The Fragrant Hills
This is another great must-stop-by spot of Beijing .
I claim that there is no other better place to get the best new of Beijing !
Though I can’t possibly know that . . . because it’s the only highup place I have been to :D . . .
You srsly get an all over view of the oh-so-huge capital Beijing !
There is just one condition for you to get access to this view :
YOU HAVE TO CLIMB
and walk a loooong loooooong road all the way up the Fragrant Mountains :)
You could of course as well pay your way up to the top but I can promise you – once you reached the top after walking for 3 hours maybe ( no joke ) you feel so proud of yourself for not having returned halfway .
I love these kinds of experiences !
They view is lovely and the photos I took can’t possibly fully show you how beautiful that scenery is .
Yes – I am telling to go there by yourself haha ~
But let me show you my photos to let you get an idea of how it is like there :)
The weather was so good and the air soon fresh up here ~
You can see a lot of Beijing from here – in case the air pollution on that day is not too bad that is :P
But I was lucky that everything was totally fine that day !
As I was making my way up to the top we stopped at some spots to take short breaks and I got the chance to take panorama photos ~
Another chance to show off the iPhones great panorama feature hehe . . .
And let me tell you one more thing – the scenery will look soon much better when the leaves are getting red and yellow ( autumn look ) ! Make sure to check that when you come haha ~
Both Geon and me were so exhausted from the LONG walk but super happy when we reached the top haha ~
He denied being exhausted for a long time and I bet everyone could see he was .
That’s how I always call him .
Stupid Geon tsss .
In the end I said that it’s damn human to be exhausted .
I was also super exhausted and thirsty . . . but I saw him being like that and so I told him to take a rest .
OF COURSE I ALSO WANTED TO REST HAHA ~Sometimes it’s better to speak out ones mind even if it’s plain stuff like these haha ~
Love you anyway. . . my stupid Geon <3
This place is nearby Tsinghua University ( Science Park ) but still a little far off from central – it took us an hour to get there . Or maybe a little more :D ?
But it was worth it and I reaaaaally really LOVED the streets we passed to get to the entrance of the Fragrant Hills Park !
Full of yummy food and stuff – make sure to grab water there ( not expensive actually ! ) before you head to the park !
lots ‘n’ lots of love ~
