Very difficult to relate if you are not into chinese history. The tomb is empty and you see pictures and scruptures of the past. Boring unless you know the history of the war between the Mongolians and the Chinese.
Its a big area and buggy is provided to visit the area.
We travelled in a group of 14 and none of us enjoyed this visit.

The place is nice ,there are 253 tombs ,but as in China ,they only let you see 1 ,The large one ,as in everything in China ,only the biggest one matters ,they see no reason at all why anything else might be worth knowing about or visiting .

The place has historical importance, but it' difficult to dig it out unless you have done your homework beforehand. The little museum here is pretty uninteresting. You can go through it on roller skates.

Only come here as part of a larger loop that includes other destinations.

It was called Chinese Pyramid. But I think they are just so so because they were destroyed in past 100 years, but the museum (near the Tomb, with one ticket) is really worthy to visit.

Well worth a visit, the tombs of ancient kings built as 'pyramids'
