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 hikes in both summer and winter. In summer we can cross over the river and in winter we can walk on the iced river.

We will start our hike from Sihetang town and end our hike in Qingshiling village. The hike is very interesting and it includes river walking, bush walking beside the river and part of the trail takes us along the roads which jeeps drive along with. 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.

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 in the canyon. So we will cancel it or change the dates.
