    Taking the hike up to the pavilion is worth it after touring the Forbidden City, because you get a first-class view of the place you've been wandering around for the past few hours. Seeing it from this vantage point really drives home how massive the Forbidden City really is. The park is worth it for its own sake too-beautiful pathways with greenery, which is a nice palate cleanser from the Forbidden City. It's also a good place for shade in the hot sun.

    I visited Beijing in mid-June. The weather during that time was very pleasant. And, the sky is clean and blue. Jingshan Park is where you hike a little (just a little bit of walking, not tough at all) and capture this breath-taking birdview of whole Beijing (espeically the direction towards the Palace). Very pleasant experience walking around the park as well.

    Fantastic view of the forbidden palace from up top. The climb up is not as daunting as it looks from the bottom. A must see after visiting the forbidden palace.

    A splendid hill-topped park with an amazing view over the Forbidden City and the rest of Beijing. A the foot of the hill there is a beautiful garden with hundreds od flowers.

    Spectacular view over the Forbidden City and downtown Beijing (if there is no smog). Climb to main pavilion Wanchun Pavilion and the other smaller pavilions to the right and the left. It's worth it.
