In April the temperatures in this area should be between 10-20°C. There is a chance of a few colder days, and a relatively small chance of a rainy day.
We will be staying in 4-star* hotels in Yanchi, Jingbian, and Yinchuan.
You’ll be sharing a room with another hiker. If you'd like a hotel room to yourself for the trip, it can be arranged at an extra cost of ¥600 in total, if rooms are available—usually not a problem!
Further details about room shares and single supplement can be found in the documents we send you as part of the registration.
* A local 4-star hotel might be more like a 3-star hotel in a major city.
We fly to and from Yinchuan for this trip. We plan to fly from Beijing fairly early on the first day, and our return flight should have us back in Beijing before 11pm on the last day*.
Transportation between Yinchuan, Yanchi, Jingbian, and the various scenic locations will be by private bus.
If you would like to organise your own flights, we can provide further details.
* Our plan for flight times can change depending on actual flight schedules and availability. Check with us if exact departure and return times are important for you to know.
Main meals and drinks, plus water to drink during the hikes, are included in the price of the trip.
Most of our meals will be at restaurants in the areas we visit, or at the hotels. On one of the days we include a picnic lunch for you. Bring some snacks and some spending money to buy extras.
Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements or food allergies.
We'll meet up at the airport. You'll be sent flight details and times in the week before the trip.
