Approximately 30 per cent of the tree leaves in the Fragrant Hills Park, which has long been a top autumn destination, have turned red, so far. It is predicted that a larger area of the landscape will be bathed in red untill the end of this week, with some of the other leaves turning yellow. The colorful landscape in this scenic spot will be magnificent.During the "red leaves" season this year, the park will launch a real-time monitoring system for the first time to make sure visitors can be informed about the number of tourists on the spot at any time, so they can avoid the peak hours.

  About The Fragrant Hills Park


  The Fragrant Hill Area is located in the Haidian District, northwestern part of Beijing, China. It covers 1.6 km² (395 acres) and consists of a natural pine-cypress forest, hills with maple trees, smoke trees and persimmon trees. As well, it is comprised of landmark areas and a number of traditional architecture and cultural relics. The name is derived from the park's highest peak, Xianglu Feng (Incense Burner Peak), a 557 meters (1827 ft) hill with two large stones resembling incense burners at the top.

  Travel tips


  This scenic spot tends to be crowded during the autumn season.


  So if you want to go there you’d better set off before 9:00 a.m., otherwise, you may suffer from a traffic jam.


  Bus routes: You can take buses 318,331,360.696,698,714,563 to Xiangshan station.


  Tips: When you leave the hill to wait for the bus, you may be shocked again that there are so many people waiting for the bus. There is a knack that I want to share with you: if you don’t want a seat you can simply talk with the staff of the station and tell him that you prefer to stand once you’re on the bus.


  In that way you may save more than 40 minutes each time as you board the bus earlier.
