Tomb of Emperor Tang Gaozong (Qianling) - Wow, a lot of great history 'buried' here. Beware of the Sun though.

The reason for heading out to see this is the age of the original stones and statues. For these to last as long as they have is amazing unto itself. The hike up the mountain is not difficult.
