We’re best known for our small-group hikes, and over the years we’ve built a solid system of organisation. Over the years, we’ve also hiked pretty much everywhere in Beijing!
With all that experience we’re able to put together outdoor activities for larger groups, chosing locations that suit the activity requirements and fitness levels of participants, and making sure everything runs as smoothly as our normal hikes and trips.
China National Convention Center (CNCC) chose us to do their October company teambuilding, and we took them out into the hills for a relaxing day out of the office.
On the morning of the hike we set up at the meeting point in Haidian, and handed out snacks and water to the participants as they arrived.
Once everyone was on board we headed out to the countryside, starting with a stroll down through some villages before following a trail through chestnut orchards and climbing up on to a stretch of Great Wall.
After walking the wall we continued down a valley towards the Little West Lake, a park area beside a reservoir in the hills of Huairou District.
Beside the reservoir we got started with the taichi teambuilding, led by two instructors from the Beijing Sports University. They started off with a cooperative warm up and stretching session, and then started participants out on some basic taichi movements.
We thought this was a great combination for a company outing - getting out into nature for a hike, and learning some stretching techniques to help with the aches and pains of too much office work.
