Silently, June is coming back with her joyful footsteps. However, increasingly hot weather cannot weaken our passion for travel. Here, we are very happy to recommend you the most beautiful attractions all over Beijing in June.
Seeing Sunset in the Summer Palace
Seeing sunset by the Kunming Lake may be the greatest pleasures of summer in the Summer Palace. Near sunset, you will encounter many shutterbugs and tourists by the east of Kunming Lake. The shadow of the 17-Arch Bridge and the setting sun from the faraway Western Hills add radiance and beauty to each other, forming the picturesque scenery as a Chinese poem described that “Sunset is of infinite beauty except impending of dusk”. On account of sun sets late in summer, you may also appreciate red setting sun reflecting in the Kunming Lake. In the hot summer, it is pretty cozy and leisure for you to have a stroll by the lake.

Seeing Sunrise on the Summit of Haituo Mountain
Haituo Mountain has three peaks, namely, the First, Second and Third Haituos. Among them, its main peak, the Third Haituo, about 2,241m above sea level, is the second highest peak in Beijing; the summit of the Dahaituo Peak is nearly 10km long and 500m wide. The narrowest place features gentle meadow. On the south side, the fault is significantly displaced and the terrain is precipitous. During October and next June, you will have the chance to catch sight of “Haituo Mountain covered with white snow”.
The mountain is characterized by such landscapes as “sea of clouds”, “alpine meadow” and “white birch forest”. As the average temperature is lower than downtown Beijing, and thus is an ideal summer resort for you this year. You will arrive at the mountaintop before sunrise next morning, if you start climbing at 11pm. You can keep the starry sky company during your climb at night, and witness the spectacular scene of a red sun turning into a super-large silver plate at sunrise.
