4.4/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web
Covering a total area of 800 ha (1,977 ac), Hongluo Temple stands out as one of the largest and oldest Buddist temples in the area. Located on Mount Hongluo in northern Beijing, some 55 km (34 mi) from the city center, the area provides great opportunities for long, scenic hikes. Enjoy the imperial bamboo forest, with 500 Buddhas among the trees, or see the 2,000-year-old ginkgo trees standing 30 m tall (98 ft) and looking like a couple. An observation deck atop a steep brick stairway offers sweeping views of the hills and Hongluo Lake, as well as ancient pines and wisterias. Check different zodiac statues, ring a large bell, or enjoy the garden ponds and cascades of this 1,000-year-old temple. You can take a rail sled on your way down.

  • The temple is the birthplace of Buddhist religion and is considered one of the largest in all of China. Location at the foot of the mountain creates a favorable microclimate. We really enjoyed the stroll

  • The temple is situated in area of Beijing. Hard climbing stairs is worth those species that will occur before you upstairs, while easy, requires training. Got a lot of impressions, I advise you!

  • 寺周围各种树木有600多种,植物种类60多个,林内生活繁衍着多种鸟类和野生小动物。寺内绿化很好,简直就是天然氧吧。 我们去的时候还赶上菊花展,各种知名或者不知名的菊花,正开的如火如荼。一路都有地方可以买水和吃的,入秋了来看风景还不错,正好能赶上红红的叶子和黄黄的银杏。 拾阶而上,其实寺内海拔并不是很高,就当做平常的锻炼活动活动还是不错的。有好多家长带着孩子一同前往。台阶周围还有提示,多大岁数的老人不能爬山。 听说这里的观音超级灵验,好多人都是抱着孩子回来还愿,送子观音塑身前还有着很多锦旗,很多都是新送来的。 天门那里3点以后在天门口守着的阿姨就不让进了,说是去太晚了可能会下不来。所以想要登顶的tx一定要早去。
