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.

Huaqing Hot Springs Xian

People usually visit Huaqing Hot Spring on the way to or back from the Terra Cotta Army since this site is located under the Lishan Mountain just 5 km east of the Terracotta Warriors and Horse Museum. It is famous for both its spring scenery and the romantic love story of Emperor Xuanzong (685-762) and his concubine Yang Guifei in the Tang Dynasty (618-907). If you want to know more about the Chinese history, especially the Tang Dynasty as well enjoy Chinese gardening, this is the right place.

It is recorded that as early as the Dynasties of Zhou, Qin, Han, Sui and Tang, temporary imperial living place was built here. In the 6th year of Emperor Xuanzong Reign in the Tang Dynasty(747) it was widened on a massive scale by making the hot springs into bathing pools, surrounding the Mount with palace buildings, which were to be protected by an outerround defensive wall and renamed it Huaqing Palace. As the palace was constructed upon the hot springs, it was also called Hot Spring Pools.

In 756, the palace was turned down by the fire of war. Most of the existent buildings were constructed in the Qing Dynasty and after the year of 1949. Huaqing Pools is attractive for its exquisite and picturesque view characterized by green willows, beautiful pavilions and terraces, grand halls, pink peach blossoms, rolling towers, winding corridors and long verandas. Jiulong( Nine Dragons ) Lake is crystal clear and mirrors the pavilions and towers.

The most romantic story linked to the history of the springs is that of the Chinese version of Romeo and Juliet; the story of the Emperor Xuan Zong and his concubine Yang Guifei. Yang was a poor girl who the Emperor loved and promoted to the position of "lady". The story has it that he was so attracted by her beauty that it kept him from his routine work. The whole country was being threatened and the courtiers threatened to kill the concubine, blaming her for the Emperor's misact of his duty. Strongly and madly in love, Yang hung herself to save the country and her lover's name. The springs were renamed the Huaqing springs in honor of Yang Guifei's beauty.
