Overview

Chengde is 256 kilometres northeast of Beijing.
Surrounded by the mountains, it is a famous scenic city to the north of the Great Wall. Its major tourist attractions are the Chengde Mountain Resort and Eight Outer Temples. Built in the 42nd year of the Kang Xi's reign of the Qing (1703), the Chengde Mountain Resort was the former out palace of Emperor Kang Xi and other Qing rulers of the time. The palace structures along with the temple built in the place show the different styles of architecture by various Chinese nationalities. The mountain resort possesses scenery featuring those of both north and south China. For their unique shapes and beauty of colour, the Eight Outer Temples represent the different features of the culture of the Han, Tibet, Mongolia and other minority nationalities.
