Beijing is surprisingly good for hiking, with mountains that run from the west around to the northeast, and a lot of hiking trails and scenic areas that are a fairly quick 1.5-2 hour drive from the city.
If you’re ready to see more of Beijing’s hills, mountains, rivers, and villages, we’ve picked out a few trails that are well worth a look.
How to choose one? We've grouped them into the main categories that people ask us about—our personal favourite hikes, then tough hikes, long hikes, hikes with cultural and historical elements, and easy hikes. We hope this information helps give you some ideas!
