Down the White River

Book your place

This hike begins near where we finish our regular version of our White River hike, and finishes further downstream.

On this route, we cross the river 7-8 times, passing the outskirts of small villages in an area that’s a bit quieter than our regular White River – fewer cars, more goats.

Note: If the river level is raised because of rain we might not be able to hike. We’ll know for sure in the week before the hike.

Camping: Hemp Village and Gubeikou Great Wall

Book your place

Hike from Hemp Village up to the Gubeikou Great Wall and camp in a tower on this relatively easy camping trip. We’ll take care of the heavy lifting and have the camping equipment delivered direct to our campsite; you’ll be free to enjoy the scenery, sunset, stars, and sunrise without all the sweat involved in a full-on camping expedition.

We’ll supply the camping equipment, water, snacks, and main meals; bring your camera and get ready to enjoy yourself!

Maximum group size of 12 hikers; book early to make sure you get a spot!

White River hike and rafting

Book your place

Special trip! Our White River hike is super popular in summer, and on this visit we’re going to have a go at rafting a wee bit of it before hiking the rest of the way.

We’ll float down a short stretch of the river before disembarking and finishing it off on foot, fording rivers and passing beneath tall cliffs on the way to the end.

Note: If the river level is raised because of rain we might not be able to hike. We’ll know for sure in the week before the hike.
