  • Hike! Hiking Partner June-August 2017

    I will start June 6.2017, three-month trip in China, view, cities and hiking mountains and rural landscapes.

    Plan to do few days up to few weeks hiking trip Great Wall, so if you have any plans June to August and looking for hiking partner then contact me.

    Gubeikou, Jinshanling, Jiankou looks interesting, but I still looking more information how to find Fantastic places to go and Iím ready for any off-track adventures if someone need a fun traveling partner.

    Aside from the locations with Great Wall, I would suggest you consider visiting any (or all!) of the greater Tibet regions of northern Yunnan, western Sichuan, Qinghai and southern Gansu. You can start in Kunming in Yunnan and take the usual route via Dali, Lijiang and Shangri-La. There are some fantastic hikes in Yunnan such as the Tiger Leaping Gorge and the Yubeng trail to the foot of Mount Kawa Karpo.

    Then from Shangri-La to Litang via Daocheng or Xiangcheng in western Sichuan will be a real off-track adventure and from western Sichuan you can continue northwards through Aba to reach Xiahe in southern Gansu. From there you can either hop across the mountains to Tongren in Qinghai province or continue north to Lanzhou then proceed through the Hexi Corridor where you will find miles and miles of the Great Wall.

          You are right, even though I have a climbing / trekking experience, still some places, it is not wise to go alone. Might be better to stay safe that can continue adventure in road than hospital :-)

          Start to think that better visit 2 days Huanghuacheng lakeside Great Wall, which reminds me of my home country of lakes and forest. Nice to see the wall of the natural landscape, than the city where it seems to be like a plastic junk in tourist shop, of course this are tourist place too, but landscape make different. Another destination can be Jinshanling that are quite safe and landscape looks fantastic. Then is time to run out of Beijing (don't like so much big city's) to go see some mountains, like Huangshan.
