Day 1. Visit Mutianyu Great Wall and Ming Tombs
We will meet you at your hotel and then drive you to the famous Mutianyu Great Wall. A cable car is available for you to reach the top to gain a marvelous bird-view of the scenery, but you must pay it on your own. After typical Chineselunch, you will be arranged to visit the Ming Tomb - Ding Tomb, the only underground tomb of the thirteen tombs. And on the way to the tomb, the Sacred Road is a great site, too. At last, we will transfer you to your hotel.
The Ming Tombs is located 50 kilometers northwest from Beijing City. It is the general name of the mausoleums of 13 emperors of the Ming Dynasty. Its long history, palatial and integrated architecture have made it a high cultural and historic valuable tomb. Changling is the most magnificent of the tombs, which is the tomb of Emperor Zhu Di and his empresses, surrounded by the succeeding twelve emperors’ tombs. Only the Changling and Dingling tombs are open to the public now.
The Sacred Road
Guarded on both sides with stone statues, the Sacred Road was originally built to lead to the Changling mausoleum, also considered as the road leading to heaven. It was used by the ancient emperors who went to hold a memorial ceremony for the ancestors. It is of great magnificence with 18 pairs of marble figures lined up opposite each other along the sides, including twelve pairs of animals such as lions, horses, elephants, camels, and other hulking beasts, and six pairs of human beings such as generals, and public officials. Each statue has its own meaning, generally bringing good fortune and warding of evil influences. Just from the road, you can imagine how majestic the tombs are.
Mutianyu Great Wall
Older than BaDaLing Great Wall, 79 km northeast of Beijing, the Mutianyu Great Wall is located in Huairou County, with a total length of 2250 meters and 22 towers to stop enemies. It has the typically biggest scale and highest quality feature of the Great Wall, and also possesses the distinct features. Many parts of Mutianyu are made up of granite. The most interesting thing is that both the inner and outer parapets of the wall are crenellated with merlons - a feature quite rare among sections of the Great Wall. And with the intoxicatingly beautiful surroundings, it is a perfect place for you to savor the beauty of culture and landscape.
