A 250 km ride along Jingcheng Expressway through Chengde, following the Chengwei and Chengchui routes, takes you to a scenic place near Beijing– the Maojingba National Forest Park. The park is teeming with recognizable colors of the four seasons while describing its landscape as “varied and graceful” during autumn is definitely not an exaggeration.

Whether you are standing or strolling through the ridge or the valley, you can’t help but be amazed and overwhelmed by the sea of beautiful and enchanting colors. The peculiar mountains of varying colors, ridges reminiscent of undulating fine silk with its wavelike formations, fiery Acer mono, white and yellow birch vegetation that evokes romantic feelings, and the seemingly endless mountain stream that forever hums as it flows along, are like vintage wine that unwittingly intoxicate you.
