Yi river and grottoes. There are some carvings along the bridge

Nothing but a bridge. But is good looking. You will need to cross it for entering the Longmen Grottoes complex.

Situated on the Yihe River, new construction, beautiful to stand on the bridge looking back to see the whole view of The Caves & capture nice view of sunset. You can take pictures of both sides of the banks with so, so romantic view of the willows along with the breeze. I shall come back again .....

Stroll across the Longmen Bridge to get from the West side to the East Side. Longmen Caves are AMAZING! ... and don't forget the East Side where u can climb up to the temple - wear good walking shoes as there are hundreds steps to encounter!

The special thing about this bridge is its at the end of Longmen grotto. The entire site has a lot of history 3000 years worth. once you cross the bridge and are on the other side you can get some great shots of the grotto. as you walk back and this is a long walk there is a nice tea... More

Let's not get overly excited here people. It's just a bridge. It's sturdy, will take you from point a to point b even though there's a river between. But it's just that as well nothing more, nothing less. Walk past the grottos then take the little bridge over, walk along the river and come back to the original side of... More

Longmen Bridge is an stone arch bridge which crosses the Yihe River. You will get scenic view of this beautiful bridge when you stroll along the riverfront during your visit to Longmen Grottoes. Good photo opportunities.
