Introduction of Baiwang Mountain
Baiwang Mountain is a lush, heavily forested park, located about three kilometers northwest of the Summer Palace in Beijing, Covers an area of roughly 133 hectares with the Beijing-Miyun Diversion Canal crossing through it. The dominant peak is 210 meters above the sea level.
The mountain was known as "Watched the Son Mountain" among old Beijing locals. Tradition had it that in the Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127), Yang Liulang (the sixth son of Yang Family) engaged in a fierce battle with the army of Liao. She Taijun, his mother, witnessed the battle and cheered for him on the mountain, thus came the name. Now, a statue of Yang's mother She stands on the north side of the mountain.
There are many steles with themes of protecting nature and promoting a green environment inside the gate of the park. Some pavilions and corridors have been built in the Stele Forest. This forest of steles collects inscriptions, poems, verses, paintings and calligraphy on "green propaganda" by country leaders, celebrities as well as painters and calligraphy artists.
The Baiwang Mountain forest park has many places for sightseeing, such as the Building for Overlooking Beijing, the Maple-Leave Picking Pavilion, the Looking Back Pavilion and the Pavilion of Friendship. Meanwhile, the park provides scrambling, and orienteering so that visitors can take plenty of exercise. Tent camping is also permitted.
