Tour Highlights
Badaling Great Wall
Badaling Great Wall is a must-see attraction for most tourists at home and abroad, especially first-timers, and it has attracted more than 300 celebrities around the world, including President Nixon and Mrs. Thatcher. Badaling is the best-preserved sections of Great Wall built during the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644) with 12 watchtowers distributed along the northern wall and 7 towers on the southern part. The No. 8 North Tower occupies the highest location of Badaling and can provide you the best view of the Great Wall. Take a look around there far into the distance and you will be astonished by the great scene of the wall winding its way over the rolling mountains.
Visiting the Badaling Great Wall is a must for the first-time travelers
Ming Tombs
Thirteen emperors of the Ming Dynasty as well as their empresses and offspring were buried at the Ming Tombs. Nowadays, only the Changling Tomb, Dingling Tomb, and Zhaoling Tomb are officially open for visiting. You will be accompanied to explore the underground palace of the Dingling Tomb, the mausoleum of the thirteenth emperor of Ming to view its clever layout.

Sacred Way
The Sacred Way is right behind the gate of the Ming Tombs, leading to the Changling Tomb. In the middle of the lane there is a grand stele pavilion with crimson walls and upward golden eaves on the exterior. Inside there is a tall stone stele carved with over 3,500 characters listing the achievements made by the Yongle Emperor. Continue the journey along the Sacred Way and you will encounter 24 stone statues of beasts and officials lining along the path, which indicates that the emperor still has dominant power to order about both animals and his subjects in his afterlife.
