The Baihua Cave was closed when we went. The place needs some upkeep. There are other more beautiful gorges in China.

Beautiful place. We hike up the mountain to see the beautiful scenery. A must if you have the time in Beijing. Cable car ride was short, cruise was great. Overall great visit.

Magnificent scenery --a very different world from Beijing only 2 hours away and off the beaten tourist track except for a few Chinese. Boat ride was the highlight. Food was plentiful and very good. Well worth the trip. Lillian, who organized the trip was helpful...More

My April visit was severely underwhelming, and I can't say that it was worth the trip to this hard to reach area. Judging by the ice and lantern festival decorations, it looks like Longqing Gorge might be quite nice in winter. However and unfortunately, I...More

Dear Katrin, I have to say I don't know for sure. But when we visited it was closed because there had been an accident. So I would say DONT do it, because it is not truly safe. I hoop you can find another place to do a... More

Longqing Gorge on Christmas (1 Replies)
Hi, I will be in Beijing this christmas for a short visit and I've heard all about the must see places in Beijing. I've also heard about Longqing Gorge but I couldn't find more info about the place. I would really appreciate advise on what it's usually like in december. Has anyone been there in december? Is there anything interesting to see or do in Longqing Gorge on christmas? Do I need to hire a guide and a driver to see the place?

It is a very nice place to visit. But is is closed from half way November until April. Only in Januari and Februari I read somewhere that there is an ice festival. The area is mainly visited by Chinese tourists. You need to hire a car, because it is pretty far from Beijing.

Best way to get to these places (9 Replies)
Hello aside from touring around Center Beijing, we'd like to venture outside a bit. What are the best ways to reach these places: Mutianyu gw Badaling gw Longqing Gorge Fangshan (Shidu, Shihua Cave) Pinggu glass sightseeing platform Can you recommend us some drivers or public routes for a group of 11 people living near Chaoyangmen metro. Also are there any attractions nearby those I just mentioned that can be combined with?

That page doesn't work for me. Do you know if drivers are flexible? Since most drivers usually do GW/Summer palace etc. but can't find info on Shidu or other places like Pinggu.
Is it possible to visit Longqing Gorge in March? (1 Replies)
I plan to visit Beijing in March 2014. Is it possible if I go to Longqing Gorge in Yanqing County while I'm in Beijing, in March? I know about the ice lantern festival, and that the festival would be over in February, but how about if I just mean to enter Longqing Gorge? Are there times when the gorge can't be entered by tourists? Is there someone here who ever visited Longqing Gorge in March?
