NileGuide Expert Says:
Often referred to as the Guilin of the north, Shidu doubles as a popular destination for both rock climbing parties and local newlyweds hoping for that perfect wedding-day photo.
- The scenic Shi Du region is located approximately 100 kilometers from Beijing city center. Covering 300 square kilometers, it features dramatic karst limestone formations, craggy mountains and winding gullies. The area is like a beautifully painted corridor; crystal clear rivers cut through the mountains, and water-pools can be found at the feet of the slopes. Historic sites and cultural relics are dotted amongst the natural scenery. Entertainment facilities have been added in recent years so tourists can enjoy bungee jumping, water-skiing and other outdoor activities.
