Escape from the hustle and bustle of downtown Beijing and escape with us to Huairou District in northeastern Beijing. A mere 95km drive from downtown concrete Beijing takes us to the White River (Bai He) area with lush forests, clean air, and pure water. Come and swap the black asphalt for an area with 75% green vegetation cover. The area is popular for all sorts of outdoors sports including rock climbing, hiking and rafting. We will be doing the latter so prepare your Popeye and Olive Oil persona as we “row, row row the boat gently down the stream” for a 8km stretch that includes both quiet and rush moments.
We will not be doing anything too demanding, if my computer shape body can do it so can you, but even so this trip is not suitable for pregnant women (or even pregnant men).
This FCGroup daytrip is not yet on the tourist map and (like all FCGroup trips) is suitable for both foreigners and even the most local of local Chinese. This time the trip will conclude with what Lucy (Achinatours) has promised to be a magnificent local feast to reward those who dared to move out of the safety of downtown Beijing.
