While the weather in the south is still warm and humid, the autumn rains in the north in mid-October have gone through three rounds. From the fragrance of autumn osmanthus at the end of August to the withered red maple leaves at the end of October, the two fleeting months, the days of no wind, the clouds are far away, and when there is wind, the sun shines all over the city. This is a unique autumn in Beijing. The history and culture of the ancient capitals of the Six Dynasties and the pattern of modern mountains, rivers, cities and forests have made Beijing's autumn colors so beautiful in North China for thousands of years.

Miyun, located in the northeast of Beijing, is rich in tourism resources. The only section of the Simatai Great Wall in the Ming Dynasty, the Miyun Reservoir known as the "Pearl of Yanshan Mountain", the colorful Yunmeng Mountain in autumn, and the crystal-clear Heilongtan in winter, together with the Gubei Water Town, which is beautiful and moist in all seasons, has become a must-see tourist destination in Miyun District. This autumn, people flock here in search of the customs and scenery with the most flavor of the old capital and the most Beijing characteristics.

Coming to Miyun from Beijing, the two-day weekend is just right. I like self-driving, the road is open, and I prefer public transportation, which is convenient and fast. It takes about 1.5 to 2 hours to drive from the urban area. There is no hard work of boats and cars, only the rich and intoxicating autumn scenery, tempting food and satisfactory accommodation.

DAY1: First stop: Yunmeng Mountain

Yunmeng Mountain is well-known in the entire Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region. This scenic spot located in Miyunshi Town was originally named Yunmeng Mountain. According to legend, it is the incarnation of Yunmeng, the daughter of Nuwa and Fuxi. Later, because there are often white clouds on the mountain, it is called Yunmeng. Mountain. Yunmeng Mountain is a national forest park, known as the "Little Yellow Mountain in the North". It is a rare scenic spot in Beijing where you can see mountains, waters, the Great Wall, clouds, waterfalls and stone pines.

When you enter the scenic spot, you can see the first Internet celebrity check-in place-the Rainbow Stairs. The stairs are composed of various beautiful colors, and each floor has a different color. It is really like walking on a rainbow. As the colors jump, the mood also jumps and becomes relaxed and happy. There are 259 steps in the Rainbow Stairway, which means "Love me for a long time", and couples walking up the stairs hand in hand, the meaning is really beautiful.

Yunmeng Mountain is more than 1,000 meters above sea level, and it is not tiring to climb up. The autumn colors along the way are laid out like thick and colorful oil paintings, and there is a feeling of getting better.

But if you just want to enjoy the scenery and don't want to climb the mountain, the complete facilities in the scenic area can also be fully satisfied. Tourists can take the scenic tourist bus first, and the terminal is located halfway up the mountain. This is not only a place for tourists to take a rest, but also a "very interesting" halfway up the mountain.

There are various recreational facilities such as Hopeful Dragon Slope, Jingshan Pavilion, Xingyue Lake, 520 Love Valley Leisure Area, Xinsuo Bridge, Alpine Waterfall, Pine Tower Paradise, etc.

Standing on the Jingshan Pavilion, the sun is jumping on the leaves nearby, and the mountains are rolling with colorful autumn leaves in the distance. All these are like a magnificent oil painting, with perfect combination and changing ethereal colors.

Coming down from the Jingshan Pavilion, Xingyue Lake is quietly presented in front of you, shining like a gemstone under the warm autumn sun.

On the bank of Xingyue Lake, the tent restaurant leans against the green hills, where you can not only taste delicious food, but also enjoy the beautiful scenery. Fresh wind, patches of grass, comfortable wicker chairs... In this undisturbed corner, time slows down.

After a short rest, continue climbing. To reach the top of the mountain, tourists who like to exercise can choose the climbing route, and if they are bringing the old and the young, they can take the cableway. The Yunmeng Mountain cableway facility is top-notch around Beijing, with a total length of more than 2,500 meters. It takes about 15 minutes from the mountainside to the top of the mountain. The road is very smooth, and even timid people can rest assured.

Sitting on the cable car, you can see the mountains, rocks, autumn colors all over the mountains, and the Miyun Reservoir not far away showing a charming hue like Tiffany blue in the sun. Everywhere you look is the beautiful scenery of the mountains. Before reaching the top of the mountain, you are already physically and mentally comfortable.

Get off the cableway and walk to the Lingyun Observation Deck. When you come to Yunmeng Mountain, you must climb up the Lingyun Observation Deck to enjoy the panoramic view of the Miyun Reservoir and the emerald green mountains.

Taking a deep breath of the freshness of nature can not help but make people open-minded, and the anxiety and restlessness caused by work and life are all left behind.

After coming down from the mountain, we arrived at the hotel. After some exercise, we were already hungry. Farmhouses and restaurants around the scenic area are one after another, which is a good place for lunch. When you come to Miyun, you can’t miss the fish in the reservoir. Bighead carp, grass carp, carp, and silver carp are cooked with different fish flavors, such as stewed fish, stove fish, fish head cakes, and fried shrimp. The farmhouse paste pancakes, perfect!

Second stop: Night tour to Gubei Water Town

The water network in the ancient town is vertical and horizontal, and the ancient tributaries of Tanghe River linger in it, and the ancient buildings and houses are built according to the water. Sit on a black-covered boat on the green water waves, listen to the history of the ancient town told by the boatman, cross the stone bridges and the inns on both sides of the bank, look at the mountains and waterfalls, and enjoy the winding Great Wall. But it seems to be immersed in the gentle water. In autumn, the red leaves in Gubei Water Town attract many tourists and photographers.

At night, the lights of the water town light up one after another. There are row upon row of houses on Qingshiban Old Street, simple and elegant. The alleys are long and the river bends, which is the most beautiful time of the day in Water Town.

Wangjing Street is crowded with people, filled with a strong atmosphere of life and delicious food. Hundreds of years ago, the flames of war on the Great Wall have long been replaced by live fireworks. The mountains and rivers remain the same, but the world has changed.

The well-planned floodlit night view of the ancient town is extraordinary and refined, with a hint of warmth in the coldness. Whether it is the exquisite conception or the grand momentum, it is a beautiful scenery that cannot be missed.

Brick by tile, picturesque, with mountains and water, like a dream. Looking up, you can see the Simatai Great Wall in the night. The water town at night is completely different from the daytime. Under the illumination of the lights, the scene has changed. Everything becomes clear, and the bricks and tiles of the houses seem to be shining.

In the night, the lights are extraordinarily dazzling. The streets are not wide, and tourists on the bank sit by the river, feeling comfortable and leisurely. Sitting in the boat, watching all the way, it is full of brilliance, a river of golden powder. The whole water town is decorated with colored lights, and colorful lights are rushing towards you, making it inexhaustibly dazzling and prosperous.

DAY2: First stop: Look at Gubei Water Town during the day

In Lao She's writings, there is nothing bad about Beiping's autumn-"When it comes to the weather, it is neither hot nor cold. When it comes to food, there are several kinds of apples, pears, persimmons, dates, and grapes. There are several kinds of flowers and plants, such as chrysanthemums. There are so many of them, and they are so fancy that they can be the best in the world. You can see the red leaves in the West Mountain, and you can row a boat in the North Sea—although the lotus is gone, the lotus leaves still have a fragrance.” As time goes by, more than 50 years of old ink painting at the bottom of Taiping Lake, now, if Mr. Lao She has been to Gubei Water Town, and the autumn of Beiping that fascinated him will add another option.

Gubei Water Town is located in Simatai Village, Gubeikou Town, Miyun District, Beijing. It is backed by the most beautiful and most dangerous Simatai Great Wall in China, and sits on the Yuanyang Lake Reservoir. At the beginning of October, when there is still a trace of hot and dry summer in the city, the autumn air is already here. Tourists are warmed by the autumn sun. The ivy shows the appearance of autumn earlier than the maple leaves and ginkgo, stretching and shaking almost ostentatiously, and the sky between the branches and leaves is the unique clear blue in the north.

There is faith in the cool wind, and the boundless autumn moon. Every autumn, warm things make people linger.

Under the autumn, the leaves fall, yellow yellow, red red, there is also the last trace of stubborn green, but everyone knows that behind this lush greenery is a full-blown autumn.

The most beautiful autumn colors are hidden in the alleys, and the red leaves stretch leisurely along the path. Walking in it is like walking in a painting. The colorful autumn walls are also an excellent place for tourists to take pictures.

Different from the red leaves all over the mountains and plains in scenic spots such as Xiangshan, Hongluo Temple, and Pofengling, the red leaves in Gubei Water Town have a unique beauty combining plants and architecture, scenery and humanities.

The famous Yongshun dyeing workshop is hidden in an ancient street, and the bright stone road leads tourists to this once prosperous workshop. Yongshun Dyeing House was founded in 1900. The founder, Zhang Jukui, learned the unique skills of dyeing craftsmen in his hometown when he was a teenager. The dyed colors are bright and durable, and the colors are stable.

The air-dried fabrics dance in the wind like sails, drawing beautiful arcs, which makes people's eyes shine. Adults take pictures in the gorgeous fabrics, and children play and laugh in the beautiful cloth sea. Because of the presence of people, the beauty of this autumn is even more vivid.

The waterways meander around the town, and every high or low bridge becomes a place for people to stop.

During the Anti-Japanese War, the "Battle of Gubeikou on the Great Wall" fired the first shot of Beijing's Anti-Japanese War. The frontier town has gone through wind and rain, so the villagers respect the stories of these heroes.

Climb to Panlong Mountain in the north of the village, you can overlook the Great Wall, and you can also see the panorama of the whole village. In late autumn, the autumn wind is rustling, and the ancient village that used to be rich in gold and iron horses is now peaceful and peaceful. The history has left a deep imprint on the town.
