Itinerary

Shuiguan Great WallBe picked up from your hotel by English speaking tour guide and private vehicle at 08:30 am. Drive to the famous Shuiguan Great Wall to start Shuiguan Great Wall 1 day trip.

The Great Wall was built and maintained between the 7th century BC and 17th century BC. It was originally built to protect the empire from northern invaders. The Great Wall stretches through the countryside over deserts, hills and plains for 8,851.8 kilometers.

With a history of 400 years, Shuiguan Great Wall was built during the Ming Dynasty. It is the east section of Badaling Great Wall and is the most complete and strongest section of the Great Wall of China. The arrow tower also is the pass of the water system used to defend against enemies, so called shuiguan(Water Pass). This is a rare architecture style different with other sections of Great Wall. see Shuiguan Great Wall tour map.

Sacred WayThen visit Dingling Underground Palace. Ding Ling (the Tomb of Ding) is the mausoleum of the 13th emperor (Wanli) of the Ming Dynasty, who had the longest reign in Ming dynasty. With five chambers, the underground palace of Dingling is 27 meters deep with a total floor space of 1,195 square meters. All chambers were built of stone without using a single beam or column. Dingling is the only excavated tomb for archaeological exploration. Tourists can see precious antiques in the exhibition hall.

Move on to visit Sacred Way. The Sacred Way stretches 7 kilometers from south to north through the center of the tombs area. It was originally built for the first tomb Changling - the tomb of Emperor Yongle, the most powerful emperor in the Ming dynasty. But as the later tombs were built either to the right or to the left, it became the main road to all of them. They formed one group, but each tomb is independent of the other. Each lies at the foot of a hill.

Be transferred back to your hotel after the whole day tour at around 18:00.
