Detailed itinerary:
Lama Gou Men Primitive Forest Park is Located in Huairou district, which is about 150 kilometers from downtown Beijing. It covers an area of 70000 mu (27 hect­ares) of primitive second growth. The Nanhouling is the highest peak in Huairou. It has a sea level of 1,700 meters. There are more than 100 scenic spots, including mysterious virgin forest, sea of clouds and towering cliff.

It is cool in summer. The average temperature is only 22 degrees. It is a great summer retreat for people from downtown Beijing. Autumn arrives here early because the frost-free period is short. There are lots of maple trees, oak trees, larches, silver birches and mountain poplars. October is the best season to visit here. There are tracts of red and yellow leaves, and leaves of other colors mixing together.

There are two scenic spots in the Lama Gou Men Primitive Forest Park. One is Phoenix Platform, the other one is Five-dragon Pond. We will choose to visit the Phoenix Platform for a one-day hike.

Bad weather plan:
We will email you 2-3 days before the hike to let you know about the weather condition. If there is thunder storm, heavy rain or strong wind it will be dangerous to do the hike in the high mountains. So we will cancel it or change the dates.
