On our way back from the wall we ended up visiting this site of the Ming tombs. We might have settled on the wrong one but were just not impressed. We expected a similar experience as visiting the graves in Luxor but well, nothing like...More

We visited the underground palace and the Sacred Way following a trip to Mutianyu, and, whilst the site was impressive and certainly an important stop off, the lack of signage and information in the epicentre of the site (the actual underground section), was a tad...More

The Dingling Underground Tombs are well worth a visit, we combined these with a visit to Badaling Great Wall in one day from Beijing. There is a bit of walking and quite a few stairs but it’s definitely interesting and worth a look, admission is...More

We visited this tomb on our way to see the great wall. It had an interesting underground tomb/palace to see. There wasn’t as much to see In the underground tomb but the grounds were impressive with lots to see.

This is the only underground Ming tomb that is open. There is a short queue to go inside to see the replica coffins and the marble thrones. The original coffins and many artifacts have long been destroyed. The tomb is worth a visit although it...More

Out of the 13 Ming Tombs, Ding Ling is the only tomb that has been fully excavated and visitors could enter the underground palace. Ding Ling is the burial tomb of Emperor Wanli and his two empresses. From the ticket office, we walked through the...More

Lovely place to visit with some interesting history. It's difficult to imagine how it was built so many years ago. There were a lot of stairs and walking. Lovely view at the end. It was a bit boring for the kids but they had a...More

The Ming tombs are a historically fascinating collection of buildings from China's past. Nestled in a huge parkland area that is now rather built over, they are nonetheless quite awe-inspiring. The Dingling is one of (i think) 13 tombs to visit in the area. The...More
