Yanqi Lake lies at the foot of Yan Mountain in the Huairou District, about 60 kilometers north of Central Beijing. Yanqi means "goose rest" in Chinese. The lake got this name because of the migrant geese that flock to the lake for rest each spring and autumn.
1. When to go: Spring and Autumn are the best seasons to visit. During this time, there are large celebrations and festivals such as the Spring of the Lanqi Lake Garden Party and the Chinese Mid-Autumn and National Day Garden Party. Both seasons are also great for observing and contacting migrants birds.
