Great Wall Hike with Cultural Tour to the Imperial Tombs

In addition to spending time on one one the best sections of the Great Wall, you'll also get to explore the Eastern Qing Tombs, which is the final resting place for many of China's last ruling dynasty. The day starts with a drive out to the Great Wall at Huangyaguan. The great thing about Huangyaguan was that it was designed as a miniature version of the entire Great Wall, giving you an understanding of the Great Wall's functions and features without having to walk the whole thing! From there we'll drive to the Eastern Qing tombs, a sprawling tomb complex that many feel is much more exciting than the Ming Tombs. Here is the final resting place of five emperors, four empresses, five imperial concubines, and one princess of China's last imperial dynasty, the Qing.
