Meet your guide at 9am at your hotel and begin by climbing Jingshan Hill in Jingshan Park, the highest point along the central axis of Beijing.

Made from soil dug during the building of the moat at the Forbidden City, this artificial hill was located according to the dictates of Feng shui: to protect the imperial palace from the evil wind from the north. Today, the hill is best-known as a place to enjoy outstanding panoramic views over the walled palace and downtown Beijing.
