Your day begins with excitement as our well-informed guide and skilled driver pick you up directly from your downtown hotel. Prepare for a fascinating journey as we set out towards the Hanyangling Mausoleum.

Upon arrival, immerse yourself in a captivating exploration of the Hanyangling Mausoleum, an archaeological marvel that often remains undiscovered by many travelers. Built to house Emperor Jing and Empress Wang of the Han Dynasty, this historical site offers a unique perspective on ancient burial practices. Unlike the more famous Terracotta Warriors, the Hanyangling Mausoleum provides an intimate glimpse into the royal Han tombs, with an intricate layout that includes the emperor’s tomb and the surrounding sacrificial pits.

Discover the carefully preserved artifacts, including pottery figures, animals, and other offerings intended for the afterlife. Our guide will reveal the secrets behind the tomb’s construction and share intriguing anecdotes about the lives of Emperor Jing and Empress Wang.

After that, we’ll take a break for a delightful lunch at a local restaurant. Savor the flavors of authentic Chinese cuisine.
