Day 1: Autumn Charms at Badaling National Forest Park

Badaling National Forest Park is located in Yanqing District, far away from downtown Beijing. But it has very scenery, especially its Great Wall and red leaves. The red leaves festival also takes place at this park, which covers an area of 56 hectares with over 50,000 maple trees.

Highlights: Badaling Great Wall and Red Leaves Ridge

Badaling Great Wall is a pass of Jundu Mountain and extends to all directions. So, it is called Badaling. Bada (八达) in Chinese means extending to all directions, and Ling (岭) means a ridge. Badaling Great Wall is located on the ridge of the northern part of the GuanGou. Here, two peaks face to face. The Red Leaves Ridge Scenic Area at this park is 500m higher above sea level than what's average for downtown Beijing. Because of the cooling effect provided by the dense forest and the surrounding Great Wall, Red Leaves Ridge becomes the first place to watch repish leaves in early autumn.

Highlights: Cao Xueqin Memorial Hall and Reclining Bupha Temple

The way to the hall is blocked by a huge stone on which is carved Memorial Hall of Cao Xueqin in Chinese fine calligraphy too. Beside it are some colorful flowers, and some of which have been designed into a traditional Chinese character "夢 (dream)". According to my understanding, it should refer to the name of Cao’s novel A Dream of Red Mansions. It is a flower made attraction, so that many tourists stopped and took pictures one after another. I wanted to take one, but I had no chance. Entering this hall, you will find more wonders. It is a traditional Chinese garden, small but full of flourishing flowers of different species. There are also shabby houses designed in a traditional Chinese style. As you move deeper, you will enter the sheds where it is said that Mr. Cao wrote his book A Dream of Red Mansions inside them. In these sheds there are different copies of versions of A Dream of Red Mansions, the background information of Mr. Cao Xueqin and other related stories.
