Because I went there during winter, so it was really cold up there. There are quite a number of temples at the first phase. As you go further up, there will be also temples.

After buying the ticket and walking in and visiting the first 2 temples, I was shocked to find the rest of the park was roped off. I felt like a sucker after taking a bus quite a distance to get there and paying the 10 RMB. However, it was busy with many Chinese and it seemed they felt fine with paying 10 RMB for the 2 temples. It is not a like of money but I still felt cheated. Skip this park until construction finishes. I am sure it is usually beautiful. I was done after 20 minutes.

As a residence in Beijing for more than 10 years I am surprised I did not know about this place before. I came here with a friend. We were a bit late and lazy so we booked an Uber/DiDi taxi to go there. Took about one hour. The sky was clear blue and it was just after the Chinese New Year. We took the trip to have a good walk. Once reaching the top you can see the city and since it was a clear day we good some good photos. There are several smaller and bigger temples and a big pagoda. I think the area is beautiful and would like to go back sometime soon.
