Crowned as the highest mountain in outskirts of Beijing, Lingshan Mountain has an average temperature of 12 Celsius degrees lower than downtown Beijing. And the top of the mountain is covered with snow all year round.
Despite the scorching summer heat in downtown Beijing, Lingshan Mountain enjoys a springtime all year round. Meadows thrive with green grass, languid white sheep wander across the meadow, and you can see outlines of distant mountains in the clear sky.
At night, tourists may camp on the soft meadow enjoying a sweet sleep rarely seen in the hot summer. A dark blue sky studded with blinking stars may come as a bonus.
