Detailed itinerary:
The third highest peak outside of Beijing, Baihuashan Mountain is a nice cool retreat with winding creeks and dense vegetation, which make the temperature here on average 10 degrees Celsius lower than downtown Beijing. Baihuashan has also won acclaim as the "best forest bath" in a Beijing suburb. The Forest here is dominated by various pine trees, and the ground is dotted with wild flowers. The mountain’s name in Chinese literally means a mountain boasting hundreds of flowers.

We will start our hike along a stone trail and there are stunning views along the way. There are a lot of birch trees there. There are 1,100 species plants in Baihua mountain. There is large meadow when we reach the summit. In this area, the meadow extends for a long distance. We will have our lunch there. After lunch we will walk along the wooden trail in the meadow. After that we will return to the entrance and our car will be waiting for us there. 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.
