Hike & Camping

Price: RMB 350

Take a Miyun countryside ramble with us on a long walk through peaceful and sparsely populated hills, valleys and forests. This walk is quite long, but it's not difficult-there's not a lot of climbing up and down. The countryside scenery is excellent and we'll follow country trails and lanes through pine forests, cornfields, orchards, villages and farmland. Because it's one of the biggest holidays of the year, we might see extra hikers out and about, and we might get stuck in bad traffic on the way there or on the way back.
