Really fun climb, but very tough in the heat, take lots of water! Also the map here says the route is 10km but the route I take is more like 16km. I think thats because whoever made the map took the cable car half way up.

I was in Beijing for the weekend, so I took a few friends to visit the Summer Palace. I've been here multiple times, and different times of the year. I must say that if you plan to visit the Summer Palace, the best time to do it is NOT in the summer. Everybody else will have the same idea. There are LOT'S of people who visit in the summer.

If you visit, make sure to have your transportation to and from the palace arranged beforehand. You will not be able to catch a taxi anywhere near this place!

Plan on getting some walking done at the Summer Palace. There is a scenic lake, with lots of historic buildings. Read up on the history of it before visiting, to maximize your visit. I logged about 4 miles of walking here today - much of it on stairs.

If you visit Beijing, this is a must-see area of this historic city. Both the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square are VAST! Prepare for some walking! I clocked eight miles walked today. It was a rainy day, and those are the perfect kind of days to visit the heart of China. The crowds are gone, and the beauty is yours to behold!

Great views. Tough to take photos with all the people who frequent the site.

If you get the chance to hike the Great Wall (especially on a rare blue-sky day), you do it. 10/10 amazing.

This is one of the best hiking in Shenzhen. It is close to the city and offers unbeatable view to Shenzhen and Hongkong.

This trail is rather easy. One can say there is nothing spetacular about it. However, the waterfalls and the ponds in the area make the trip worthwhile. Beijing lacks wather and waterfalls.

very intesting. it combines the historical artifacts with outdoor activity. highly recommend.

I have been to both shangchuan and xiachuan islands. They are much less developed than Hawaii,usa. But that is exactly the Beaty of it. Hardly any English speakers been there,except missionaries centuries ago. Be there first.

This is my favorite hike in Shenzhen. It is very close to the city. It offers the best view of Shenzhen and Shenzhen bay. Reminds me of viewing vancourver,Canada from the goose montain.

The road is paved. Be sure to have sun block if you hike during the day. It gets cooler at the top of the mountain. Take thicker coat if you stay over night. Camp is allowed near Tianci area.

This route is the classical route in huizhou peninsula. Natural elements,marine life,long sandy beaches,historical relics,and great seafood.
