Zhenbiancheng and Big Camp Plate Great Wall

Zhenbiancheng and Big Camp Plate Great Wall, 2017/9/16

The Zhenbiancheng to Big Camp Plate hike is one of our best long trails, following a rough line of early Ming Dynasty Great Wall through the mountains northwest of Beijing.

The day started out foggy, but a big wind came along to blow the skies clear – click though to check out a set of 35 photos from the hike.

White River hike, 2017/08/06

White River hike, 2017/08/06

The White River hike is one of our favourite summer walks – the views are excellent, and you can cool down by splashing about in the water.

The only problem is that summer in Beijing is also the most rainy time of the year, which sometimes spoils the river walks – either it rains, or the river level is too high to be safe.

No such problem on this visit! Click through to see the photos!

Stone Valley Great Wall, 2017/7/29

Stone Valley Great Wall, 2017/7/29

We’ve got a few trails on the wall in this area, and on this hike we did the version that makes a loop from Stone Valley village, hiking up roads and paths to find the Great Wall, and then following the wall back towards the village to finish.

The scenery was superb on this visit – lush, green hills, and long views of the Great Wall and surrounding mountains.
