Things To Do in Chengde

Chengde Mountain Resort
11,030 Reviews
UNESCO World Heritage-Cultural Site    
_We***23The Mountain Resort was the summer retreat for some of the Qing Emporers and it's scale and beauty definitely speaks of power of the Qing at its height. There is the Palace area which is now a museum with an extre fee to enter, however it is probably worth it. The there is the lakes area which are one of the best parts. Artificial islands house pavilions and palaces which are great for walking around and then having a rest in the shade. To the right of the lakes is the plains area showing the manchurian heritage of the Qing dynasty. This area if just grassland, but at the end there are some Mongolian yurts and a tall pagoda. Then there is the mountain area which takes up most of the space of the resort. This area is sometimes closed (late winter and spring), but the tour bus that races around the mountains is definitely worth it. There are many areas in which you can get off, with the highlight probably being the view of the 'mini potala palace' from the wall. Definitely worthy of its designation as a world heritage site, and worth going, despite the rather steep price (at least for Chinese standards).
Jinshanling Great Wall

Historical Site
_We***74We started at the middle enterance and hiked until the east gate. Very exhausting but worth the view. If you are not up for hiking up you can take a cable car. Very touristed and crowded, but not as much on the trail. Side shops are everywhere, so you don't have to carry tons of water up with you. Also builds a lot of muscle in your legs. ️
Putuo Zongcheng Temple

SegaraMay 1st, the children come to feel the little Potala Palace, go to Tibet too far, just experience it, the scenery here is really super beautiful, the children all the way to enjoy the beauty of the Putuo Zongcheng Temple, really beautiful, wrong peak travel, haha, It will be very comfortable ~ The staff at the door is particularly good. I forgot to bring my parents' disability certificate. They helped me to use my ID card to check it, and then went to the network. After coming out, I told me that no tickets were charged for any attraction within four days. I felt the enthusiasm of Chengde people. I like this very much. Next time I come to Chengde, I will experience it again. Highly recommended ~.

National Park
妖蛾子ciciGoing before May 1st, no one has hahahahaha. The cable car is a bit scary. It is a chair for two people. It is suitable for young people. The scenery is very good. Don't sit for fear of heights! The South Gate can climb the mountain, but it's not very far or steep! It's a bit boring to take the cable car up and down. It is recommended to take a single cable car. Walk one way. The old man is ok.
