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.
