Chengde Mountain Resort (Lígong), the Qing Dynasty’s summer palace, is situated about 250 km from Beijing in the city of Chengde in Hebei Province. It is the world’s largest existing imperial garden and covers a total area of 5.6 km², almost half of Chengde’s urban area. It is a vast complex of palaces and administrative and ceremonial buildings. Temples of various architectural styles and imperial gardens blend harmoniously into a landscape of lakes, pastureland and forests.

The Mountain Resort is most famous for the 72 scenic spots which were named by the Kangxi and Qianlong Emperors. Many of the scenic spots around the resort’s lake area were copied from famous landscaped gardens in Southern China. In December 1994 the UNESCO added the Mountain Resort to its list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
