The former Jehol became important, when in the 18th century the Chinese Emperors built a summerpalace there.
Specially Emperor Qianlong built some temples, which remind you of famous Tibetian temples, like the Potala in Lhasa.
1820 Emperor Jiaqing was killed by a flash. After that the Emperors left Chengde.
Today are only the garden and some ruins of the palace left. But you can still visit 4 or 5 of the temples. The ruins of the other temples are now in a military restricted area.
The landscape around Chengde is hilly with forests. So it is nice to wander around and discover even more temples and... more travel advice
