The Flower Wood to the Ming Tombs hillwalking challenge was a 26km hike through the hills of Huairou and Changping, starting in the north of Beijing and finishing back on the city side of the mountains.
We know a lot of trails in this area of Beijing, and there are options for hikes of 10km, 15km, and 20km. This time we decided to join the whole lot up for a good long 26km walk. Maybe next time we’ll add the last section and make it 30km!
The day before the hike we had a big rainstorm come through Beijing, and there was the threat of more rain throughout the day. In the end we got a big wind instead, which resulted in clear skies and long views.
