Following breakfast in the hotel we will visit the Putuo Zong Cheng Temple. To the north-east of the Mountain Resort of Chengde lies the Eight Outer Temples. Eight of the temples were administered by Lifan Yuan, an administration department for the affairs of minorities such as Mongolian and Tibetan, and so the name stuck. The temple is the biggest and the most magnificent building of the Eight Outer Temples. Built in 1767 imitating the style of the Potala Palace, the temple is also named 'Little Potala Palace'. For another reason that 'Putuo Zongchengzhi' is Tibetan for 'Potala Palace' in Chinese. The halls and pavilions in it were designed to naturally strew on hillside according to the hypsography. The Big Red Platform is the principle construction of the temple. The platform and the three halls on it are all with the copper gold tiles roof.

Next to Putuo Zong Cheng is the Puning Temple. The Puning Temple was constructed in the 20th year (1755) of the Qianlong reign. In order to celebrate the suppression of rebellion of Junggar tribe, Emperor Qianlong invited the four troops that participated in the suppression to the Mountain Resort in October in the 20th year of the Qianlong reign. He dubbed leaders of the four troops, and ordered to build the Puning Temple.

Following your visit to the Puning Temple you will be taken to the Chengde train station where you will take the train back to Beijing. Upon arrival in Beijing you'll be met by your guide and driver who will take you back to your hotel.
