The two Han Tombs in Dahuting Village near Xinmi date from the Eastern Han Dynasty, over 1800 years ago. One belonged to a Han official named Zhang De, while the other probably belonged to a relative. They are sometimes called the Tiger-hunting Pavilion Tombs. Beautiful murals depict daily life at the end of the Han Dynasty and are arguably among the most beautiful tomb paintings in China. I believe I am the first foreigner to photograph the tombs so thoroughly, and you can see 150 photos I took on my GaryLeeTodd.com website, which includes almost 120,000 photos of museums and historic sites all over China (freely available to anyone). Getting to Dahuting Village and the tombs is not easy as the tombs aren't exactly in a major tourist area, and you must get off the main highway and follow a side road to get there. There are a few road signs if you know what to look for, but probably you will need to hire a driver to get there. New road construction will be making the area more accessible in the future. The guards don't allow photos, but there are ways of getting them. I brought a couple of my students who kept the guards busy while I shot as much of the murals as I could. But many of them are covered by wire and/or glass for protection, which makes getting good pictures difficult. There is really nothing else to see at or near this site, but the murals are so breath-taking that it is well worth the time and trouble to hire a driver to take you there.

This is a pretty nice mountain and very easy to get to from both Zhengzhou and Gongyi as its just off the bus route between the two. The cave is not bad. But I preferred the walk afterwards down in a gorge beside a river - really pretty. If you don't go in the cave, you don't need to buy a ticket.

Ouyang Xiu was a great scholar/official during the Northern Song Dynasty (960-1126). Eight Imperial tombs from this dynasty are in and around Gongyi, while this tomb is near Xinzheng in Henan Province. I've lived in Xinzheng for over 10 years, and had a hard time finding the place. It is in the neighborhood of Peiligang Village, the type site for the Neolithic Peiligang Culture. This is strictly for the serious historical enthusiast, as there is little to see besides a gate, several buildings where Ouyang Xiu is honored, a garden area, two burial mounds, and some stone tablets for family member burials. I did not see anyone on duty, but there was no one to stop me from going inside and looking around. It was all pleasant solitude inside. Local farmers were using the parking lot outside to dry grain. I suspect I was the first foreigner they had seen there. The tomb is in the country about a half hour from Xinzheng, but perhaps less if you don't get lost.
