an interesting stop, the building is what you visit, various pieces of clothing, etc. the tombs ly behind it, the area is known, the tombs location is not, as the construction workers were all killed after completion, so it is a sacred site.

its worth a visit but it will consume lot of your time and also very far away from central Beijing. if you are in Beijing for just a day or 2 you can skip it.

A lovely introduction to some of China's historical past, we visited the tombs on the way to the Great Wall. The time of day and the season meant the site was largely deserted so we were able to explore it unhindered. There is not a...More

This trip really impressed. Much history and beauty. Fairly priced. Guides speak English. Not a ton of things. Can easily be done in an hour.

Out of the 13 or so tombs of the Ming emperors, only two are open to the public (I'm quite positive only two since the combo ticket only mentions those two namely Changling & Dingling, and yes it's a good idea to get that combo...More

Agree with other answers - there stairs but still lots to see and enjoy without having to climb stairs. It is worth the visit and is a lot quieter and less crowded than other attractions.
