Detailed itinerary:
As a natural protection zone and a natural tourist attraction, Lingshan Mountain is mountainous and has the highest peak in Beijing. Lingshan Mountain has an average temperature 12 degrees lower than downtown Beijing.

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 beautiful wide review around, and then have our lunch there. During the extreme summer heat in downtown Beijing, 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.

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.

What to bring on this hike?
1. Lunch and snacks;
2. Sun protection: hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, long-sleeved shirt;
