Discover The Park of Perfumed Hills (Xiangshan) China

Nestled in the hills an hour from the city centre, this old hunting reserve transformed into a 400-acre landscaped park offers an exceptional panorama. From the top of the 1,800-foot Xianglu Peak, accessible by cable car for 30 yuans (allow about one hour), you can admire the Temple of Azure Clouds, the Jade Foutain, the lake and summer palace, as well as the skyscrapers of Beijing. Below, the botanical garden crosses the road to the Temple of the Sleeping Buddha (Wofosi). Famous for its bronze lacquered 16-foot Sleeping Buddha, this temple was built under the Tang Dynasty. In autumn, just the sight of the red sycamore leaves is worth the visit. In the south of the park is the Xiangshan Hotel, designed by the famous American architect I.M. Pei, who also designed the Louvre in Paris.
