Luyashan Mountain. Hanging coffins (石门悬棺 - Shíménxuánguān).Our next stop was the valley where all the interesting things: temples, trails and even coffins – are all located on the steep slopes of the mountains. China Daily was taking care of all the entrance tickets, but I managed to find out that the fee for one person was 25 yuan (for the coffins and temple) and 30 yuan (for the path through the rocks along the cliffs, where we did not go).
A short walk through the valley from the Small Hanging Temple is another attraction, the hanging coffins. For the first time in China, they were discovered 1,000 years ago, and since then they have remained a mystery to archaeologists. Similar large-scale burial sites are found in China's southwest in the Sichuan and Yunnan provinces. And also to the north from there, in the province of Hubei, in the area of the Three Gorges hydroelectric power station, on the cliffs along the Yangtze River. It is believed that this method of burial was popular among the people of Bo. In Gongxian County (珙县 - Gǒngxiàn) of the Yibin City District (宜宾 - Yíbīn) of the Sichuan province, they found 280 hanging coffins, fixed to a height of 10 to 130 meters.
The age of the coffins found in different parts of the country varies from 400 to 2500 years.
