Baiwang Mountain Forest Park

   Baiwang Mountain Forest Park is located three kilometers north of the Summer Palace and Baiwang Mountain Forest Park and is said to be the nearest one to Beijing.

 

  With more than 95% of vegetation coverage, it is often regarded as the oxygen source of Beijing. The highest peak there is 210 meters above sea level. It offers an excellent view of enchanting red leaves in the autumn, when the mountain is beautifully decorated with splendid red foliage.

 

Baiwang Mountain Forest Park

 

  There are many steles with themes of protecting nature and promoting a green environment inside the gate of the park. Some pavilions and corridors have been naturally formed by the stele forest, itself! This forest of steles collects inscriptions, poems, verses, paintings and calligraphy by country leaders, celebrities as well as painters and calligraphy artists as part of a "greenification campaign."

 

  A memorial hall in the park tells the story of over 200 revolutionary martyrs and has a collection of precious photos and letters of those forerunners therein. Additionally, there are other places of historical interest, such as the Sh'e Temple, a temple built in dedication to an outstanding heroine from the Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127).

 

  The park also offers tourists various activities to partake in, like rock-climbing, hiking, and a music bar on the top of the mountain. Twelve different rock-climbing routes, ranging from easy to difficult, provide for the enjoyment of those who love the sport.
