Taoyuan Fairy Valley

Situated at the foot of Yunmengshan National Forest Park, the Taoyuan Fairy Valley Scenic Area (Tao Yuan Xian Gu) is located in Shicheng Town, Miyun County, about 90 kilometers (56 miles) from Beijing.

Taoyuan Pavilion is an ideal place for a short rest and commands a fine view of the whole scenic area. The land of peach and blossoms is an earthly paradise surrounded by mountains and waters. A section of the Great Wall winds nearby, providing a lovely place for watching the magnificent sunrise. The Taoyuan Fairy Waterfall cascades from a high cliff, forming a large deep pool. Besides, this is a marvelous waterfall, which changes from time to time, prompting one to linger for a long time.

The scenic area has a strong appeal to visitors throughout the year. In spring, the whole area is covered by peach blossoms and many other wild flowers in full bloom, so tourists have a chance to feast their eyes on them.
