Amazing site but not sure it was incredibly worth it it was a car ride from Great Wall and not very rewarding!

Sacred way and the main thumb it is worth of it. You just need 30 minutes but is really impressive you can see the landscape with 12 more thumbs. It is worth it and = crowded

You will be in awe of how much land is dedicated to the tombs. I highly recommend a guide or read about this before going. There is a lot of history that is buried here (pun intended). It is a very peaceful place to visit.

We visited this location because it was included with our Great Wall tour but honestly could've done without it. Not much to see besides some artifacts and a recreated sacrificial ceremony that was pretty long. Will not be going back or recommending to anyone.

we have been visited this place to know the ancient Chinese monarchy and their impact. Its with kings and their family clothes and the statues. One should need avoid the visit.

If you are an enthusiastic of Chinese history it's probably a nice place to go. But if you are not... Better save some time and some steps to visit other places.

Only enjoyed the walk along the path way seeing the carved animals but that's about all. Wouldn't have visited here if not part of a group tour.

I thought they all were in one location, but we had to drive from place to place. Interesting to see one. My friends and I picked Changling as it had an interesting history visualised on the map: the Tomb; Sacred Way, the Arch.. all quite...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.
