XiangShan (Fragrant Hills) Park 香山公园, BeiJing

XiangShan Park lies in the well-forested Western Fragrant Hills.


This wonderful park is tranquil yet feature rich extending from the lower gardens and temple to the peak (560 meters) with tea-houses, pagodas and more along the way.


Don't miss the Tranquil Heart Studio, the main part of which is a long corridor encircling a round pond, and further up the hill (middle route) YuHua Villa and QiYue Villa; all three are now partly tea-houses.

Incense and candles, at BaDaChu 八大处, BeiJing

BaDaChu, 'Eight Great Sights', is a park comprising a number of Buddhist temples and nunneries, some still active, on the slopes of the Western Hills on the edge of Beijing city.


Though not as high as XiangShan, and not reaching the mountain top, it is still an energetic climb to the top site. The forested hillside valleys, with many ancient trees, adds much to the enjoyment here; a nice place for a gentle hike in the countryside.
