As far as I know, the Longmen Grottoes can be visited now and it is safe to visit Luoyang. If you also plan to visit the sights in the city, you are suggested to stay in a hotel in the downtown area, or you may consider choosing a hotel near the grottoes. It takes about an hour to get to the Grottoes from downtown by bus.
