Had a lovely walk on the grounds, climbed the five pavillions and had a great view of the Forbidden City. Very much enjoyed seeing so much natural beauty. Surprisingly few Westerners!

Still my favorite park in Beijing. Full of energy in the early a.m. Glad to still hear the loud laughing chorus's echo throughout the park. Locals let us try our best a caligraphy and hackisack. The 70 somethings smoked us.

No trip to the Forbidden City is complete without a climb up to the top of this. I think about an hour is sufficient to climb, look around, and descend.

Park is a bit small but the climb up to the highest point is worth it - offering views of the Forbidden City and the rest of Beijing. Can consider doing the Forbidden City together with Jingshan, as the Northern exit of the Forbidden City leads to the Southern entrance of Jingshan.

Stroll around quietly to have a true experience of Chinese culture and history. See the Chinese doing sports and cultural activities or just medidating on the grass. After you visited the Forbidden City, move on to this park. Plan to spend 2 to 3 hours here depending on your pace.

Beautiful park, nice little climb to a very nice pagoda with a Buddha inside. Awesome views, well worth it on a clear day.

This will give you a good overall panorama of the city. Well worth the climb up. Luckily it was a clear day, with good visibility. A nice way to finish the tour of the palace.

It is a little bit of a climb to the temple at the top of the hill but the vistas over the Forbidden City are great and you have a 360 degree view of Beijing in general. The park around the hill is peaceful and relaxing. It is convenient to visiting a couple of the hutongs just north of the... More

Going out from the Forbidden City we saw the temple on the top of the hill - it was obvious that we'll try to climb there! Especially because we needed some silence and tranquility after the crowds and noise of the Palace. The park is very pretty and really quiet, entrance fee 10 CNY. Of course there were many people...
