What to see & do
Hanging Temple - The Hanging Temple, also known as the Hanging Monastery or Xuangkong Temple, is exactly as the name entails: a hanging temple. It is a temple built over 1,500 years ago on a cliff at about 246 ft (75 m) above ground near Mount Heng in Hunyuan County, Shanxi Province. The nearest city is 64.23 kilometres to the northwest, the prefecture-level city of Datong. Aside from its unusual location, the temple is also notable for being the only existing temple with a combination of three traditional Chinese religions: Confucianism, Buddhism, and Taoism. It is said that the original temple was constructed by only one man, a monk by the name of Liao Ran. Several repairs and extensions have been made to the structure over the years.
Hukou Waterfall - The Hukai Waterfall is the largest waterfall on the Yellow River and is the second largest waterfall in China. The waterfall is situated at the intersection of Shanxi Province and Shaanxi Province. The nearest city is YiChuan, 50 kilometres to the west. The waterfall has a height of over 20 m (66 ft), but the width changes with the season, usually between 30 m (98 ft) or 50 m (164 ft) wide. There is an enormous rock in the middle of the river wherein the water flow divides to two sides of the rock and then reconverges.
Sakyamuni Pagoda of Fogong Temple - The Pagoda of Fogong Temple is a wooden Chinese pagoda in Ying County, Shanxi province. The pagoda was built in 1056, during the Khitan-led Liao Dynasty, by Emperor Daozong of Liao. The pagoda is situated on a 4 m tall stone platform and has a total height of 220.83 ft (67.31 m).
