The Fragrant Hills (香山) Posted by on Dec 18, 2010 in Uncategorized

The northwest corner of Beijing is home to the beautiful Fragrant Hills, or 香山. It’s a great place to visit in the fall. That is, of course, if you can deal with the throngs of Chinese tour groups who make it the most crowded place in all of Beijing on the weekends. Forget taking the bus, hail a cab, and then hike your way in the long and winding road up to the hills. On a clear day, the view from the top makes it all worth while. Just be sure to bring your walking shoes, unless of course you feel like waiting for an hour to get on the bus and then another hour and a half to make it out of traffic…

Since the Fragrant Hill’s red leaves are so beautiful, it’s no wonder so many people come here.
