Binglingsi Grottoes

A major ferry on the Yellow river in the past, Binglingsi in the southwest of Lanzhou can be reached after a 75 km drive by car and then by boat. It was here the trade caravans going westward crossed the river in ancient times.

The Binglingsi Grottoes are cut on steep cliffs along the Yellow River, about 2 km long in a honeycomb pattern. There are now nearly 800 sculptures in stone, clay and clay-covered stone and 900 sq. m of murals preserved in 183 cases. These sculptures can be dated back over 1,600 years.

Opening hours: 9:30-17:00
