Did a quick day trip from Beijing, took an hour by car from down town due to traffic but worth it.
In Autumn with the leaves turning this would be a spectacular place, but at any time of year it is a beautiful place to walk around.
Quite a few historic buildings including an old residence of Chairman Mao's, there is some real history to be seen and learned.
There is a cable car / chair lift to take you to the top of the mountain (500+ metres) but walking up is a good way to go, you can see all the sites to make it a little easier, then cable car down.
Worth the travelling time.
