This location is a bit off the beaten path. Very few tourists come out here and the road out was in a horrible condition. Once there there is only one tomb open to visitors to preserve the others from decay. It does however offer an...More

You can only go into one tomb, but the tomb is fantastic, with beautiful paintings of normal life. You can't take photos in the tomb but you can buy a set of postcards from the gift shop afterwards. The small museum is also worth it...More

Not as grand as other historical sites in China, but the Wei-Jin tombs give an idea of how more ordinary people lived nearly 2,000 years ago. Visit the great little museum first to get an idea of the history, then go on to the only...More

Other reviewers have done a pretty good job of describing the tombs - the depictions of daily life so long ago really are quite something - especially as they spectacular and yet just so...familiar. Short and sweet. Well worth a trip if you're spending a...More

This is not a big site, neither is it crowded. You sort of have the place for yourself. The reason to come here is to see hand painted tiles that depict daily life in the region between the second and 4th cent. AD. The way...More

I got to the tombs by paying 80 RMB for a taxi trip. No one else was there when I was. The museum has a nice display of painted tiles that can be photographed, as no photos are allowed in the cave. The painted tiles...More
