schlep up all the steps (visiting temples along the way) to a great view below. The trail head (a further 2.1km) is completly blocked off currently so that's as far as you can get but still a good hours climb to the top.
...... one can find this wonderful temple in the mountains of Huairou on the outskirts of Beijing. Entrance is cheap, and the temple is a lovely quite place. Take time to study the gigantic bamboo, the lake, how two trees are growing off each other...More
We made a day trip to Red Shells Temple about 55 kilometers from the center of Beijing in Huairou. It was more about climbing the Hongluo mountain than visiting the temple as we wanted to do some hiking on the countryside with some nice scenery...More

If you happen to be going to Mutianyu you can tag on Hongluo Si as it is in the vicinity. Not sure if it is worth a special trip out in itself. I also don't think Badachu is of great interest, especially in the cold of winter.
Yanqi Lake area: what to do? (2 Replies)
