DAY 2: HUANGHUACHENG GREAT WALL-DING TOMB AT THE MING TOMBS
Hotel pick up around 7:30am - 8:30am and drive to Huanghuacheng Great Wall
The slightly less famous?Huanghuacheng section?of the wall is 65 km from Beijing in Huanghuacheng Town. This 10,800-meter section of the wall is the strongest and most well built, with six forts guarding six passes, twelve beacon towers, and thirty-two watchtowers. Ming Dynasty General Cai Kai supervised its construction.
It takes 2 hours drive to the Huanghuacheng Great Wall, less renovated Wall where you can have a glimpse of the wild Wall, less visited and quieter. You can do 1.5 hour hiking along the wall.
The current unrestored condition of the wall here made it quite tricky to climb. The wall is quite steep and the surface is very slippery with many loose bricks.
Please note: It needs more physical demanding since some part of this section is un-renovated and keeps a wild condition.
By the end of tour you will walk through the rugged rock pass then down to a lovely village down the hill which give you a vivid impression of rural life with all the farm lands, horse and donkey.
Dine in a local Chinese restaurant nearby the wall.
After approximately 1 hour drive, we will visit the?Ding Tomb at the Ming Tombs.?Ming Tombs was listed as World Culture Heritage which was surrounded by mountains. Ding Tomb is the only emperors's tomb that open to the public.
Dingling was built in 1590, Emperor Shen Zong and his empress were buried there in 1620. After it was built, the underground palace was covered with deep soil. The people in charge of the tomb construction and later burial of the imperials erected the tablet as a sign for relocating the underground palace when needed
