Private Day Trip to Huangyaguan Great Wall and Eastern Qing Tombs from Beijing
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 from Beijing might be the best choice. The Eastern Qing Tombs is located in the Zunhua County of Hebei Province, about 125 kilometers away from Beijing. It is the largest, most complete and best preserved imperial tomb existing in China. Five Qing emperors, 15 empresses, 136 imperial concubines, 3 princes and 2 princesses were buried there. 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.
