The visit to the Underground Palace does require a bit of working and you will need a limited amount of fitness otherwise one could find it difficult especially during the summer months.The structure is very impressive and well worth the visit

Walking towards it is awe inspiring. And once you get inside, you realize what great builders the ancients were. People look on in silence, no wanting to disturb the solemness.

Dingling is part of the Ming tombs. It is situated in a nice green area with a 10 minutes walk leading to the underground entrance. The tomb is ancient and historically important, yet disappointingly grey, simple and gloomy. Quite many stairs are leading up and...More

Can I visit the underground palace alone along with Mutianyu wall or should I take a tour? I am used to travelling alone but not sure what to do in this case. Any info would be helpful. I will be in Beijing from october 9 until the 14th

I would advice that you get a guide or join a tour especially for dingling. There are certain explanation, rituals like how to leave the place that you wouldn't be able to know on your own. The great Wall you can do on your... More
