At this time, only three of the Ming Tombs -- Ding Ling, Chang Ling, and Zhao Ling -- have been restored, and only one (Ding Ling) has been fully excavated. Only the Sacred Way, Changling Tomb, Zhaoling Tomb and Dingling Tomb are open to the public.
Setting off on our walk on the Sacred Way.

Christopher insisted that he could climb up on this statue. Not.

Next up... Tienanmen Square and the Forbidden City.
Have a great Wednesday!
