Great experience, not many other visitors when we visited early July. Walked for some time without seeing others on occasions. Pleased to see someone selling water on the way, despite costing slightly more than usual as we had drank our supply.

It is in fantastic shape and the "local" Chinese did not discourage us from taking a peek and a short walk!

This is a mandatory place to visit! Located near Beijing, we had a guided tour. Pogodabyla excellent, sunny. We must have enough power to get to the top, but it's worth it!

Following a superbly fascinating visit to the East Qing Tombs in the early morning, where we stayed, and a 2.5 hour drive, we arrived here at 1330hrs.
