Things to do

  • Mutianyu Great Wall

    The Great Wall of China is located amongst orchards and pines in the northern Beijing mountains. The Wall was reconstructed at Mutianyu to keep out the nomadic tribes to the north. A short 60 kilometre-trip outside of Beijing, The Great Wall of China at Mutianyu stands as a monument to both the strength and weakness of the Chinese Ming Dynasty (1368-1627). Come learn, touch, and explore the history of the Wall built more than 609 years ago, yet which remains largely intact as it snakes endlessly across the mountain ridgelines.

  • Hongluo Temple

    Located at the foot of Hongluo Mountains in the northern Huairou District, Hongluo (Red Snail) Temple sits between the mountain and a large lake, marked by a large engraved pailou (arch) entrance gate. The building comprises five halls, each used for worshipping different gods. The temple is also famed for its bamboo grove which dates back to the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368) and contains tens of thousands of shoots. There are also Sakyamunis (one of the names of Buddha), 30-metre-high male and female gingkoes that are 1,000 years old, as well as an 800-year-old great pine entwined with two Chinese wisterias.

  • Miyun Reservoir

    Miyun Reservoir, located 100 kilometres north east of Beijing, is a mountain valley reservoir. Chaohe and Baihe Rivers flow into Miyun Reservoir and the catchment is about 15,788 kilometres, and consists of mountains and piedmonts. Miyun Reservoir was originally built to control flooding, irrigation and fishery, but now, the reservoir holds Beijing’s main source of drinking water. The tourist deck offers expansive views of the reservoir, mountains, fishing boats and building architecture surrounding the shores.
