Hike the Shui Changcheng（ Water Great Wall)1 day
This flat Great Wall trail curls trough the valley of a national park site with stunning scenery. The beautiful Shui Changcheng (Water Great wall )is nicely restored, surrounded by impressive mountains and of course… lots of water. After lunch at a local restaurant we start the hike on a paved trail in the national park. The surroundings are really stunning as the Great Wall curls on the mountain ridges and drops into the lake. We wouldn’t be China Hiking if we didn’t take you off the beaten path and hike another 5km in the nature. There are a few interesting trails we can take from here.
If you are fit we can climb the Wild Great Wall. During the winter we walk on a frozen river to a local artist living in the next valley. 3Th option is one for spring where we can follow another river and go stone hopping and boulder climbing for a while. All up to you. At our finish point our driver will pick us up again.
