Purple mountain area is a great, green and very quiet area. Lakes, trees etc. is OK however to me it is not worth to ascend 400 stairs just to see the mausoleum. You may visit if you have a lot! of time.

The views are incredible from the stairs up to the mausoleum. The trees and plantings are extraordinary. Parks connect the mausoleum to the Ming Tombs and other structures. We were there when the cherry trees were in bloom and it created a magical setting. Ponds,...More

Entry to the Zhongshan National Park Route which includes about 4 attractions including the Ming Tombs and Linggu Scenic Area, I read is about 100 yuan. Is there a discount for students? Any discount during winter months?
