Overview

This lovely wooded park is a favourite of Beijingers, especially in autumn to see the maple trees with their striking red leaves ( it’s traditional to collect them). Walk thru the lower areas spotted with pavilions & temples and winding paths to wander around, or take the cable car up to the top for some views of the surrounding hilly countryside.

Very famous for the autumn leaves, but also good for a winter day trip. Fan to climb the stairs to the top.

I'd say the stairs and trails are very well built and in very good condition. There are several areas that are accessible by the disables. However, the top of the hill is just too crowded and filled with trash with Beijing city view. Several toilet...More

located just west of the the west 5th ring road, this is my new favorite place in Beijing. It's a solid 12 miles/20 km bike ride from CBD, but well worth it once you get out there. Lots of hills to climb, and nice views...More

Fragrant Hills is about 75 min from Beijing but well worth the effort. It’s a perfect family outing if you want to get away from the city and enjoy a day of hiking, nature, and Chinese culture. Take the ski lift up the mountain and...More

There is not much to see or do at the foot of the mountain. How long it will take depends on how fast you can walk and how often you will stop to see buildings or the view, but I would give 1 to 1.5 hours for sure.

The easiest way is to take subway line 1 to Bajiao Amusement Park and bus No. 60 to the foot of the hill of the park.
