Yunmeng Mountain National Forest Park covers a land of 2208 acres in the western part of the Miyun, with the main peak being1414 meters high. The forest is exuberant, the plants are luxuriant, and the wild animals and plants are abundant. The cover rate of the forest is more than 91 percent. The average temperature is 20 to 24 degree centigrade. You can feel cool and comfortable in the park and can appreciate views in every season. It is really a place with more beauty than one can take in.

Yunmeng ("Yun" means being cloudy and "meng" means being misty) was called Yunmeng (here, "Yun" has the same meaning, while "meng" means dream) in ancient time.

It is a sequester place with rummy hills, characterized as being majestic, steep, fantastic, secluded and open. The experts conferred "Mt. Huangshan's miniature" after their on-the-spot investigation. The most striking characteristic which is superior to Mt. Huangshan is its misty clouds and exuberant forests. The wonder of "The Three Seas"(the sea of forests, clouds and flowers) is rare in Beijing district.
