“Worth a visit, amazing history”
Reviewed September 13, 2011

This is well worth a trip, you can usually get a bus from the hotel but a taxi there and back is only around $40 US and you have the driver for the whole day

The tombs are very much hands on, you can walk right up to and around them, how they lasted without being destroyed is beyond me. The displays are very informative and are in both chinese and english explanations

If you are in Yinchuan then my guess is this will be your only opportunity to see this piece of history, so make the most of it and allocate a half day to see the Tombs, you will be happy that you did.
