Yunmeng Gorge Swim or Explore
Head out to Yunmeng Gorge for a hike-and-swim combo – perfect for hot weather!
The sandy beaches and pools of water in Yunmeng Gorge make a perfect place to picnic and swim, especially when you need to escape from the city.
We’ll walk up the gorge and find a good spot, and you can take a dip in the water or follow our guides to hike further up the canyon.
If you’d prefer to concentrate on swimming, just relax in the water or in the nearby area. The guides will let you know when it’s time to head out.
