Detailed itinerary:
Echoing Water Scenic Area is located in Bohai Town, Huairou District, and 78 kilometers from the downtown Beijing. It ranks among Beijing’s first group of Demonstration Base of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Culture Tourism.

The scenic area is located in a valley which the Great Wall builders of the Ming Dynasty had carefully chosen for part of their fortress works. It features the precipitous Moshikou Pass, which is know as "No.1 Wonder of Chinese Great Wall", Longmen Feixue Waterfall, Lianyun Cave, Tuteng Pavilion, the source of Echoing Water Lake with a daily water yield of 25,930 tons, 2-kilometer-long Body Care Canyon with a 1000-meter-long water view composed of over 200 pools and waterfalls, stone carvings of 50 ancient and famous doctors, 100-mu fruit-picking plantation and more than 100 varieties of medical herbs which can be found along the visiting trail.

In the scenic area, the negative oxygen ion content reaches 9,300 per square meters, nearby 100-fold more than the downtown area. The calcium content and magnesium content in the sweet spring water respectively reach 35.7MG/L and 15.4MG/L.

Bad weather plan:
We will email you 2-3 days before the hike to let you know about the weather condition. If there is thunder storm, heavy rain or strong wind it will be dangerous to do the hike on the wild unrestored Great Wall in the mountains. So we will cancel it, change the dates or arrange a hike to the restored section of the Great Wall.
