Cycling around Yanqi Lake to get a glimpse of surrounding beauty


Yanqi Lake is located at the foot of Yanshan Mountain, 8 kilometers north of Huairou District in the suburbs of Beijing. It is a water and land area centered on the lake. Every spring and autumn, flocks of geese often come to roost in the lake, which is why it is called Yanqi Lake.

The ride route is about 20 kilometers long, passing through Yanqi Lake Road, Yanqi Lake Main Dam, Yanqi Lake West Road and Yanqi Lake North Road. Along the way, you can have a panoramic view of Yanqi Lake. When you arrive at the cycling destination - the natural "oxygen bar" Jiudu River, in addition to enjoying the flowers and scenery, you can also wash your lung because the air environment is very good.

Yanqi Lake

Yanqi Lake is located at the edge of the Great Wall at the foot of Yanshan Mountain and consists of two lakes, East and West, which is a famous tourist scenic spot in the suburbs of Beijing. In the golden autumn, it is refreshing to stroll around the lake when a cool breeze blows.

After enjoying the scenery of the lake, you can go to the west mountain trail of Yanqi Lake and climb the mountain to look far down into the vast lake area. When the afterglow sprinkles down, the blue and bright water of the lake gradually deepens, the surface of the lake is covered with a bit of golden light, and the green plants on the shore dance with the breeze, which is probably the beautiful scene in a good day.

Laopu Wenhuai Park

Zhang Henshui wrote in "Beiping in May", "In May, if you go to the top of Jingshan and get a bird's eye view of Beiping city, you will see Beiping city houses all jaggedly hidden in a sea of green. This sea of green consists mostly of locust trees ......"

Among the vast number of ancient locust trees in Beijing, the ancient locust tree on the upper west bank of Yanqi Lake, southwest of Baiyachang Village in Fangezhuang Township is worthy of being the "King of Locust Trees" in Beijing. In 2014, the Yanqi Lake Ecological Development Demonstration Area built a total of 348 hectares of park, relying on the ancient locust tree in the Baiyachang Village and the "Old Garden Asking locust tree " landscape node.
