Chengde Mountain Resort
Our trip was not just within the Beijing area, but it included Chengde, which is north of Beijing beyond the Great Walls. (it was Mongolian land) As well as Tianjin. (which I will cover in the next post) The Little Potala Palace mentioned before was in Chengde, but there is also another attraction in Chengde - The Chengde Mountain Resort.
Unfortunately, it was not the peak period of travels, and most of the place was covered up for repairs and maintenance and whatnot. So the views weren't that great, it was a bit of a disappointment really. But I still took some decent photos to share here. :)
In the first photo up there is the famed Sledgehammer Peak, it's a natural rock formation! :D
