  Itinerary Brief
Both Longqing Gorge and Mt. Yudu are in Yanqing District in northwest outskirts of Beijing, about 90-100km (56-62mi) from the city center and 11km (7mi) from each other. They are great destinations for a 2-day side trip from Beijing. 

On day 1, our guide will pick you up from your hotel in Beijing downtown and accompany you to Longqing Gorge by public transport. On arrival, please choose a hotel nearby to check in. Our guide will be glad to assist you with that. After check-in, have lunch and then start today’s exploration in the scenic gorge. At the end of the day, go back to the hotel for overnight stay.  

On day 2, after breakfast, check out from the hotel near Longqing Gorge and proceed to Mt. Yudu to enjoy climbing there. At last, the guide will escort you back to your hotel in downtown Beijing. 
Day 1 Beijing - Longqing Gorge
In the 7km-long (4mi) Longqing Gorge, undulating mountains and trickling streams integrate together perfectly, and you can see a pretty picture full of winding gorges, lucid rivers, precipitous cliffs and natural caves with fantastic stalactites and bizarre stalagmites. 

Longqing Gorge is a popular summer resort to escape the severe heat, enjoy drifting and appreciate the beautiful scenery. In winter, it turns to be a fairy land of ice and snow. Every year from early January to late February, the Ice Lantern Festival and the Longqing Gorge International Ice and Snow Sculpture Competition will be held here, and competitors from USA, UK, Australia, Russia, Spain, France, India etc, come together to create fantastic ice engraving works.

2. If possible, bring some of your favored snacks and fruit, too. They are either not available or priced higher inside or around the scenic areas.
3. The tickets of Longqing Gorge during the Ice Lantern Festival are in great demand. If you plan to travel during the time period on your own, buy a ticket in advance.
