Occupying northeastern Hebei Province, Chengde (承德) is a city with a prominent place in Chinese history and culture. For its magnificent natural scenery, unique charm, and rich culture, Chengde earned the monikers “China's Photography Village” and “Home of Chinese Paper-Cutting.” The art of paper-cutting was handed down as a traditional family craft in the Chengde region and is a heritage art form of the Manchu people. Other famous attractions here are the Chengde Mountain Resort, the Jinshanling (金山岭) section of the Great Wall, the Mulan (木兰) Hunting Paddock, and Qingchui (磬锤) Peak.
_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).
M30***87I went to Putuo Zongcheng Temple on December 17th. It is worth the visit. Although the weather is colder, there are few tourists and the red and white buildings are spectacular. It is recommended to set aside half a day to visit. Compared with the Summer Resort, it feels more interesting here.
_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. ️
M26***97Arrived at around 10 in the morning, I bought a ticket 168 on Ctrip. After I arrived, I changed it to a paper ticket and bought a ticket 198 on the spot. It was the same. Change the water each morning and afternoon. It’s too cold outside and I didn’t go out. Indoors, there are various hot springs, milk, ginseng tonic soup, chrysanthemum pond, lotus pond... each has its own differences, as well as surfing, separate children’s pool and adult’s pool, and the buffet is also good. After eating, there is a lounge to rest. Play for a day, not tired but also very casual, suitable for family play. like very much
王坦克This good place cannot be rated as the top few in Chengde on the tourism introduction software. But I think he is a better place than Mountain Resort. If the Mountain Resort is ranked first, Shuangtashan must be second. Because this natural landscape and artificial wonders are rare. Like the Little Potala Palace, you can actually see the panorama at the Mountain Resort. There is no need to fly in and see it again. Tickets for Shuangta Mountain are not expensive and cost-effective, much better than Mountain Resort. Tickets for the Mountain Resort are too expensive. Add in the various transportation expenses inside. Shuangtashan is still the best
Super cool city, nice breeze , many exiting street food with good taste.. colorful buildings and nice scenic spots
potalaka - means small potala, is actually a copy of the original Potala palace from Lhasa. it's almost the same as on the picture of 50 rmb, as u can see. this place is huge. usually I don't like to go with guided groups but this time I had to so I didn't have time to really look around. it was very stupid to go with the group, bit at least the guide was good and told lots of stories some of them may not be true though.

Chengde, there are many temples here.
Pule Temple is located in Chengde City, Hebei Province, and was built in the 31st year of Emperor Qianlong (AD 1766). The whole temple building is a combination of Han and Tibetan styles. The western part is composed of Shanmen, Tianwang Hall, Bell and Drum Tower, Hall and the main hall according to the style of the Han temple. The eastern part is a Tibetan city building. The main building, Xuguang Pavilion, is a dome that resembles the Temple of Heaven in Beijing. The top of the pavilion houses a circular algae well, a dragon and phoenix pattern, and a dragon and phoenix well center carved golden dragon play beads. The algae well adopts three layers of layers of shrinking and heavy weighting. The carvings are fine and golden, with high artistic value.

[Yongyou Temple of Hebei Summer Resort]
Yongyou Temple is very conspicuous in the mountains and villages, even in the city of Chengde can see its figure. Yongyou Temple once enshrined the portraits of Emperor Kangxi, Yongzheng and Qianlong, and it is very important to see its status. The
Yongyou Temple Tower is an octagonal and nine-storey-style, 66-meter-high. The layers of the gongs and songs of the gongs and the gongs are made of glass. The height of this tower has broken through the Hengyeping of the Wanshuyuan, which is one of the scenic spots of the summer resort.
It is no exaggeration to describe the sky in April as a mischievous little girl. In the past few days, the sun was shining brightly and the sky was clear, and when it was not enough, it ushered in a snow that could not be prevented! Some people say that the sky in April fell in love with the land of the twelfth lunar month. When the tears of his thoughts shed into the river, the genius will have a snow-like snow. After the snow, the earth is covered with silver, and the Great Wall of Jinshanling is dressed up in white snow, and it is a scenery of the North. In the fog, the Great Wall is like a white dragon, magnificent and majestic. The mountains inside and outside the Great Wall are also covered with various shapes of trees hanging, beautiful and clean, crystal clear and unique. In the spring of the spring, I walked into the Great Wall of Jinshanling and accidentally discovered the surprise that Shang gave me. It was the majestic Great Wall. It was covered by the snow and stood between the Great Wall. I couldnt help but think of the eternal singer Snow Northern scenery, thousands of miles of ice, thousands of miles of snow drifting. Look inside and outside the Great Wall, but Yu Yu...! The Jinshanling Great Wall is a section of the Great Wall that was built by the late Ming Dynasty anti-tiger named Qi Jiguang. It is the most beautiful and magnificent part of the Ming Dynasty Great Wall. Moreover, the Jinshanling Great Wall has not been rebuilt, and it still maintains its original appearance compared with the Great Wall in other parts of Beijing. It has a simple and pure feeling. There are not many tourists here, and it is quiet and comfortable when you are playing. It is an excellent choice for visiting the Great Wall in the suburbs of Beijing. Known as the "paradise for photographers".
With the advent of summer, the temperature is getting higher and higher. It is a beautiful thing to go to a summer resort with green mountains and green waters. People who have lived in the Imperial City for a long time will think of Chengde Mountain Resort. But I can't think of the distance of 80 kilometers from Beijing. Qinglong Gorge in Huairou has such a beautiful summer resort. The unique climate outside the plug is cool and pleasant. It overlooks Yanqi Lake and overlooks the ancient Great Wall.
When I went to Chengde it started raining, but it did int stop us from enjoying the beautiful architecture of the city. There are many historical landmarks to see and the place is really pretty #china #happynewyear #unforgettableexperiences #instagramworthydestinations
In December, the Great Wall of Chengde Jinshanling was already wrapped in silver, "whistling", and it was not particularly strong! When I first arrived at the Jinshanling Great Wall Scenic Area, I was attracted by the spectacular scenery of the Great Wall in Jinshanling. I was sighing and sighing with joy, and I was full of joy and sighs, especially after the heavy snowfall. The Great Wall is like a silvery Tongtian Avenue that stretches to the horizon
all the way to the Great Wall. The endless stretch of the city road seems to tell the distant story of the vicissitudes of the Jinge Iron Horse...
The Great Wall is like a dragon flying in the mountains I am deeply impressed by the labor wisdom of the ancients, and I am proud of the high prestige of the long-standing and splendid cultural heritage of the motherland in the world. Being able to enjoy this great masterpiece is the life I yearn for!
Looking from afar, this golden roof is the temple of Putuo Zongcheng.
Putuo Zongcheng Temple belongs to one of Chengdewai Eight Temples. It is located in the hinterland of Yanshan Mountain, the transition zone between Inner Mongolia Plateau and North China Plain. It belongs to the transition zone from sub-temperate zone to sub-cold zone, semi-humid semi-arid and continental monsoon mountain climate. The four seasons are distinct, the light is sufficient, and the temperature difference between day and night is large. The annual average temperature is about 8.8 °C, and the average annual frost-free period is 160 days. Although the winter is cold, it is surrounded by mountains and blocks the cold current from the Mongolian plateau. Therefore, the temperature is higher than other areas in the same latitude. The summer is cool, the rainfall is concentrated, and there is basically no hot period. It is a tourist resort.
