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.

The Tomb of Princess Yongtai, buried with the Wuzetian’s tomb, lies in the north of Qianxian Country. The princess Yongtai, named Xianhui Li, was the seventh daughter of Zhongzong, the granddaughter of Gaozong and Wuzetian. The epitaph suggests that she died of childbirth, but the historical records presumes she was beaten to death because she unconsciously talked about the scandalous affairs between Wu Zetian and her kept men Zhang Yizhi and Zhang Changzong. In 701, she was forced to die in Luoyang, only at the age of 17.

The path to the tomb is lined with a pair of stone lions, two pairs of stone figures and a pair of obelisks. It is the largest tomb composed with a main passage, five doorways, six skylights, a corridor, eight small niches, an antechamber and a burial chamber, which represents the house where she lived before her death. Both sides of the wall are decorated with 15 pieces of murals, most of which were vassal-in-waiting wearing the elegant central Asian fashions of that day. There are more than 1,000 valuable cultural artifacts are held in the tomb including: murals, pottery and wooden figurines, tri-color glazed pottery figurines, gold vessels, jade articles, cooper ware etc.
