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... More

My wife and I went to visit her parents nearby and this was a great opportunity to see the tombs. the tombs are scattered all across the region and some of the less "important" members of the dynasty can be found in random fields in zunhua. the main site is accessible by car or small busses that go across the...

I don't know why after living in Beijing for a couple years we'd never made the trek to see these. It's definitely a long day trip, or you could stay somewhere along the way at the towns on the eastern side of Beijing (traffic is awful getting in and out of the city). The tombs feel so different than all... More

The trip to the tombs was well-worthed the ride from Beijing and expenses. It could be made as a day trip from Beijing, or a sight enroute to Chengde. The space and peacefulness will hit you once you reach the tombs. It was a very refreshing trip after the crowdedness in Beijing. There were not many visitors to the tombs.... More

The Eastern Qing Tombs are located 125km east of Beijing, at the foot of the Changrui Mountain. It is among the finest, largest and best-preserved tomb complexes in China. Five emperors, 14 empresses and 136 imperial consorts are buried here, including the famous emperor Qianlong and empress Dowager Cixi. The tombs are beautiful and a spirit way with statues of...

If you are in Zunhua there isn't much else to see or do so the Eastern Qing Tombs are worth a visit. We spent about 2 1/2 hours and visited two of the tombs and had lunch. You could spend much longer here and they apparently have some kind of show a couple of times a day.
