At CK Martial Hearts, the first question we are usually asked is “Where do you hold your Shaolin bootcamps?”
And after telling people we hold our bootcamps at the genuine Shaolin Temple, the next question is often “Where is the Shaolin Temple”?
Hopefully these guides will help answer those questions as clearly as possible.

Where is the Shaolin Temple – Our route to Shaolin
Located in Dengfeng, Henan Province, at the bottom of the Song Shan Mountain range, the Shaolin Temple, where our bootcamps take place, isn’t the easiest place to reach in China, but it’s definitely worth the effort to get there.

Where is the Shaolin Temple – Wangzhigou Village
For the duration of our Shaolin bootcamps, you stay in Wangzhigou, a village just 10 minutes walk from the Shaolin Temple.
The village is small, with a handful of very basic amenities, such as small convenience stores and simple Chinese restaurants.
It is also home to numerous children’s kung fu schools, the students of which can be seen training from early morning till late at night.
Where is the Shaolin Temple – Accommodation
While in Wangzhigou, program participant’s accommodation is in a hotel with 3-bed mixed dorms and shared bathrooms.
A dorm is a room with several beds, which may be occupied by other members of our programs, or other guests staying at the hotel at that time. Dorms are equipped with TVs, kettles and air conditioning.
Free WiFi is available throughout the hotel, but there are no laundry services, so please pack with this in mind. En-suite private rooms are also available, at extra cost and depending on availability.
Please Contact Us for more information if you would like to enquire about private room availability.
Where is the Shaolin Temple – Training facilities
Morning warm ups and taichi training take place in the scenic areas surrounding the Temple.
Where we train inside the Temple depends on the weather, and is either inside the main training hall, or in one of the Temple’s courtyards.
Washrooms are available, but be prepared to bring your own drinking water to training sessions.
Where is the Shaolin Temple – Around the Shaolin Temple
The Shaolin Temple is inside the Shaolin Scenic Area, at the base of Song Shan Mountain.
The scenic area is home to many sites of historical and cultural interest, and some stunning views on clear days.
Our Shaolin Bootcamps include optional excursions to see some of these beautiful locations.
