Detailed itinerary:
Miyun Reservoir is the biggest reservoir in Asia, people like to call it "Pearl of Yan Mountain". The White River is one of the two big rivers that feed the Miyun Reservoir. It runs through a few counties. In the Miyun county the river winds its way down a beautiful canyon with cliffs on both sides. The view is very scenic.

We offer the White River Canyon hike in both summer and winter. In summer we can cross over the river and in winter we can walk on the ice. Every year there are only about two weeks to one month that the White River is frozen thick enough for people to walk on it.

We will start our hike from Sihetang town and end our hike in Qingshiling. The hike is very interesting and it includes river walking in summer, ice walking in winter and bush walking beside the river. The whole hike takes about 3-4 hours and we will have our lunch in a wide spot where there are lots of big rocks.

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 we will cancel the hike or change the dates.
