Day 2 Dengfeng - Luoyang (B, L)

After breakfast, you will drive 1.5hrs to Shaolin Temple, the birthplace of Zen Buddhism and the cradle of Kung Fu. You will visit the grandiose temples and halls, admire stone carving art, learn about Buddhism culture, and observe the daily living and meditation of monks in the temple. Don't miss the famous Pagoda Forest, the existing largest pagoda forest in China. When an important monk passed away, their cremains or skeleton would be put into the underground palace, and a pagoda will be built on it. The pagoda's height, size and number of layers will be decided according to the monk's Buddhism knowledge, reputation and merits and virtues during his lifetime. You will also enjoy a magnificent Kung Fu Show in Shaolin Wushu Hall which is performed by martial monks of Shaolin Temple.

Then, you will be taken to join in a Kung Fu Training Program (about 2 hours) in one of the most popular Shaolin Kung Fu Schools in Dengfeng City. You will be taught to acquire some real Shaolin Kung Fu skills by a professional Kung Fu teacher. The eventual kind of Emei Kung Fu is flexible, according to your interest and time. Your Kung Fu teacher will demonstrate the complete movements of Emei Kung Fu skills, then split the movements into pieces and instruct you to acquire each movement.

After Kung Fu class, your tour guide will take you to enjoy a leisure stroll to watch how the long-term students practice Kung Fu in the school.

Useful tips: 1) Kung Fu training program can be tailor-made according to your date and interest; 2) sportswear is necessary and not provided by Kung Fu school.
