Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This temple in the western suburbs of Beijing is not just another temple. It is indeed quite beautiful. But its originality is that it is built on the side of a mountain. When you walk up from one part of the temple to another, you progressively discover a spectacular landscape with the temple buildings and the mountains. Superb !

    We stayed overnight for 1 night on our way to Lingshan Mountains. Lovely little local village with some interesting sights. Great area to stay to explore the surrounding mountains and villages. Many different dried fruits on offer.

    Today I visited the Great Wall @ Badaling. It is extremely touristy & even busy out of season. The wall is something special and must be visited. This part of the wall is close to Beijing, and once you have travelled there, you can conveniently reach the top by cable car. The views can be spectacular, although mine was effected by the misty conditions.

    This place is a bit hard to reach with public transport. But the place is very serene and seem to give you the feeling that you are back in ancient China. The background of this village was that it had produced 6 (if not mistaken, maybe more or maybe less) shortlisted scholars during the ancient China imperial ruling. I have a cousin who drove me here. So, I can't really shared what public transportation mode is available. I did asked about a private car service (just in case my cousin can't fetch me) and the cost is quite expensive at around RMB800.

    This mountain is on the west side of Beijing in Mentougou District. We came here on a Sunday in mid May and the weather was super nice. We took a DiDi from Ponguoyuan for 120 rmb. Ok price when you are 4 people.
    You actually drive up and up the mountain to a point where you are at 1000m over sea level. Then we had a look at the temples close by the gate before we walked to the top of the peak of Mt. Miaofeng. It was worth the hike to get to the top. The party is an actual trail in the forest not man made steps so this was a refreshing change from other spots I have visited. We spent a few hours here also had a look at the rose valley but turned out that the roses was not in bloom yet.
    For our return we took the but M05 for 2 rmb I think it was from the parking lot back to Pingguoyuan subway on line 1.

    Good for a day hike or multi-day hike. 40 km of trails. Beautiful foliage in the fall. Would love to go again. Also, dog friendly!

    I hope this is the right site. We went to Luoyang to see the Longmen Grottoes. It was a good walk and a lot of exercise walking up to see all the Grottoes closer up. It was such a hot day that we decided to take a boat ride back to the parking lot area. It cost less than $2 a person. I would suggest that to anyone, even if it wasn't a hot day, because it is such a nice ride and really gives you a good view of the Grottoes.
