There are stunning views along the way and on the mountain summit. We will pass by a small forest, a large piece of medow and then arrive at the top of Lingshan Mountains with the sea-level of 2300 meters. We will stay on the top taking some pictures, enjoying the breathing review around, and then have our lunch there. During the extreme summer heat in downtown Beijing, East Lingshan Mountain enjoys springtime weather. Languid white sheep wander through meadows thriving with green grass, and you can see the outline of further distant mountains in the clear sky. The whole hike takes about 4-5 hours.
