Travelling on summer days, with a boundless stretch of flowers in full bloom around you, you may feel like you are traveling in an ocean of color. You may even smell the flowers and can’t wait to stand in the field. It will be a dreamy paradise when standing among the flowers with blue sky and white cloud as background.

A 5.6-mile-long (about 9 kilometers) railway bridge has begun construction over the reservoir on Oct 25th, 2016. When finished, passengers will have a chance to “fly” over the rippling lake.

 Jiming Mountain in Xiahuayuan

Yes, the trains are in service now. The ticket price is CNY27 per ticket one way from Beijing North to Badaling Great Wall Station, 7 rides a day each way. There is no news about the S2 line, I suppose they should still use Huangtudian station and Badaling Station as they are different rail line.
