Things to do
Play on the sand: the inner shore of the lake has a small beach of gritty sand to play on.
Play on the grass: there’s a nice expanse of grass near the chestnut orchards and picnic area.
Park area activities: the scenic area usually has some extra entertainment options available, such as boat rides, mini-ditch diggers, and archery. We’ll see what’s available when we get there.
Climb the Great Wall: We’ll hike a short stretch of repaired Great Wall that offers amazing views over the water. Older kids can add on extra Great Wall.
Visit the Black Dragon Pool: Just outside the far border of the park is the Black Dragon Pool, a pool of water surrounded by tall cliffs. You’ll need to be a faster walk to explore this part of the park – it’s quite a long walk from the entrance. (Your guides can advise.)
Please contact us if you'd like more details about the plan.
Safety and supervision: we choose hikes that are not dangerous, and we’ll warn you about any parts of the hike that require extra attention. You’re responsible for watching your children. We’ll let you know where’s good to play.
Vehicle: all participants must wear seatbelts while in the vehicle. Ask us about bringing your car seat, as certain seats might not fit.
Weather: if the weather doesn’t look like fun, we’ll cancel or postpone the hike.
Food: bring your own picnic lunch. We’ll supply some snacks and water for you.
