Gravity Defying Hanging Monastery
5 DAYS CLASSIC SHANXI
Shanxi Province or 'Province West of the Mountain' as it would be known in English is located in the middle of the fertile Yellow River valley. The province flourished during the Tang Dynasty (618 - 907) due to the growing importance of the Yangzi basin along the Silk Road. Sadly, centuries of decline followed but, and in many parts due to UNESCO naming seven World Heritage Sites in the region (including the whole ancient town of Pingyao), Shanxi Province offers an amazingly well-preserved look into Buddhist history and Chinese architectural styles throughout the dynasties.
