Beijing is probably one of the oldest cultures on Earth, with up to 3000 years of history. It has been the Chinese capital for over 700 years, since the Yuan Dynasty, throughout the Ming Dynasty, and up to the Qing Dynasty. Beijing became the capital of China, first, during the “Warring States Period”, in 221 BC. What we know as Peking is, according to its current Chinese name, Beijing. “Bei” means north and “Jing”, capital. Beijing is thus the Northern Capital. Before becoming Beijing in 1403, Beijing had at least 15 different names including Jicheng, Yanjing, Nanjing, Zhongdu, Dadu, Beiping, etc. Nowadays, Beijing is the Capital City of China and the center of Chinese political power.

Climbing mountain

Mountaineering is the sport of mountain climbing. While some scholars identify mountaineering-related activities as climbing (rock and ice) and trekking up mountains, others are also adding backpacking, hiking, skiing, via ferrata and wilderness activities, and still others state that mountaineering activities also include indoor climbing, sport climbing and bouldering.However, to most of the scholars, the term mountaineering is understood as climbing (which now refers to adventure climbing or sports climbing) and trekking (hill walking in ‘exotic’ places). Hiking in the mountains can also be a simple form of mountaineering when it involves scrambling, or short stretches of the more basic grades of rock climbing, as well as crossing glaciers.

While mountaineering began as attempts to reach the highest point of unclimbed big mountains, the sport has branched into specializations that address different aspects of the mountain and consists of three areas: rock-craft, snow-craft, and skiing, depending on whether the route chosen is over rock, snow or ice. All require experience, athletic ability, and technical knowledge to maintain safety.

Sightseeing

Tourism is travel for pleasure or business; also the theory and practice of touring, the business of attracting, accommodating, and entertaining tourists, and the business of operating tours. Tourism may be international, or within the traveller’s country. The World Tourism Organization defines tourism more generally, in terms which go “beyond the common perception of tourism as being limited to holiday activity only”, as people “traveling to and staying in places outside their usual environment for not more than one consecutive year for leisure, business and other purposes”.
