After lunch we will start heading towards the famous Shaolin Temple (approx. 2.5 hours drive) that is known for Shaolin Kung Fu. You will have a chance to witness the real Kung Fu performed by Shaolin monks. Shaolin Temple is famous not only as one of China's most important Buddhist temples but also as the center of Chinese Kung Fu.

Now Shaolin Temple is reputed as "the Number One Temple under Heaven" that is also listed as UNESCO World Cultural & Natural Heritage in 2010 as part of the "Historic Monuments of Dengfeng". The temple is the cradle of the Chinese Zen Buddhism and the Shaolin martial arts.

Visiting the grottoes was good but the Shaolin was a bit let down. Too commercial, felt like disneyland. The tour guide was good as she introduced us to a local restaurant for lunch.
