    Underground palace at Ming Tombs would be a nice place to stop by on your way to Great Wall. However, just don't expect so much. ;-)

    me with random

    This is the only viewable tomb of the Ming Tombs.

    Must pass through metal detector before entering tomb area.

    Tomb isn't too exciting, but area around it is pretty nice.

    Ming tombs

    Here is a view looking for the entrance up to the main halls. The tombs themselves are underground and not that impressive. The grounds are much more the attraction.

    Emperor's tombs not far from the great wall at Bandalang. This makes a great stop on the way back from the Wall.

    Sacred Ways

    This is a small part of the Ming Tombs. Admission fees to various sections of the Ming Tombs applies.

    Can skip if you are not going to the Badaling section of the Great Wall.

    Ming Tombs...

    Depending on the hired tour, you will see the entire park or just a part of it, as the lattest was our case.

    If definitely worths a visit...

    Ask before hiring the tour.

    Avenue of the Animals

    A beautiful pedestrian avenue with 12 pairs of large stone animals and 6 pairs of warriors that represent the funeral cortege of the deceased emperors buried here. These were carved around 1540.
