    Becomes a holiday is a bit far from the city, and climbing attracts many people from early in the morning. 1 time I get how much do top. Before the climb, we eat breakfast in the vicinity of kozan, eight started climbing ago. And rode the lift from the 9:30, has been going down. Get off the lift and short RADIUS Temple and home praying, said Wen's famous temple there. Include Temple of the fragrant Hills Park entrance fee and 15 Yuan. Lift the per person one way 80 source is high, the view from the top is best I think is worth a ride. Okay, here I opened from 6 am, so if possible, go early in the morning and a few people. Because it feels good in spring and summer and beautiful fall foliage in Beijing, is please visit us.
