Your Way Holiday

Firstly, you will be driven to the northeast of Beijing to visit the Eastern Qing Tombs in Chengde, approximately 125KM from the city, taking about 2 hours. Locally known as Qing Dong Ling, these tombs are part of the Imperial Tombs of the Ming and Qing Dynasties UNESCO World Heritage Site. The last imperial dynasty of China, the Qing Dynasty, ruled from 1644 to 1911, during which time China's borders expanded to their greatest extent, encompassing modern-day Mongolia, Xinjiang, Tibet, Korea, Burma, Taiwan, and Vietnam. Surrounded by mountains, the Eastern Qing Tomb complex spans 80 square kilometers and serves as the final resting place of some of China’s most renowned emperors. Among the highlights, you will find the grand and opulent tombs of Emperor Shunzhi, the first Qing emperor to rule all of China, and Empress Dowager Cixi, one of the most powerful women in Chinese history. This historical site is not only a testament to the grandeur of the Qing Dynasty but also offers a serene and majestic landscape, making it a must-visit destination for history enthusiasts and cultural explorers alike.

Later, you will be driven approximately 160KM to visit the Little Potala Palace, a remarkable Buddhist temple complex built during the Qing Dynasty. Constructed between 1767 and 1771 during the reign of the Qianlong Emperor (1735-1796), the palace garnered significant attention during its development. Located near the Chengde Summer Resort, it is one of the Eight Outer Temples of Chengde, alongside the equally famed Puning Temple. Modeled after Tibet's Potala Palace, the ancient sanctuary of the Dalai Lama built a century earlier, the Putuo Zongcheng Temple earned the nickname "Little Potala Palace." This architectural marvel combines Han and Tibetan styles, featuring towering halls, intricate carvings, and stunning views, providing a unique glimpse into the spiritual and cultural fusion of the era. The temple complex not only reflects the grandeur and influence of the Qing Dynasty but also serves as a serene and majestic site, offering visitors a profound sense of history and tranquility.
