Get out of town and see some of the gorgeous scenery that surrounds Beijing with this eco-travel hiking company. Run by an Inner Mongolian walking enthusiast and a Belgian expat who loves the great outdoors, Dandelion meets regularly to go off the beaten path in search of beautiful China.
Their aim is to eat, sleep, and travel like locals, avoiding clichéd tourist spots and well-known areas. The company’s Great Wall hikes and bike trips are particularly good, going to out-of-the-way spots like Woushan and Longquanyu that are rarely visited by tourists.
Tours meet at various points around the city; you will be given the details when you book your tour.
