This UNESCO site used to be the mausoleum of the founding father of the Qing dynasty, Nuherharji (1559-1626). He didn't assume the title of emperor of China (or the Manchus), but did first launch the campaign against Ming. Unfortunately, he died about two decades before Qing overtook Ming, and was later respected as the founding father of the last dynasty in China's history, Qing.

The site is not that far from the city center, but there are only a few public transport options (You can take bus No.218 or 168 from Zhongjie). Compared to Beiling park (located among residential areas, metro accessible), this park is isolated and quiet with much far less visitors, which is brilliant (so you can avoid the crowd and noise or the hectic urban environment altogether). As a local, I've been there multiple times, and I particularly enjoy the view from the high walls. Also, the tomb was located up on a hill, which was the Manchu way (unique compared with Han traditions).

The whole park is quite large, and the site was first built in the 17th century based on natural environment and local topography, whereas the Beiling site was man-made (authentically built in the 17th century with great nature though). From the map you'll see, Dongling park is connected with the hills and mountains to the east and the northeast, and Beiling park is located in the middle of a plain, with no natural habitat nearby (Beiling is worth visiting as well and easy accessible, but here we are ).

Dongling Park is home to a collection of ancient buildings and structures, including the mausoleum of Qing Taizu Nuerhachi (1559-1626) and his queen. Nuerchachi was a chieftain of a Manchurian tribe and a co-founder of the Manchu/Qing Dynasty. The park has many beautiful flower beds, stone statues of animals, an ancient-style Chinese bridge, and more. It's definitely worth a visit!

Dongling is the burial tomb of the first emperor of the Qing dynasty. It's on the outskirts of town so you will need to travel there by taxi, Didi or private car. It's also served by public buses. We went with a Didi driver but could not get a driver to take us back to Shenyang, so we took a public bus to Shi Fu Square and caught a subway home from there. The bus was great, 1 yuan a ticket, not very crowded and we got a seat. We went to DongLing on a weekday which was a great decision - there was practically nobody else there! It was amazing and not an experience that I have had in my travels around China. DongLing is really more like a large park than a mausoleum. There is a long walk before you get to the actual burial area and that long walk is populated with many pine trees which are hundreds of years old. There are also monuments with both Manchu and Han characters inscribed in stone and four carved stone animals (camel, horse, tiger and lion) in pairs on either side of the long walkway. Be prepared to take many photos! You could bring a picnic lunch also; it would be a great place for that. We spent about 6 hours there walking and exploring the grounds and the temples. There is also a public park adjacent to the mausoleum which charges additional admission. We went there also and that was relaxing as well but there are no sights to see there. Highly recommend you go if you need to get away from the crowds in Shenyang for a day.

The Dongling Park is part of the Fuling Tomb - outside the Walls of the main Tomb area. Still has some of the thousands of 400 year old Pine trees planted originally when the tomb was opened in 17th century - the rest were destroyed during the Japanese occupation in 1930's and 40's.
The Park and lake are well worth a look - to get there the 168 bus leaves from opposite the North Train Station - 4Y - as this is the start of the bus run you will be sure to get a seat. Most of the trip goes under the E/W motorway.

The area is an old emperor tomb area in a very good condition. To reach the tomb you have to walk a very nice park; and the whole area is located within a big forest, so you can get fresh air during your trip

There were surprisingly only a few tourists on Friday afternoon. It was serene. The stone sculptures along the walkway, pine trees, 108-step stairway, and the wall were unique and very nice. As in any historical site, you will learn and enjoy more if you know the history. There are signs explaining different sites but can’t recall it is in English or not. There are also exhibits displaying information about all other mausoleum for the Chin Dynasty emperor. You can't see the actual tomb if you are looking for it. The tomb is under the "Round Hill" at the back.

You can also find other review under “Fuling Tomb”. Fuling Tomb is the official name. DongLing means the Eastern mausoleum (“Dong” means east), hence this is what is commonly called.

Get there early in the morning before the Chinese arrive as it is then very peaceful. No oustanding sights but well worth visiting.

The park sits right outside a famous tomb and is a nice way to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Pack a picnic and check out the Buddhist temple nearby.

We had half a day free so were taken to see the park. Entry to the park is free but entry to the emperor's tomb is charged.

We went in the afternoon time... It was extremely sunny but minute we were in shade, it was breezy n cool. Really a haven in a busy city like Shenyang
