Wuling Mountain is located in the Miyun District, just northwest of Beijing. In 2007, Beijingers voted on numerous websites that Wuling Mountain was “the most beautiful mountain of Beijing’s suburbs.” With 2,118 meters above sea-level its main peak is also the main peak of Yanshan Mountain range. The variation of terrains and landforms determines the density of its climate. Wuling Mountain was known as Fuling Mountain originally. While part of the beauty lies in the fact that the mountain is cloudy and foggy all the year round, Fuling Mountain gradually changed its name after several years went by. It is now regarded as Yellow Mountain in North China.
In its unique location, abundant with natural resources that add to the scenery, there are several natural reserves for protecting wild animals and the forests.
