Beautiful greenery only marred by the occasional noisy local parent barking at their children. Bring your camera, and get ready to pound the pavement. One day is simply not enough

The air was humid, and I was perspiring a lot, but the trek up the hill was well worth it. Oh, and do bring your camera.

It has been a long time, since the botanical garden and the fragrant hills park were far out of town and you had to take a long bus ride to get there, now in a short time you can very easily get there by metro,...More

Very famous for the autumn leaves, but also good for a winter day trip. Fan to climb the stairs to the top.

I'd say the stairs and trails are very well built and in very good condition. There are several areas that are accessible by the disables. However, the top of the hill is just too crowded and filled with trash with Beijing city view. Several toilet...More

located just west of the the west 5th ring road, this is my new favorite place in Beijing. It's a solid 12 miles/20 km bike ride from CBD, but well worth it once you get out there. Lots of hills to climb, and nice views...More

There is not much to see or do at the foot of the mountain. How long it will take depends on how fast you can walk and how often you will stop to see buildings or the view, but I would give 1 to 1.5 hours for sure.

The easiest way is to take subway line 1 to Bajiao Amusement Park and bus No. 60 to the foot of the hill of the park.
