Tengger Desert, Inner Mongolia, June 2017

Tengger Desert, Inner Mongolia, June 2017

The Tengger Desert is one of our favourite places to go outside of Beijing. As well as being able to trek, camp, and ride camels and jeeps way into the depths of the desert, you can also get a look at the pyramid-shaped tombs of the Western Xia Dynasty.

This visit was a private trip for a group of friends from Chengdu. Click through to see all the photos!

Walled Village to Huanghuacheng Great Wall, 2017/6/3

Walled Village to Huanghuacheng Great Wall, 2017/6/3

Nearby the Huanghuacheng Great Wall is an old walled village, which was once a barracks for Ming Dynasty soldiers. Somewhat strangely, it’s outside of the wall.

On this hike we start with a look about the village, and then climb up to one of the peaks of the Huanghuacheng Great Wall. We then follow the wall through the hills to finish by the Huanghuacheng reservoir.

Click through to see 14 photos from the hike!
