#24 of 184 in Historic Sites in Beijing
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • All around the temple has more than 600 species of trees, more than 60 plant species, forest life and reproduction of many species of birds and wild animals. Green Temple is very good, it is a natural oxygen bar. We also caught up with the Chrysanthemum exhibition chrysanthemums of various known or unknown, is opened in full swing. There are places to buy water and food, autumn scenery is also good, just to catch the red and the yellow of the Ginkgo leaves. On the stairs, in fact, Temple is not very high above sea level, exercise as usual activity is good. There are a lot of parents take their kids along. Tips around the steps, how old is the old man can't climb. Yin said this super effective, a lot of people were holding children back also, Guanyin is plastic front with lots of banners, many of which are new to the. Gate guarding at the gate after 3 o'clock days of Auntie was not allowed to enter, said it is too late could get down. So I want to climb to the top of the TX be sure to go early.
