Typically when you go to Beijing, you would go to the Ming Tombs and Great Wall in a single day trip. If you can, however, hire a car and go here instead of the Ming Tombs. There's so much more to see, and it's much less crowded. It's a full day trip though...

Royal members who were buried in the Eastern group of mausoleums of the Qing dynasty, in Tungling county of Zhuhua, were those more prominent ones of the early Qing period, when the country was still strong and prosperous, such as Emperors Qianlong and Kangxi, with the exception of Empress Cixi who was from late Qing period. Most of the visitors... More

I agree with the other reviews I read. It's two and a half hours from Beijing in good traffic so just do-able as a day trip. We had perfect cooler weather which was great as there would be little shade except underground in the cool of the tombs themselves. Great history, atmospheric, nearly deserted and awe inspiring scale. I'm a... More

I went on a guided coach tour so we got a lot of history from our guide which added to the experience of seeing the beautiful traditional Chinese buildings. I flew my drone here & got some good video my YouTube channel is baze187 if you'd like to check it out. It's worth going for about 1-2 hours

A trip to the Eastern Qing tombs from Beijing is probably a full day trip in a private car. The tombs, themselves, are really fascinating. The Spirit Way is longer than the Ming one in Beijing, the Tang one for Empress Wu, and the First Ming Emperor's in Nanjing. We enjoyed the movie showing the robbing of Empress Cixi's tomb,... More

This is not frequented by many westerners; in fact, we were one of a handful on the day we visited. The scenery is interesting on the way there. I recommend go one way there, and then back a different way, in a loop past a large lake near Miyan. The drive is well worth it. It is about 80 miles... More

After visiting the tombs in Vietnam and being told they were modelled on the Chinese Emperor tombs I was very much looking forward to seeing these. What impressed me the most was the immense scale of the site. A shuttle bus actually drives you from the ticket office to the tombs but in doing so it passes the sacred way... More

As you will find indicated in the other reviews, this is not an easy site to get to, On the weekends, there are apparently direct buses from Beijing and Tianjin; on weekdays, you can take buses to Zunhua and take a small bus to Qing Dong Ling (aka the Eastern Qing Tombs). A car would give you more time at... More

Only 3 hours about drive from Beijing, I was surprise to see this quite and peaceful area. You can visit most of the tomb from the main emperor including Cixi, the powerful lady. You can go down and enter in the tomb where it's all so fresh and suiting water from everywhere. Of course this area is covered by trees... More

I went to the Qing tombs with my family in summer 2013 and were lucky enough to be driven there by family in China. While it's quite faraway from the rest of the Beijing sites, it's worth a day's trip to Zunhua to see these tombs. After seeing the site in Beijing I was quite disappointed with the fake and...
