If you want to see the exquisitely built tombs of the Qing emperors and a less visited section of the Great Wall, this private day tour might be the best choice. The Eastern Qing Tombs is the largest, most complete and best preserved imperial tomb existing in China. Also, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful countryside of Beijing en route. The section of the Great Wall you will see is Huangyaguan Pass; it was first built during the Northern Qi Dynasty (550-557) and repaired extensively during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) under the supervision of the most famous Ming General Qi Jiguang.

What To Expect

Eastern Royal Tombs of the Qing Dynasty
Meet your guide at 8am in the lobby of your hotel and drive around 2.5 hours to the Eastern Qing Tombs. With a history of more than 300 years, the 161 emperors, empresses, concubines, princes and princesses of the Qing Dynasty were buried in these 15 mausoleums. A golf cart will shuttle you around the vast complex, stopping at three of the most impressive sites:

Yuling Tomb: tomb of Emperor Qianlong, the most competent Qing Emperor (1711-1799) and the most famous emperor in Chinese history.

Dongling Tomb: tomb of the notorious Empress Dowager Cixi (1835-1908) who ruled China for 48 years. Her tomb is famous for its luxurious decoration.

Sacred Way of Xiaoling: a 6km-long road starts from the widest stone archway in China, with beautifully carved figures of lions, Kylin and clouds. There are also 18 pairs of exquisitely sculptured giant statues, which served as guardians of the emperor’s afterlife.

2 hours • Admission Ticket Included

Great Wall at Huangya Pass (Huangyaguan Changcheng)
Afterwards, continue to see the Huangyaguan Great Wall, around 40 minutes drive from the tomb. Because the cliff rocks to the east of the pass are mostly yellow, it is called Huangya (Yellow Cliff) Gaun (Pass). It is a section of the Wall located in the Ji County, Tianjin City. It was originally built over 1,400 years ago in the Northern Qi Dynasty and reinforced with brick walls in the Ming Dynasty. It is an ideal place for people who want to enjoy some peace and quiet, and to see a section of the Wall with fewer tourists.
