Departure date: Monday, April 30

Lily Village to Flower Wood

Book your place

Get a close-up look at small-time daily life in the Beijing countryside on a walk that passes by small settlements, cabbage and corn fields, chestnut orchards, and small time Lily Village. This is an easy hike, suitable for sporty kids and casual hikers – a little bit of climbing, but mostly flat. 3 hours of walking over approximately 7km, with views of forests, hills, and valleys.

Holiday traffic: There’s a chance we’ll get stuck in bad traffic at some point during the drive, and we might be back to Beijing later than estimated. We’d recommend not making fixed plans for the evening, just in case!

Ming Village day trip

Book your place

On this hike we’ll take a good look around the alleys and courtyards of Cuandixia, a 500-year old Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) village that is sometimes referred to as a living museum. . We’ll first take a walk in the hills near the village, then we’ll have a big lunch, and then we’ll take a tour of the alleys, lanes, paved stairs, and courtyard houses. It will be quite a long day, but well worth it! Lunch included.
