Immortal Valley Loop, 2016/5/29
Take a look at photos from our visit to Immortal Valley.
The Immortal Valley Loop is a nice long hike that takes us up on to the ridgeline of the mountains west of the Miyun Reservoir.
We start in a park area, and hike out the back to get up to one of the peaks in the mountains.
The park area is popular with day trippers, but not everyone knows the trail to get up to the peak at the end of the valley, and even fewer people know the alternative trails down from the peak.
On this visit the skies were clear, and we had amazing views of the mountains and Miyun Reservoir once we got up to the top.
