For this hike we journeyed way out into Miyun District, passing the big reservoir and driving up into the hills beside the White River.

We climbed up on to Dragon Cloud Mountain to take a look at the Ghost House and the river canyon, before descending and then walking up the river, passing through a cave and crossing over the frozen river.

This cave had been used recently for a film set, and they’d left some of the props – giant rocks!
