Beijing Badachu Park Map

BaDaChu, meaning "Eight Great Sites," is a large park, located along the outskirts of urban Beijing, about 8 kilometers south of Fragrant Hills Park and about 25 kilometers from central Beijing. Well forested, the park covers an area of 250 Hectares?thus it has a pleasant climate all the year round—cool in summer and warm in winter.

It is famous for its eight ancient Buddhist temples and monasteries. Visitors can stroll from one temple to another, enjoying the beautiful scenery and admiring the arbor and rare ancient trees. Some of these trees have been standing for over 6 centuries, but their roots and branches are still strong and in good shape. In September and October, when the leaves are turning red, crowds of tourists come to climb the mountains. There is a cable-car to the top of the hill.

Badachu Park organizes two large-scale traditional tourism and cultural activities each year -- the Badachu China Gardens' Tea Culture Festival in spring, and Badachu Mountain-Climbing Festival on the Double Ninth Day on the lunar calendar in autumn. Tourists can join these two big events rich in Chinese tradictional culture.
