We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Xian The tomb of Huo Qubing

Xian The tomb of Huo Qubing

Huo Qubing, known as an outstanding general as well as the militarist of Xihan Dynasty, he began to conduct campaigns at the age of 18. During his short-lived life, he sent troops beyond the Great Wall to beat to the Huns for six times. He died at the age of 23. In order to commemorate his eximious battle achievement, Han Wu Di constructed a grave of large-scale in the northeast of Maoling.

Xian The tomb of Huo QubingThe surface of the tomb was covered by the natural bricks and stones, which seem to be Qilian Mountain to memorialize his brilliant service in battle on the mountain. In front of the tomb, there are standing various kind of large-size carved animals. The most impressive stone carving is “Horse treads on the Hun”. With a length of 190 centimeters and height of 168 centimeters, the statuary is vividly life like. It calls up the image of the young general galloping across the battle. The horse holds high its head proudly, indicating the posture of Huo Qubing together with his brave army, at the same time under the horse is an old and ugly slave owner from Hun. The carving ploy of the horse and the slave owner are bright contrast. The horse is proportioned, with a simple and pithy style, while the salve owner is roughly carved. Obviously it indexes what is principal and what is secondary in the works. The technique of carve make far-reaching infection for the future development.
