Lovely temple to visit, serene and tranquill. Lots to see, nice to walk around in. The smell of incense can be overpowering when prayers are offered, but make sure to stand back when that happens..

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

HongLuo temple 红螺寺 or Eight Great Temples 八大处公园 (5 Replies)
Dear Experts, We are heading to Beijing in end Dec 2012. We have a extra day in itinerary and thinking of either HongLuo temple 红螺寺 or Eight Great Temples 八大处公园. We will be taking public transport (subway and bus) there. May I have your opinion which is better? Thank you in advance. Cheers.

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)
I am going to the Yanqi Lake area for 5-6 days for work in December. My work is mostly in the mornings so I have afternoons free. I'm looking for ideas to things to do. I have already been to central Beijing and the Great Wall multiple times. I was thinking about the Hongluo temple but am unsure whether it is interesting? Are there any interesting villages where I can spend a night and get back to Yanqi Lake before 10 am? Are there any other places in the area worth visiting in...More

I'm afraid you are a bit stuck in the middle of no where, far away from everything. Maybe one of the ski resorts is open. For the rest you have to ask the people you are going to work with if they have any suggestions.
