  • Bashang Grassland

Generally, Bashang Grasslands include four parts namely Fengning Bashang, Zhangbei Bashang, Weichang Bashang and Guyuan Bashang. The four parts are located in four different counties in Hebei Province. For visitors from Beijing, Fengning Bashang is the site that is most accessible.

The special climate and geographical position at the junction of the North China Plain and Inner Mongolia Grasslands give Bashang its unique natural landscapes and make it a popular destination for tourists and photographers. The yearly average temperature here is around 15 degrees.

The period from June through September is the best time for visiting. The average temperature ranges from 17 degrees to 19 degrees during this period, about 10 degrees lower than that in downtown Beijing. Horse riding, camping, watching local wrestling competitions, or staying in farmers’ Mongolian yurts to eat whole roast sheep and other plain foods are the main attractions for visitors. Vast lakes, sunrises and sunsets over the grasslands provide great views for city dwellers who have grown tired of the urban sprawl. Grassland tourism in Bashang is a recent phenomenon.

SiMaTai Great Wall

The most beautiful part of Great wall,the only original Great wall of Ming dynasity.

Simatai Great Wall. which is well-known for its five characters of “steepness, compactness, queerness, wonderfulness, and comprehensiveness”, is located inGubeikou Town to the north-east of Miyun, Beijing. Simatai Great wall is exquisite in its details and is grand as a whole, which is the only part of ancient Great Walls with the original features of Ming Dynasty well reserved.

Chengde

In 1703, Chengde was chosen by the Kangxi Emperor as the location for his summer residence. Constructed throughout the eighteenth century, the Mountain Resort (避暑山庄; literally "avoiding the heat mountain villa") was used by both the Yongzheng and Qianlong emperors. Since the seat of government followed the emperor, Chengde was a political center of the Chinese empire during these times.The elaborate Mountain Resort features large parks with lakes, pagodas, and palaces ringed by a wall. Outside the wall are the Eight Outer Temples (外八庙), built in varying architectural styles drawn from throughout China. One of the best-known of these is the Putuo Zongcheng Temple, built to resemble the Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet. The resort and outlying temples were made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994. The nearby Puning Temple, built in 1755, houses the world's tallest wooden statue of the Bodhisattva Avalokiteśvara.

 

 

 

 

Day 1: Pick up from capital airport and transfer to hotel.Try the bikes and have a Easy ride in Beijing Hutong area and Houhai Tianan men square in the afternoon.

Day 2: Beijing to Huairou Town 40km

We will transfer from downtown to the surburb and ride along farms cannals and Huairou Reservoir to Huairou Town where we spent the night.

Day3: Liulimiao-Tanghekou-Labagoumen-Fengning, 55km

All we had to ride are mountain roads today. Soon we arrived at Tanghekou,

Riding up on slopes is laborious, but rushing downhill is fantastic. That’s the happiness of the sport, the air was fresh and the sencery was enjoyable. 30km to Fengning

 

Day4 Fengning-Tucheng-Kulongshan-Datan, 40km

The road to Tucheng,which means town of dirt, was dusty and bumpy. Alone the road some people were selling agate stones digged nearby. There was a grove of trees, which was named “Friendship Grove of China and Japan.”

There were many singing grasshoppers in the bush.

The Second stair is something about Chinese geography. When you stare at a China’s topographic map, you can easily divide China’s territory into three parts. The first part contains the highest altitude regions, including Tibet and Qinghai province, that is the “First stair”. The east part is the lowest plain or hills. This is the “Third stair”. And the “Second stair” is the mid-altitude part between them. “Bashang” means “the top of the second stair”. That is to say, we were going to climb the second stair from the first stair. So we had to conquer the most horrible slope. The slopes that we rode previously were nothing compared with this.

Day 5 Datan-Yuershan-Caoyuan-Duolun, 77km

 

The grassland of Datan has the reputation of “No.1 Grassland” north of Peking”. The ride will be memerable in your life.

The road is in high quality and no many slopes. The road was long and straight without any other landscape but grass. What worse, we couldn’t find any shadows under the sunshine! Because there were no trees on the flat grassland. Sometimes we might feel the road was endless.

A lot of larks were singing in the grass. Duolun is a county of Inner Mongolia. We had a big Monglian meal that night, including milk tea, finger mutton, dried milk cake and Mongolian noodles. The hotel was fine and the night of “Second stair” was cool. That was the most comfortable night since we came out.

 

Day 6

Duolun-Yudaokou-Jixielinchang, 100km

Saihanba National Forest Park. We got up early and had some Mogolian breakfast in the restaurant we patronized yesterday. Today’s journey was the easiest. We arrived at Yudaokou soon. After we had our lunch, turned north, we begain to march to Saihanba.

Riding to Saihanba was enjoyable. The road was in good quality and we still rode before the wind. What’s more, not like the way to Duolun, there were lot of flowers, butterflies, cows instead of pure grass. The hight is about 1500 here, not very high, but it not easy for us to come here from Beijing which is only tens of meters above the sea level.

We lived in a inn called Red Moon Inn, which provided imitative Mongolian yurts. “Extreme joy begets sorrow”, as the saying goes. We can do now was just sitting down peacefully to enjoy Bashang barbecue. Ok, that’s the end of today.

 

Day 7

Jixielinchang-Ulanbutong-General Pond-Ulanbutong-Jixielinchang, 20km×2
