Longqing Gorge

A few hours north of Beijing is a place that has been compared to the Li River and the Small Three Gorges.

Longqing Gorge is quite a hidden and little known gem, given that it is not all that far from flat-as-a-pancake Beijing.

Although it was raining, at times like crazy, during the day we visited (the upside is that many of the normal weekend tourists were scared away), our collective judgment is that the place is spectacular and makes for a nice outing for someone who is visiting Beijing and has no time to check out the much more famous Three Gorges or limestone peaks of Guilin.


PS: There is bungee jumping off one of the peaks. No, we didn't try it...
